Team News

  • Martin Stranzl and Roel Brouwers compete for a spot at centre-back.
  • In the left-back position, captain Filip Daems is still not 100% fit so Oscar Wendt will start.
  • Lukas Rupp and Alexander Ring compete for the spot on the right wing.
  • Mike Hanke and Igor de Camargo are in contention for the spot alongside Patrick Hermann. The latter could get his chance to start this time, after some decent performances from the bench.
  • Interim manager Köstner will have to make the first change to his starting eleven this time, with Josué suspended for one game.
  • Christian Träsch will most likely replace the Brazilian in central midfield.
  • Vaclav Pilar and Patrick Helmes remain the only injured players, allowing Wolfsburg to field an otherwise unchanged team.

Prediction

  • After a decent run of seven points from three games, Gladbach have only earned one point from their last two games and need to regain their confidence. On the attack, they have to create more chances again.
  • Wolfsburg are on a good run since the sacking of manager Magath and seem to have found a working system and a consistent starting eleven very quickly. It remains to be seen how they will do without the suspended Josué this time round.
  • Expect this to be a competitive game from the outset. Both teams need a win to climb up to the top half of the table.
