Hoffenheim : Things got totally wrong for Hoffenheim against fellow Bundesliga opposition Werder Bremen in the DFB Pokal. Ishak Belfodil’s only goal sealed the victory for the Bremen boy’s and Aue for Julian Nagelsmann’s side. But Hoffenheim are a totally different side at home in the Bundesliga, they have a 22 match unbeaten streak presently in Rhein-Neckar Arena. Will that continue against Gladbach? Situation says yes. Gladbach are defensively very poor at times and if Nagelsmann’s boys can capitalise it can turn out be easy for Hoff’s to get a win. Host of players are out injured for Hoffenheim, likes of Sandro Wagner, Serge Gnabry, Ermin Bicakcic, Adam Szalai are out. Benjamin Hubner is also out with accumulation of yellow cards.

Gladbach : This season when Gladbach are losing they are making it a memorable one. First 6-1 against Dortmund some MatchDays before and then 5-1 against Bayer Leverkusen last MatchDay. They aren’t that bad to concede this many goals, but their defense is surely not upto the mark. Things are looking to get worse on MatchDay 10 as they face a strong Hoffenheim side who were just beaten by Bremen in Pokal and are surely ready to comeback with a win at home. Though Gladbach has some hopes as Hoffenheim are in scarcity of players and Gladbach has no 1st team injury concerns to deal with too as Christoph Kramer is also back from injury and is in contention to start the game over youngster Mickael Cuisance. It remains to be seen who Gladbach boss Dieter Hecking starts in Fabian Johnson, Ibrahim Traore and Vincenzo Grifo in attacking role.

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