Team News: Darmstadt
The Darmstadt boss Torsten Lieberknecht will be happy not to have any fitness concerns at all coming into this game with a completely healthy squad available to select from.
It looks as if Darmstadt may well make use of the 3-5-2 formation this time, beginning the first half with Marcel Schuhen, Christoph Klarer, Klaus Gjasula, Matej Maglica, Matthias Bader, Marvin Mehlem, Fabian Holland, Tobias Kempe, Emir Karic, Luca Pfeiffer and Tim Skarke.
Team News: Gladbach
Gladbach boss Gerardo Seoane has not got a full squad to pick from. Luca Netz (Thigh Problems), Stefan Lainer (cancer) and Jonas Omlin (Shoulder Injury) miss out here.
We’re of the thinking that Gladbach might elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation with a starting lineup of Moritz Nicolas, Joseph Scally, Marvin Friedrich, Ko Itakura, Maximilian Woeber, Julian Weigl, Rocco Reitz, Franck Honorat, Alassane Plea, Nathan N'Goumou and Jordan Pefok.
We feel that over the course of the game, Darmstadt will have to play well to get anything against this Borussia Mönchengladbach side who we think will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’ve gone for a 0-1 winning margin for Borussia Mönchengladbach at the end of this one.
There should be little in it.
