Die Werkself were a few minutes away from defeat at VfL Wolfsburg last week, but goals in quick succession from Admir Mehmedi and Tin Jedvaj saved the day and ended the prospect of a third straight loss in the Bundesliga. After their Champions League exploits midweek, three points at home on Saturday could see them take a stride towards the European places once again.

Darmstadt’s inconsistency came back to haunt them at home with a 2-0 defeat by RB Leipzig on Matchday 9. An inability to follow up on victories with points next time out coupled with an away record of four losses from four, leaves Norbert Meier's side determined to buck the trend and start moving up the table again.
