Another place where there’s not a whole lot of reason to change things up. Despite the inconsistency lately, it’s clear what the best attacking set-up is for this team, at least until proven otherwise.

Amine Harit will retain the No. 10 role, relying on support from McKennie and Schopf coming from deeper on either side of him. Harit has been finding himself back in top form lately and that’s always something to look forward to.

Lastly, with the front two expected, Benito Raman and Michael Gregoritsch should continue their quest to form an effective partnership. Raman has nothing to worry about, he’s a tremendous player and a blessing to this attack. The more he plays, the better off we seem to be. And of course, he has to be feeling good with that last minute goal midweek.

As for Gregoritsch, he might be feeling less good. Nonetheless, he should be eager to get back into good form. After a killer debut against Borussia Monchengladbach, he’s been far too much of a nonfactor. It’s time to get him back in front of goal where he can put the finishing touches on the attack.
