THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach missed the chance to go second last Saturday as they squandered a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw with title rivals RB Leipzig.
  • They were not helped by top scorer Plea's sending off and he is therefore suspended for this match, with Embolo expected to take his place.
  • Kramer is likely to miss out after coming off with concussion against Leipzig but fellow midfielder Benes is fit again having missed that game.

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

Unavailable: Musel (Injured), Bensebaini (Injured), Jantschke (Injured), Plea (Suspended)

Doubtful: DOUBTFUL PLAYERS HERE (ADMIN)

KOLN

  • Koln bounced back from their 5-1 thrashing at Borussia Dortmund with an emphatic 4-0 win at home to Freiburg last Sunday, moving them further clear of danger.
  • Coach Gisdol has no reason to make any changes to his starting line-up, with in-form Cordoba set to lead the line again having netted seven goals in his last nine appearances.
  • Verstraete, Thielmann and Hauptmann have all been affected by illness this week, while January signing Rexhbecaj is still battling a niggling knee problem.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Horn; Ehizibue, Bornauw, Czichos, Katterbach; Skhiri, Hector; Drexler, Uth, Jakobs; Cordoba

Unavailable: Clemens (Injured)

Doubtful: Rexhbecaj (Injured), Verstraete (Illness), Thielmann (Illness), Hauptmann (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Koln have had some impressive results in recent weeks but mostly at home. Getting anything from Monchengladbach, who have won their last eight home league games, is a big ask but given that they have scored eight goals in their three matches this year, the visitors should at least grab a goal.
