Team News

  • Roel Brouwers could replace Martin Stranzl, who has the flu.
  • In defensive midfield, Thorben Marx will start ahead of Granit Xhaka again.
  • Lukas Rupp and Tolga Cigerci compete for the spot on the right wing.
  • Luuk de Jong will start ahead of Mike Hanke up front.
  • New signing Martin Latka could make his debut at centre-back.
  • Tobias Levels and Leon Balogun compete for the spot at right-back.
  • Robert Tesche could make his Düsseldorf debut in central midfield.
  • Up front, manager Meier has several options, but Robbie Kruse should be top of the pecking order at the moment.

Prediction

  • Gladbach have finally found stability, but they need to decide home games in their favour earlier on then they have been. The team wants to compete for European places again.
  • Düsseldorf lost against Augsburg last weekend and they need to work on their defensive organisation again.
  • Expect this to be an intense game, given the proximity of the two cities. Gladbach should be favourites at home.
