Team News: Gladbach
Denis Zakaria (Knee Injury), Alassane Plea (Tear in the abductor muscle), Fabian Johnson (Muscular problems), Marcus Thuram (Ankle Injury), Tobias Strobl (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Raffael (Foot Injury) will not be taking part for Gladbach boss Marco Rose.
In all likelihood, Gladbach will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 system, beginning the first half with Yann Sommer, Ramy Bensebaini, Matthias Ginter, Nico Elvedi, Stefan Lainer, Christoph Kramer, Florian Neuhaus, Patrick Herrmann, Jonas Hofmann, Lars Stindl and Breel Donald Embolo.
Team News: Hertha Berlin
Hertha BSC boss Bruno Labbadia has to currently contend with reduced team options. Javairô Dilrosun (Muscle Injury), Maximilian Mittelstädt (Mononucleosis), Peter Pekarik (Torn Muscle Fibre), Arne Maier (Bruised Foot), Marius Wolf (Strain), Thomas Kraft (Back trouble) and Santiago Ascacíbar (Bruised Foot) can’t be considered. Salomon Kalou is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We believe Hertha seem likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 system, settling for Rune Almenning Jarstein, Mathew Leckie, Jordan Torunarigha, Dedryck Boyata, Marvin Plattenhardt, Niklas Stark, Marko Grujic, Dodi Lukebakio, Vladimir Darida, Matheus Cunha and Krzysztof Piatek.
We’ve got the feeling that Gladbach will most probably see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities. At the same time, Hertha Berlin will be up against it to score a goal of their own although we do think that they will probably end up converting at least once here, too. Our selection here is for a decent 3-1 victory for Gladbach at the end of the match.
