Team News: Gladbach
Florian Neuhaus (Partial damage to the cruciate ligament), Tobias Sippel (Acromioclavicular Separation), Alassane Plea (Pulled hamstring at the adductors), Ko Itakura (Ruptured intraarticular ligament initiation in knee) and Mamadou Doucouré (Tear in a joint capsule) are unavailable for Gladbach gaffer Daniel Farke.
In our view, Gladbach could use the 4-3-3 system for this game with Yann Sommer, Joseph Scally, Marvin Friedrich, Nico Elvedi, Ramy Bensebaini, Kouadio Kone, Julian Weigl, Christoph Kramer, Jonas Hofmann, Marcus Thuram and Lars Stindl.
Team News: RB Leipzig
RB Leipzig manager Marco Rose has a number of players out of action. Lukas Klostermann (Ruptured syndesmotic ligament), Mohamed Simakan (Back trouble), Konrad Laimer (Syndesmotic ligament tear), Marcel Halstenberg (Back trouble) and Dani Olmo (Ruptured intraarticular ligament initiation in knee) are those who can’t be considered.
We reckon that Leipzig could decide to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 lineup, giving starts to Peter Gulacsi, Benjamin Henrichs, Willi Orban, Josko Gvardiol, David Raum, Kevin Kampl, Amadou Haidara, Christopher Nkunku, Emil Forsberg, Dominik Szoboszlai and Andre Silva.
In our view, Borussia Mönchengladbach must be fancied to breach the defence of this RB Leipzig side, but a single goal probably won’t prevent defeat.
Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 1-2 victory for RB Leipzig when all is said and done. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
