Arminia Bielefeld boss Frank Kramer has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Sebastian Vasiliadis (Fitness) and Edimilson Fernandes (Influenza) won’t be making appearances.
When taking all factors into account, Borussia Mönchengladbach will, in all likelihood, see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
