Trailing 1-0 to SV Werder Bremen, goals from Jeffrey Gouweleeuw and Konstantinos Stafylidis turned the tables on their hosts to earn Die Fuggerstädter their first points of the season. They will be keen to follow that up with their first win at home this season when Mainz come to town.

Mainz were leading 4-1 against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, but a second-half collapse meant Die Nullfünfer were hanging on for a point by the end of a dramatic 4-4 draw. As a result, Martin Schmidt's men are still winless, a trend they will be keen to end on Sunday at a venue where they have enjoyed plenty of success down the years.
