Hoffenheim vs Mainz Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Hoffenheim vs Mainz lineups and team news for Sunday’s Mainz bout below.

Hoffenheim

Mergim Berisha, Marco John and Dennis Geiger are out injured at present while Robert Skov and Pavel Kaderabek are both rated as touch and go. Sixth-placed Hoffenheim drew 1-1 at Augsburg in their last league outing.

Predicted Lineup for Hoffenheim: Baumann – Kabak, Vogt, Akpoguma – Stach, Bebou, Promel, Becker, Bulter – Beier, Weghorst

Mainz

Mainz will be missing the injured Maxim Leitsch, Karim Onisiwo, Joshua Guilavogui, Nelson Weiper and Andreas Hanche-Olsen on Sunday while Dominik Korh and Sepp van den Berg are suspended. Jonathan Burkardt is suspended and might be involved.

Predicted Lineup for Mainz: Zentner – Bell, Caci, Fernandes – da Costa, Krauß, Barreiro, Mwene – Jae-Sung, Gruda, Ajorque

Player to Watch – Wout Weghorst

Wout Weghorst has been in good goal-getting form for club and country of late and the giant striker has scored four times in his last six outings for Hoffenheim and the Netherlands combined. Weghorst should be brimming with confidence following his recent surge and he could be a decent anytime goalscorer option on Sunday.
