Team News: Hannover
Sei Muroya (Torn ankle ligament) and Martin Hansen (Corona virus) are unavailable for Hannover boss Christoph Dabrowski.
In our view, Hannover could line up in a 4-2-3-1 system for this one with Ron-Robert Zieler, Jannik Dehm, Marcel Franke, Julian Boerner, Niklas Hult, Gael Ondoua, Mark Diemers, Cedric Teuchert, Sebastian Kerk, Linton Maina and Maximilian Beier.
Team News: Gladbach
Gladbach boss Adi Hütter has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Denis Zakaria (Strain), Jonas Hofmann (Knee Surgery), Jordan Beyer (Knee Problems) and Christoph Kramer (Cold) are not able to play.
It’s our belief that Gladbach could decide to elect for a 3-4-2-1 lineup, starting Yann Sommer, Marvin Friedrich, Nico Elvedi, Tony Jantschke, Stefan Lainer, Laszlo Benes, Kouadio Kone, Joseph Scally, Florian Neuhaus, Lars Stindl and Breel Embolo.
We feel that in this game, Hannover are likely to find the net against this Borussia Mönchengladbach team, although one goal may not quite be as many as they’ll concede.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-2 win for Borussia Mönchengladbach when all is said and done. Let’s see what eventuates.
