Eduard Löwen (Knock), Rune Jarstein (Corona virus), Dedryck Boyata (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Luca Netz (Metatarsal Fracture) will not be taking part for Hertha BSC manager Pál Dárdai. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Lucas Tousart and Vladimir Darida.
Team News: Gladbach
Gladbach boss Marco Rose has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Julio Villalba (Unknown Injury), Nico Elvedi (Knock), Torben Müsel (Unknown Injury) and Jonas Hofmann (Corona virus) won’t be making appearances.
We’re inclined to think that Hertha Berlin will need to put in a solid display to be putting a goal past this Gladbach team who will likely manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Gladbach at the end of the 90.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
