Carlos Salcedo had not been reported because of his long injury lay-off for the Europa League. The Mexicans therefore takes after his Comeback in the Bundesliga against Hertha BSC back to the spectator role. Marco Russ is as a new man for the Position as a right-hand member of the three-chain; to him, the break is likely to have in Berlin a lot of good. Also Filip Kostic does not enter the turf of the Olympic stadium of Rome. The Serbian winger player is suspended after his third Yellow card in the competition.
Unforeseen the failure of Jonathan de Guzman. The Dutch midfielder suffered a muscle injury and is a precaution spared. Kostic and de Guzman missing – two good reasons to give Jetro Willems a place in the starting line-up. The Dutchman has now proven twice that he can not only pursue an outside-left in his career, but also in the Central midfield. What has he not believed in himself. “There is something about the quality of the Trainer says that he saw something in me, what I had discovered. In the centre you get the other balls as on the Outside, not only the Position is different.

Gain the harmony at Lazio, they would be the first Team of the Bundesliga, and reached the group phase of the full score of 18. Both Hütter, as well as Willems mentioned spontaneously, the opportunity, the German record.
Lazio, by contrast, even the smallest occasion, once again right effort is missing. The Romans are as a group second. Coach Simone Inzaghi spoke to on Wednesday actually that of an “unimportant game”. What surprised Hütter, when he was asked about it: “each of us must know for himself, how he comes to such a game. We want to at least prove that we can play good football, and why we first. We have an obligation and a responsibility, not only towards the Fans, even compared to the other clubs and ourselves.“
Though the game offers little athletic explosiveness, is not light-hearted mood. The concern for the safety of the Frankfurt Fans received on Tuesday food.
