THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach were knocked off top spot at the weekend as they lost 2-1 at Wolfsburg, but they are yet to lose two league games in a row this term.
  • Right-back Lainer will be assessed after being forced off against Wolfsburg, so youngster Beyer could make his first league start of the season.
  • Midfielder Zakaria returns from suspension and Wendt, Stindl and Kramer could also be rotated back into the starting line-up by coach Rose.

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

Unavailable: Musel (Injured), Poulsen (Injured)

Doubtful: Lainer (Injured)

PADERBORN

  • Paderborn returned to the foot of the table following their 1-1 draw at home to Union Berlin on Saturday, but they have gone two games unbeaten for the first time this season.
  • Coach Baumgart has hinted that Drager and Holtmann may be recalled to the starting line-up having been on the bench in recent weeks, but no other changes are expected.
  • Ritter remains a doubt and fellow midfielder Kapic missed Saturday's match because of illness, but neither of them are regular starters anyway.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Zingerle; Drager, Kilian, Schonlau, Collins; Proger, Gjasula, Vasiliadis, Holtmann; Zolinski, Mamba

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Ritter (Injured), Kapic (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Despite their lowly standing, Paderborn have proven to be tricky opposition for many of the top sides this season. Gladbach are in excellent form at home but they have only managed one clean sheet at BORUSSIA-PARK since January, so the visitors should get chances to score.
