After back-to-back wins in Beierlorzer’s first games in charge Mainz slipped to a maiden defeat under their new coach last weekend, losing 2-1 at Augsburg. Baku is available again after suspension but fellow midfielder Latza has been ruled out until the New Year after undergoing back surgery.
Witsel will miss the remaining games of the year after suffering a facial injury so Weigl and Brandt could form the midfield pairing again, as they did in midweek, but there could be rotation elsewhere.
