BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Having recorded the third-best first half of a Bundesliga season in the club's history, Borussia Monchengladbach could go top – at least overnight – with victory in Gelsenkirchen.
  • Fringe players Poulsen, Beyer and Villalba have all departed on loan but the club have not felt the need to bring in any new blood during the transfer window yet.
  • Bensebaini has been ruled out due to injury so Wendt will start at left-back, but right-back Lainer is fit again having missed the last few games before the break.

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

Unavailable: Musel (Injured), Bensebaini (Injured)
