They are placed 15th on the league table just above the relegation zone which they sit 4 points above. Coach, Achim Beierlorzer will try to do everything possible to stay above the red zone when he takes on Union Berlin on Wednesday. He will adopt a 4-2-3-1 formation with Robin Quaison who has scored an impressive 12 goals this season leading the attack.
