The 23-year-old displaces his opponent markus schubert, who had last haunted the home of the konigsblauen four times in a row, to the substitutes’ bench. "Because schubu unfortunately couldn’t help the team in the last games and give the security we hoped for and expected", coach david wagner explained his decision to make the switch.
"I think it’s a very difficult situation for everyone, especially for him as a young goalkeeper," wagner told tv station sky. "Accordingly we have decided to change."It is already the fourth goalkeeper swap of the current season at the revierclub, which has been waiting for a win since ten bundesliga games. Nubel moves to FC bayern next season.
Wagner also fields three fresh players in the starting eleven against bremen. Jean-clair todibo, juan miranda and michael gregoritsch will play for matija nastasic, bastian oczipka and guido burgsmuller. "Of course, it’s also a matter of freshness," said wagner. "And then we are also responsible to see that the boys stay healthy." At werder there were three changes after the 0-0 against monchengladbach: kevin vogt, sebastian langkamp and leonardo bittencourt replace christian grob, milos veljkovic (yellow suspension) and yuya osako.
Wagner defended FC schalke’s defensive tactics in the defeat to fortuna dusseldorf, which had been criticized in part. "This decision has been made and of course we exchange ideas, where does the team feel more stable, better, where are we able to win duels again," said wagner. After the 1-2 defeat in dusseldorf on wednesday, wagner was criticized for his team’s defensive approach.
"We’ve chosen this approach before and at least restored defensive stability for once," said wagner, referring to FC schalke’s last games before the corona break in the fubball bundesliga. "Accordingly, that was the approach in this game and also the right one at that moment," the 48-year-old added.
Hertha BSC must also do without attacker matheus cunha against FC augsburg.

At the auarmen before the game against the FCA was in rough letters "THANKS" on the back of the blue shirts of the berliner. On the grandstand of the empty berlin olympiastadion because of the exclusion of spectators during the pandemic was a rough flag with the inscription: "herthaner help. We together for berlin."
Eintracht frankfurt starts bundesliga match against vfl wolfsburg with four changes in the starting lineup. Compared to the 3:3 against SC freiburg, coach adi hutter sends defender david abraham and midfielders dominik kohr, timothy chandler and mijat gacinovic new to the field. The frankfurters are winless in the fubball bundesliga for six games and want to end this negative streak at the volkswagen arena.
Sports director fredi bobic sees eintracht frankfurt in a "dangerous situation" in the fubball-bundesliga’s relegation battle. "You can be in the relegation battle for a long time, then you know what you’re up against. What’s dangerous for us is that we’ve slowly been pushed through," bobic said before the game at vfl wolfsburg on TV station sky. "That’s a dangerous situation when you slowly creep in there." The team must know: "now it pays, we need points."
Eintracht have only picked up one point from the three games after the corona break and are two clear of the relegation zone ahead of saturday’s game. He is still not nervous, said bobic. "Because the team also has a qualitat that it must show on the pitch."He sees the lack of spectators as a disadvantage for his team. "We are already missing the atmosphere, we are a team that needs it very much," said bobic. "We’ll have to leave that out now. We have to do better, that we are there from the first minute and are also in the game."
Coach achim beierlorzer warns his relegation-threatened FSV mainz 05 team against further fluctuations in performance. These are indeed "explicable with a young team that has great potential," the 52-year-old said on sky before the game against TSG hoffenheim. "But of course we can no longer afford that now."From the three games since the restart, the mainz team had scored only two points, and with a total of 28 players, the rheinhessen team was in 15th place before the saturday games.
Hoffenheim will be without right backs pavel kaderabek and florian grillitsch. For kaderabek melayro bogarde plays on the right in the back four. Sebastian rudy moves into midfield for grillitsch.

Juste, for whom alexander hack takes over the central defender position.
