Team News

  • Manager Wiesinger is not expected to make any changes to the back four.
  • Hiroshi Kiyotake, Robert Mak and Alexander Esswein compete for a spot in the starting eleven.
  • New signing Mu Kanazaki will probably make his debut, coming off the bench.
  • Martin Stranzl returns from a heavy flu to replace Roel Brouwers at centre-back.
  • In defensive midfield, Thorben Marx will start ahead of Granit Xhaka again.
  • Luuk de Jong will most likely start ahead of Mike Hanke up front.

Prediction

  • Nürnberg lost at Dortmund last weekend and the team needs to regain confidence now in order to avoid slipping into the relegation battle in the next few weeks.
  • Gladbach have turned things around in the last few months after a poor start to the season. The European places are in sight if they continue to perform well as a team.
  • Expect this to be competitive game from the outset.
