FSV Mainz 05 trainer Jan Siewert revealed that he would have to do without first-choice keeper Robin Zentner in the coming weekend encounter against SC Freiburg at his Thursday presser.

Siewert's two options to stand in goal are 32-year-old journeyman Daniel Batz, who once made a Bundesliga appearance for SC Freiburg in 2012, and 22-year-old Lasse Rieß. The youngster has never made a top-flight appearance, but served as Zentner's presumed back-up on most of Mainz's match-day bench squads this season. Siewert played the matter of who would start on Sunday very close to the vest, merely commenting that "both of them are fit for the Bundesliga."
