THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach's lead at the top of the Bundesliga was cut to one point last weekend after their surprise defeat at Union Berlin, but they returned to winning ways in the Europa League on Thursday.
  • First-choice centre-back pairing Ginter and Elvedi both missed Thursday's match against Wolfsberger AC, but the latter is expected to recover in time.
  • Embolo and second-choice goalkeeper Sippel returned to the squad in midweek while Kramer is set to be recalled in midfield having been suspended in the Europa League.

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

Unavailable: Musel (Injured), Poulsen (Injured)

Doubtful: Doucoure (Injured), Ginter (Injured), Elvedi (Injured)

FREIBURG

  • Freiburg could not hold on to an early lead as they drew 1-1 at Bayer Leverkusen last Saturday, but they have only lost one of their last nine Bundesliga matches.
  • The game is likely to come too soon for first-choice goalkeeper Schwolow so Flekken is set to continue in goal, but midfielder Abrashi returned to full training this week.
  • Frantz or Sallai could come in for Borrello, who failed to impress at Leverkusen, while left-back Itter is doubtful due to illness.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Flekken; Lienhart, Koch, Heintz; Schmid, Haberer, Hofler, Gunter; Holer, Petersen, Sallai

Unavailable: Kubler (Injured), Tempelman (Injured), Waldschmidt (Injured), Grifo (Suspended)

Doubtful: Schwolow (Injured), Itter (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Gladbach have won their last four Bundesliga games at home and have also won all four of their Bundesliga matches following Europa League games this term. Freiburg have been a tough nut to crack this season but the Foals should have enough quality to get the three points.
