Team News

  • Marco Kurz will make his debut as Hoffenheim manager and most likely start with a 4-2-3-1.
  • Captain and goalkeeper Tim Wiese returns in goal to replace Koen Casteels.
  • Marvin Compper has been injured in the winter break and could be replaced by Jannik Vestergaard.
  • Eren Derdiyok and Joselu compete for the spot up front.
  • Álvaro Domínguez returns from suspension to replace Roel Brouwers.
  • In defensive midfield, Thorben Marx will start ahead of Granit Xhaka.
  • Lukas Rupp and Tolga Cigerci compete for the spot on the left wing.
  • Luuk de Jong returns from injury to replace Mike Hanke up front.

Prediction

  • Hoffenheim lost their last six games in front of the winter break and new manager Kurz needs to turn things around now. A result at home against Gladbach would be a great debut.
  • Gladbach finally found their form in November and December and need to continue to improve now. Manager Favre has no new injury concerns and can field his best team.
  • Expect this to be a very close game. If Hoffenheim have regained confidence, they have a chance to get a draw here.
