Daniel Heuer Fernandes could start in goal, if Michael Esser does not recover from a shoulder injury in time for Darmstadt. Alexander Milosevic and Immanuel Höhn both have a chance of partnering Aytac Sulu at centre-back.In midfield and attack, manager Norbert Meier could field an unchanged team.

Giulio Donati and Daniel Brosinski compete for the spot at right-back for Mainz, with the latter also providing a possible option on the wing. Fabian Frei is still doubtful and could be replaced by Suat Serdar in central midfield. Jairo could return from injury here, but most likely won’t make the match day squad.

Mainz have had a solid start to the Bundesliga season and picked up eight points from six matches, all while playing in the Europa League group stages. They have not won at home in their opening two league games and want to get a result against a beatable Darmstadt side.

Darmstadt have lost all of their three matches on the road so far. They have not scored a goal on their travels and conceded nine, with six of those coming from their trip to Dortmund.

Expect this to be a hard-fought game, with Mainz favourites to win at home.
