The use of Werder Bremen's ailing top scorer Marvin Ducksch in the away game at Darmstadt 98 is still open.
“With Marvin, he trained yesterday and today,” said coach Markus at the beginning of Friday, but also added: “He can still feel something on his back.
We have to see how that develops. ”With four goals, newcomer Ducksch is currently Bremen's top scorer in this second division season.
Bremen - Offensive player Leonardo Bittencourt is also questionable for the game on Sunday (1.30 p.m. / Sky).
Goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka will definitely be out.
The long-time goalkeeper, who last sat on the bench, is suffering from flu.
For the beginning, the game in Darmstadt is a return to his previous employer.
"I'm looking forward to seeing one or the other again," he said.
