THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia M'gladbach suffered their second league defeat of the season at Borussia Dortmund last Saturday before drawing 1-1 at Roma in the Europa League on Thursday.
  • Coach Marco Rose is sweating over the fitness of top scorer Alassane Plea after he missed the trip to Rome through injury, so fit-again Lars Stindl, who has come off the bench in the last two games, could start up front.
  • Rose will also make late decisions on Raffael and Matthis Ginter, who have missed the last couple of games, but Jonas Hofmann made his comeback from injury against Roma.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Sommer; Lainer, Elvedi, Ginter, Wendt; Benes, Kramer, Zakaria; Herrmann, Embolo, Thuram

Unavailable: Johnson (Injured), Musel (Injured), Bennetts (Injured), Sippel (Injured)

Doubtful: Strobl (Injured), Traore (Injured), Plea (Injured), Raffael (Injured), Ginter (Injured)

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt are unbeaten in six games in all competitions following Thursday's 2-1 win at home to Standard Liege in the Europa League.
  • Strikers Bas Dost and Andre Silva will be assessed after missing Thursday's game so top-scorer Goncalo Paciencia, who ended his mini drought with a brace against Leverkusen last Friday, will lead the line again.
  • Almamy Toure has been ruled out for around four weeks after suffering a thigh injury against Leverkusen, while midfielders Jonathan de Guzman and Lucas Torro remain doubtful.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Ronnow; Hasebe, Hinteregger, Abraham; Durm, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Kamada; Andre Silva, Goncalo Paciencia

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Trapp (Injured), Toure (Injured)

Doubtful: De Guzman (Injured), Lucas Torro (Injured), Dost (Injured), Andre Silva (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Frankfurt have scored in each of their last nine away Bundesliga matches but they are yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels this season - and they are unlikely to against current leaders Gladbach. Fatigue could be an issue for both teams after their European exploits, which could mean goals for both.
