If Hoffenheim are to find a weakness in the Mainz line-up, it may well be at right-back. Demba Ba has pace to burn and he could prove to be a real handful for Radoslav Zabavnik. He got on the scoresheet against Koeln and is in good form.
Perhaps Polanski is a cop out as it is tricky to choose between Schuerrle and Holtby. However, the former Getafe midfielder was arguably Mainz's stellar performer in their victory in Munich. If he orchestrates the midfield battle in his team's favour against Luis Gustavo, Mainz could find themselves with a lot to celebrate come the final whistle.
