THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach slipped to third after their 2-0 defeat at Schalke last Friday but they have won each of their last seven Bundesliga games on home soil.
  • Coach Rose has worries in defence as Jantschke has been ruled out after suffering an injury at Schalke and Lainer is suspended, but Elvedi is expected to be fit in time.
  • Youngster Doucoure could therefore be called upon to provide cover on the bench, while Rose is also likely to make changes in midfield with Benes, Neuhaus and Stindl all in contention.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Sommer; Johnson, Ginter, Elvedi, Wendt; Neuhaus, Stindl, Zakaria; Herrmann, Plea, Thuram

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

Doubtful: Elvedi (Injured)

MAINZ

  • Mainz suffered their fourth defeat in five Bundesliga games at home to Freiburg last Saturday, leaving them just a point above the relegation play-off place.
  • Midfielder Latza is fit again and could replace Malong, who is suspended after collecting his fifth booking of the season against Freiburg.
  • Coach Beierlorzer has no new injury concerns and striker Ji Dong-Wong could make his comeback after being an unused substitute last weekend.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Zentner; Brosinski, Hack, Niakhate, Aaron Martin; Latza, Baku; Oztunali, Boetius, Quaison; Mateta

Unavailable: Bell (Injured), Fernandes (Injured), Malong (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Borussia Monchengladbach have won their last seven home league games but there was only one clean sheet among them. The Foals are also missing players in defence for this one so Mainz, who have scored 11 goals in their last three away outings, should at least get a goal if not any points.
