Due to a completely injury-free group to choose from, the Saarbrucken boss Rüdiger Ziehl doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this game.
In our opinion, Hallescher are likely to get a goal against this Saarbrucken outfit, although just one goal probably won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
