Stuttgart (AP) - VfB goalkeeper Gregor Kobel is out in the Bundesliga game against his former club FC Augsburg due to back problems.

Fabian Bredlow stands between the posts for the regular goalkeeper on Friday evening.

On his comeback as a coach in the Bundesliga, Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl changed the starting line-up to five positions compared to the 2: 3 against Cologne.

Florian Niederlechner, Robert Gumny, Rani Khedira, Jan Moravek and Marco Richter are in the starting line-up.

Weinzierl was brought back to FCA as Heiko Herrlich's successor after the defeat against 1. FC Köln.

The 46-year-old had already worked as a trainer in Augsburg from 2012 to 2016.

He played his last game in the Bundesliga in April 2019 with VfB Stuttgart at FC Augsburg.

After a 6-0 defeat, he was given leave of absence.
