In the left-back position, captain Filip Daems is still injured and will be replaced by Oscar Wendt.
Lukas Rupp, Alexander Ring and Peniel Mlapa compete for the spot on the right wing.
Mike Hanke and Igor de Camargo are in contention for the spot alongside Patrick Hermann.
Augsburg are still last in the table and they have huge problems defensively as well as on the attack this season. They need to start getting results at home now to try to keep pace with the teams ahead of them.
Gladbach have not found consistency yet, but the team's performances have improved massively in the last few weeks. It remains to be seen how tired some players will be after another Europa League week, though.
Expect Gladbach to dominate the game from the start and Augsburg to try to hit them on the counter.
