On Monday The DFL sports-ruling committee announced that Tesche would be ineligible for his team's next two league fixtures based on "unsportsmanlike conduct". As many had anticipated, Tesche lined up as a linchpin sweeper in head-coach Thomas Reis' constellation.
In rebuilding his central midfield, Reis may turn to Hertha loanee Eduard Löwen.
