Team News

Gladbach : The Foals are doing quite well this time around in the Bundesliga, 14 points from 8 matches they gathered scoring 12 goals and are just 5 points behind League leaders Borussia Dortmund and 3 points behind 2nd placed Bayern Munich. Yes they conceded 12 goals but they alone conceded 6 goals in one match only (against Dortmund) so if we exclude that, Gladbach have been doing quite well defensively too. It remains to be seen if they can continue that against scoring side Die Werkshelf. Christoph Kramer remains as a doubt for the fixture as he had to end training early yesterday and also went to the doctor. 18-year-old Mickael Cuisance may deputise for Kramer.

Possible line up – Gladbach (4-2-2-2) : Sommer; Elvedi, Ginter, Vestergaard, Wendt; Zakaria, Cuisance; Hazard, Johnson; Stindl, Raffael.

Leverkusen : Well atleast they are scoring plenty of goals, Bayer Leverkusen placed in 12 position with 9 points from 8 MatchDays. The goals are coming for them so nobody can blame their attack as they scored 15 goals so far but defensively they aren’t doing well, 13 goals they conceded. Last MatchDay Leverkusen were held to a 2-2 draw at home by Wolfsburg, these things will surely not help Leverkusen improve their position. Leverkusen’s job just got tough now as they face high flying Borussia Monchengladbach on the road in MatchDay 9. Heiko Herrlich will be having some injury woes to deal as he will be without Lars Bender and Tin Jedvaj for the clash.

Possible line up – Leverkusen (4-2-3-1) : Leno; Retsos, Tah, Sven Bender, Wendell; Aranguiz, Kohr; Bellarbi, Brandt, Volland; Alario.
