Borussia Monchengladbach play hosts to league leaders Bayern Munich as the Bavarians look to continue their resurgence under Jupp Heynckes.
The league leaders started the season under unfamiliar circumstances with consecutive bad results eventually losing Carlo Ancelotti his job.
Bayern board cited poor team harmony as a reason for the Italian’s departure. There are surely no concerns of unity now as the helm now goes to the former treble winning manager for Bayern.
The 2013 Champions League winners are on a blistering form under Jupp, with nine consecutive wins in all competitions.
Meanwhile, The hosts started off the season with just a win in their first four games but have done well to recover since, as they stand fourth in the league table.
Gladback forward Raul Bobadilla is on his way to full recovery after getting some minutes under his belt against Ajax on Tuesday.
Besides the Paraguayan, there are no returnees for the home side, with both winger Ibrahimo Traore and Jonas Hofmann out through injuries.
Moreover, Bayern have few concerns of their own with duo Thiago and Arjen Robben both ruled out, while David Alaba (back), Kingsley Coman (foot) and Rafinha (ankle) remain doubts.
The German coach confirmed James Rodriguez will start at Borussia-Park. Moreover, Javi Martinez and Corentin Tolisso will join James as Heynckes bids to make it 10 out of 10.
Monchengladbach: Sommer – Elvedi, Ginter, Vestergaard, Wendt – Hazard, Kramer, Zakaria, Johnson – Stindl (c), Raffael
Bayern: Ulreich – Kimmich, Süle, Hummels (c), Bernat – Martinez, Rudy – Tolisso, Vidal, James – Lewandowski
