Trouble for Hannover 96 this week, as a stomach bug has taken down seven 1st team squad players. Add that to a few injuries (which includes Steve Cherundolo's strained abdominal muscle) and Hannover will only have 14 players available for today's 2nd Round DFB-Pokal Cup match with Schalke. Of course that could also mean a start or appearance for Sal Zizzo, the young American made his first Bundesliga appearance this past weekend when he came on as a second half sub. That would assume he isn't effected by the stomach virus though, so we'll have to wait and see. Heath Pearce's Hansa Rostock and Michael Bradley's Bor. M'gladbach are also in action tonight, facing off against Eintracht Frankfurt and Energie Cottbus, respectively.
