Werder Bremen will be without Leonardo Bittencourt for their upcoming Bundesliga game against Mainz.
Meanwhile, Jean-Manuel Mbom remains out, while Milos Veljkovic is a doubt.
“Mbom is still out. Leo Bittencourt is still ill and won’t be ready for Saturday. There is still a small question mark surrounding Milos Veljkovic,” Werder coach Ole Werner told reporters today.
Amos Pieper could fill in for Veljkovic if the Serbian international isn’t deemed fit enough to play.
