- Changes possible after DFB Cup defeat for Darmstadt.
- 'Never change a winning team' the mantra for Leipzig.
- Two sides in DFB Cup action midweek.
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 9.
No changes are expected to the regular Darmstadt starting XI with Norbert Meier again picking from an almost fully-fit squad, although defeat in the DFB-Cup may tempt him to give some fringe players a chance.
Leipzig are seeking a ninth game without defeat and since things have been going so well this season, there is little reason for Ralph Hasenhüttl to make any changes. Davie Selke is on standby if the coach does decide to make an amendment up front.
Darmstadt possible line-up: Esser - Höhn, Milosevic, Sulu, Guwara - Gondorf, Jungwirth - Ben-Hatira, Kleinheisler, Bezjak - Schipplock
Absentees: Rosenthal (calf), Platte (hip)
Coach: Norbert Meier
Leipzig possible line-up: Gulacsi - Bernardo, Orban, Compper, Halstenberg - Demme, Keita - Kaiser, Forsberg - Werner, Poulsen
Absentees: Klostermann (cruciate ligament), Sabitzer (ankle ligament)
Coach: Ralph Hasenhüttl
Darmstadt host Leipzig at the Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Böllenfalltor with the game kicking off at 15:30CEST/13:30GMT on 29 October.
