Team News: Duisburg
Duisburg manager Torsten Lieberknecht has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Moritz Stoppelkamp (Virus Infection), Joshua Bitter (Torn Muscle) and Cem Sabanci (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
When taking everything into account, Duisburg will have to play well to find the net against this Hansa Rostock side who we think might well manage to score & go ahead.
Therefore, we predict a 1-0 winning score for Hansa Rostock at the conclusion of the game.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
