THE TEAM NEWS

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg finished off the Europa League group stage with a 1-0 win at home to Saint-Etienne on Thursday but they have lost four of their last five Bundesliga matches.
  • Coach Glasner virtually fielded a reserve team in midweek, resting key players such as Roussillon, Guilavogui and Weghorst ahead of three games in the space of seven days.
  • Goalkeeper Casteels is expected to be fit after sitting out Thursday's game with a knock, but Mehmedi is a doubt and Tisserand is suspended after collecting his fifth booking last weekend.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Casteels; Knoche, Bruma, Brooks; William, Arnold, Guilavogui, Roussillon; Steffen, Weghorst, Joao Victor

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), Tisserand (Suspended)

Doubtful: Azzoui (Injured), Mehmedi (Injured)

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach are out of the Europa League following their 2-1 loss at home to Istanbul Basaksehir on Thursday, so their focus will now be on maintaining their position at the top of the Bundesliga.
  • Midfielder Zakaria, who has started every game bar one this season, is suspended after picking up his fifth caution of the campaign, so Kramer is set to be recalled.
  • Otherwise coach Rose has no major personnel issues, and Bensebaini is sure to retain the left-back berth after netting both goals in the win over Bayern Munich last Saturday.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Sommer; Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini; Benes, Kramer, Hofmann; Herrmann, Plea, Thuram

Unavailable: Musel (Injured), Poulsen (Injured), Zakaria (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Leaders Monchengladbach have won nine of their last 11 Bundesliga matches and will be confident of picking up another three points against Wolfsburg. The Foals have only recorded one clean sheet in their last 16 league games at home, though, so a clean sheet looks less likely for the hosts.
