Team News

  • Thorben Marx should return to the side having missed the game with Leverkusen through injury to replace Alexander Ring.
  • Tony Jantschke will also come into the starting XI, potentially at the expense of Brouwers, having missed the weekend's game due to a suspension.
  • Loanee Tolga Cigerci should continue to get the nod over Ring and Rupp on the right, with Patrick Hermann supporting Luuk de Jong up front.
  • With Miroslav Klose sidelined Sergio Floccari will continue to lead the line for the visitors.
  • Senad Lulic should return to start on the left wing in place of Stefano Mauri, who is a doubt with an ankle problem.
  • At the back, Petkovic must decide whether to field his usual pairing of Biava and Dias or rest one of them, having played Ciani for much of the Europa League campaign.


  • Although Gladbach have failed to match their exploits from last season they have recovered from a disappointing start to remain in contention for another Europa league berth next year.
  • Lazio, on the other hand, are hoping to be playing a level up in the Champions League next season despite a blip in Serie A since the turn of the year, with Klose's absence a big blow.
  • The visitors are still the stronger side on paper and will have less to worry about as they don't play again until Monday, while Gladbach have an afternoon kick-off on Saturday to contend with.
