Jan Schröder (Torn Muscle Fibre), Diant Ramaj (Meniscal Injury), Jesper Lindström (Hamstring Injury) and Martin Hinteregger (Hamstring Injury) will be missing for Eintracht Frankfurt boss Oliver Glasner.
It looks as if Eintracht will probably use a 3-4-2-1 formation in the match and select Kevin Trapp, Tuta, Makoto Hasebe, Evan N'Dicka, Danny da Costa, Stefan Ilsanker, Ajdin Hrustic, Timothy Chandler, Aymen Barkok, Sam Lammers and Goncalo Paciencia.
Team News: Gladbach
Due to a mostly full-strength group, there is just the one fitness issue for the Gladbach boss Adi Hütter to be concerned about. Marcus Thuram (Muscular problems) misses out for this game. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Nico Elvedi and Kouadio Koné.
From our viewpoint, Gladbach seem most likely to make use of a 3-4-2-1 formation, giving starts to Tobias Sippel, Louis Beyer, Marvin Friedrich, Ramy Bensebaini, Stefan Lainer, Jonas Hofmann, Florian Neuhaus, Luca Netz, Lars Stindl, Alassane Plea and Breel Embolo.
We believe that Borussia Mönchengladbach have enough to put a goal past this Eintracht Frankfurt lineup, however that might not quite be as many as they’ll concede.
Our tip is for a narrow 2-1 victory for Eintracht Frankfurt after 90 minutes. Looking forward to this.
