THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach have collected 11 points from their last five games and will move above Dortmund into third place with a win on Saturday evening.
  • Key forward Thuram faces a late check after coming off with an injury at Augsburg last Saturday, while Johnson, Benes and Traore have all been suffering from illness.
  • Captain Stindl will keep his place in attack after netting a brace at Augsburg, but he is one of five players who are one booking away from a ban.

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

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Johnson (Illness), Thuram (Injured), Benes (Illness), Traore (Illness)

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

  • Borussia Dortmund recorded their fourth successive win in all competitions at home to Freiburg last Saturday and coach Favre will be particularly pleased by his team's defensive improvement.
  • Hummels has been a key part of the back three that have conceded just once in those four games and he has shaken off the knock which forced him off at Augsburg.
  • Haaland was only fit enough for the bench at Augsburg but should start ahead of ex-Gladbach man Hazard here, while fellow striker Gotze is also fit again after sitting out the trip to Bavaria.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Burki; Piszczek, Hummels, Zagadou; Hakimi, Witsel, Can, Raphael Guerreiro; Brandt, Haaland, Sancho

Unavailable: Delaney (Injured), Reus (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

A mouth-watering match is in prospect in Monchengladbach on Saturday evening. Free-scoring Dortmund have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven away games in all competitions, while the Foals have done so in eight of their last nine home league matches, so expect goals galore.
