- Uth a candidate for Hoffenheim return.
- Adler ruled out for Hamburg.
- USMNT striker Wood suspended.
Official Fantasy Bundesliga Managers take note: bundesliga.com is on hand to provide likely line-ups as well as injury and suspension news ahead of Matchday 11.
Mark Uth has returned to training and even scored in a 5-4 friendly defeat to Heidenheim during the international break, giving TSG 1899 Hoffenheim head coach Julian Nagelsmann another option. He may have to make do with a place on the bench to start with, considering how well the Hoffenheim team has been working since he picked up an injury in September, but with seven goals in the second half of last season and three this term, the 25-year-old can still be relied upon to score if he does get the chance even as a substitute.

If it does not rain, it pours – that is how Hamburger SV coach Markus Gisdol will be feeling as he prepares to face his former club with a doubt over goalkeeper Rene Adler, who has not recovered from an elbow injury he picked up prior to Matchday 10, even though he gritted his teeth to play in that game against Borussia Dortmund. Christian Mathenia is on standby to deputise. Furthermore, Albin Ekdal returned from international duty with an ankle injury and Emir Spahic picked up an adductor injury while away with Bosnia-Herzegovina. USMNT striker Bobby Wood is suspended.
