THE TEAM NEWS

AUGSBURG

  • Augsburg have won just one of their last seven Bundesliga matches but they are still comfortably in mid-table for now.
  • Captain Baier is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Bayer Leverkusen, so Gruezo or Lowen could be recalled in midfield.
  • Moravek and Hahn are doubts due to injury and illness respectively while Cordova, Asta, Schieber and Giefer are set to miss out again.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Koubek; Framberger, Gouweleeuw, Jedvaj, Iago; Richter, Khedira, Gruezo, Max; Finnbogason, Niederlechner

Unavailable: Cordova (Injured), Asta (Injured), Schieber (Injured), Giefer (Injured), Baier (Suspended)

Doubtful: Moravek (Injured), Hahn (Illness)

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach were denied victory by a stoppage-time equaliser at home to Hoffenheim last Saturday, leaving them six points off the top.
  • Johnson will be monitored after missing the last game with a cold but fellow winger Bennetts returned to full training this week.
  • Fit-again Bensebaini could be restored at left-back in place of Wendt but otherwise it is likely to be an unchanged line-up.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini; Neuhaus, Zakaria; Hofmann, Stindl, Thuram; Plea

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Johnson (Illness), Bennetts (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Fans at the WWK Arena have seen no shortage of goals this season. Nine of Augsburg's last 10 home league games have produced three or more goals and given that the reverse fixture finished 5-1 to Gladbach, who are yet to keep a clean sheet this year, another high-scoring encounter is on the cards.
