Hajou's view on Mainz

In the absence of head coach Torsten Lieberknecht (pictured r.) due to personal reasons, assistant Ovid Hajou (l.) spoke at Thursday's press conference: "We're facing a good Bundesliga club in Mainz, who've finished in the safety of midtable in the last two years. This season things haven't quite gone as they'd imagined. The win last weekend against Leipzig will have filled them with renewed confidence. We're expecting a team that plays with a lot of intensity. We've analysed their weaknesses and will draw some conclusions."

Siewert's view on Darmstadt

"It'll be heated - we have to accept that. Darmstadt are direct in getting forward. It'll be about every centimetre. We'll need the same energy, attitude and intensity as we had against Leipzig. I'm trying to lead by example there."
