THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia M'gladbach face their second Rhine derby in the space of just over a week having beaten Koln last Saturday before suffering an embarassing 4-0 defeat at home to Wolfsberger AC in the Europa League.
  • Striker Julio Villalba made his comeback from injury in a friendly in midweek but Lars Stindl, Jonas Hofmann, Torben Musel and Tobias Strobl are all out.
  • Wingers Keanan Bennetts and Fabian Johnson are doubtful but Oscar Wendt is set to return at left-back having missed the match against Koln through illness.

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

Unavailable: Stindl (Injured), Hofmann (Injured), Musel (Injured), Strobl (Injured)

Doubtful: Villalba (Injured), Bennetts (Injured), Johnson (Injured)

FORTUNA DUSSELDORF

  • Fortuna Dusseldorf had to settle for a 1-1 draw at home to Wolfsburg last Friday, taking their points tally to four.
  • Andre Hoffmann and Nana Ampomah have had time to recover from the illness that ruled them out against Wolfsburg but Markus Suttner is doubtful with a knock.
  • Tim Wiesner has joined fellow reserve keepers Michael Rensing and Raphael Wolf on the treatment table but midfielder Marcel Sobottka is closing in on a return to action.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Steffen; Zimmermann, Ayhan, Adams, Giesselmann; Bodzek, Baker; Thommy, Fink, Kownacki; Hennings

Unavailable: Rensing (Injured), Stoger (Injured), Barkok (Injured), Morales (Injured)

Doubtful: Sobottka (Injured), Wolf (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Fortuna Dusseldorf have never beaten their near neighbours away from home in the Bundesliga but they will be hoping to capitalise on their six days' extra rest compared to Gladbach. The Foals are not exactly in great form at BORUSSIA-PARK either, so Dusseldorf could spring a surprise here.
