Atletico has been doing badly for a few rounds, the last match was a defeat with also weak Coritiba 2-0.

Coach will have great headache to set right players especially into defense line. Despite of slow opening and draw with Monchengladbach, Bayern is right prepared to this event and league completions. They can overcome Today’s opponent but should keep striker Halland underground.
YB unluckily achieved draw in last game with red lantern – Vaduz. It was caused by red card received for Nsame. In this game if we won’t see the same surprise hosts should overcome Sion.

Sandhausen started this year really poor after lost with Hannover 0:4. Coach Schiele said on the pre-match conference, that there is no ambitions into team, determination and engagement what caused the team lost. Coach expectation is to switch team behavior, but the problems looks to be in trainer itself and his replacement can change something. Into upcoming game with Heidenheim we won’t see defender Diego Contento, midfielder Linsmayer, and midfielder Nartey is questionable. Heidenheim in form, first match this year won with Nurnberg 2:0.
