The four-way battle between Simon Makienok, Etienne Amenyido, Maximilian Dittgen and Igor Matanovic for the place next to Guido Burgstaller could lose a competitor and become a triel. The former is still suffering from a knee injury and is therefore questionable for the game against Aue.
“It still stems from a collision with Vasilj and an opponent from Sandhausen,” said Timo Schultz. As a reminder, the game was on November 24th. “He is actually able to train permanently, sometimes the knee reacts a bit.”

That could cost the giants a place in the squad, with Matanovic there is a similar striker available. The still ailing Afeez Aremu and Luca Zander will certainly be missing after corona infection.
