Possible line-ups: SV Darmstadt 98 vs 1. Köln

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 18.

SV Darmstadt 98 - 1. FC Köln (Saturday, 15:30CET)

SV Darmstadt 98 earned a 0-0 draw against Borussia Mönchengladbach in Torsten Frings’ first match in charge and the new boss is unlikely to tinker too much after watching his side end an eight-game losing streak in the Bundesliga. Darmstadt have not scored in five matches, though, so USMNT striker Terrence Boyd is a welcome addition after completing a move from RB Leipzig. Meanwhile, Tunisian attacker Änis Ben-Hatira has been released by the club.

Watch: Highlights of Darmstadt's draw with Gladbach on Matchday 17:

Defender Neven Subotic has joined 1. FC Köln on loan from Borussia Dortmund so he could potentially go straight into the starting line-up following their Matchday 17 scoreless draw at 1. FSV Mainz 05. Milos Jojic is a doubt after picking up an ankle problem in training and another midfielder, Köln captain Matthias Lehmann, is definitely out after suffering a setback in his bid to recover from a knee problem.
