Fortuna Düsseldorf Team News:
Twenty-two-year-old striker Dawid Kownacki has been ruled out of this game due to a knee injury.
Fortuna Dusseldorf released a statement this week that American goalkeeper Zack Steffen (Zackary Steffen) is back in training this week following a long injury lay-off. The 24-year-old has been recovering from a knee injury since last year and is yet to play this season.
“Zack trained out on the pitch for the first time today, which was great,” Dusseldordf head coach Uwe Rösler, who replaced sacked Friedhelm Funkel, said ahead of the game.
“But there's no need asking yet if he’s ready to play: he still needs some time.”
Florian Kastenmeier will start in goal for the home side.
Center-back Andre Hoffmann is available once again following a one-game suspension.
Kenan Karaman and Rouwen Hennings are both expected to start up top for Fortuna.
Fortuna Düsseldorf key players:
Rouwen Hennings: Fortuna's player of the season. He has been carrying the fight for the club. The 32-year-old German has scored 11 times for the team this season.
Erik Thommy: He should be considered as well. For he can make the impact with his passing and is a threat in front of the goal as well.
Paderborn team news:
Paderborn have some real issues ahead of this match with a handful of players missing from the squad due to injury issues.
Uwe Hünemeier (knock), Luca Kilian (hamstring), Streli Mamba (knee), and Sven Michel (groin) will miss the game for the hosts.
Christopher Antwi-Adjei (thigh), on the other hand, is lacking match fitness and will be a game-time call.
Head coach Steffen Baumgart may ring in a few changes with on-loan Hertha Berlin player Dennis Jastrzembski in contention for a start.
New signing Samúel Kári Fridjónsson, who arrived from Valerenga Oslo, may get his first start for the club.
Boss Baumgart also confirmed that Antony Evans lacks the match fitness to play full 90 minutes.
Paderborn key players:
Kai Proger: Paderboron's most effective player. He leads the team with six assists this season. He must be on your team. Goals- 02.
Dennis Srbey: With leading goal scorer Mamba still out with an injury, Srbeny will be crucial for the team in this game and also going forward.
