Berlin (dpa) - Hertha BSC will play in the Bundesliga game on Tuesday evening with Matheus Cunha in the starting line-up against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.

Coach Bruno Labbadia had categorically excluded the Brazilian from playing in the starting line-up the day before because of his groin problems.

The 21-year-old replaces Dodi Lukebakio in attacking midfield, with whom Labbadia was recently dissatisfied.

Otherwise, the Hertha coach leaves his team in the Olympic Stadium unchanged compared to the 0-0 at 1. FC Köln.

Jhon Cordoba and Krzysztof Piatek will once again serve as dual leaders.

Sebastian Hoeneß also only made one change in the starting line-up at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim after the 0-0 win against Arminia Bielefeld.

Christoph Baumgartner joins the team for Ihlas Bebou.

Hertha and Hoffenheim hope for a sporting turnaround in 13th and 14th place after a disappointing first half of the first half of the Bundesliga.
