THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig's title hopes suffered a blow last weekend as they lost 2-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt, and defeat here could leave them as low as third
  • Klostermann resumed full training on Thursday after missing the trip to Frankfurt and should return at the back, leaving only the long-term absentees.
  • Klostermann's return would likely see coach Nagelsmann revert to a back four, while new signing Dani Olmo could be included in the squad.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Gulacsi; Mukiele, Upamecano, Klostermann, Halstenberg; Sabitzer, Laimer, Adams, Nkunku; Poulsen, Werner

Unavailable: Kampl (Injured), Konate (Injured), Orban (Injured), Matheus Cunha (International duty)

Doubtful: Klostermann (Injured)

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach came from behind to beat Mainz 3-1 at home last Saturday but they have only collected one point from their last four away league matches.
  • Coach Rose is boosted by the return from suspension of Lainer, who is set to be reinstated at right-back, but Musel, Bensebaini and Jantschke remain sidelined.
  • Neuhaus has been a substitute in the last two games but could be recalled in midfield after coming on and scoring against Mainz.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Wendt; Neuhaus, Zakaria; Herrmann, Stindl, Thuram; Plea

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

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Just two points separate these two sides at the top of the table but Leipzig go into it as favourites at home. Nagelsmann's men are unbeaten in eight games in all competitions at the Red Bull Arena, while Gladbach have struggled on their travels of late and are likely to go home empty-handed again.
