Whilst the side won’t be too disgruntled with its 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich the last time around with the team giving a good account of itself, the fact that it was their second defeat on the bounce will perturb the team. Hindered by injuries, the team has failed to compensate for a hit to its worldclass players with the predicament leaving them with the sole win in their last five encounters.

With Wolfsburg’s biggest strength, their defence taking a hit at the moment, Borussia Monchengladbach should be able to accumulate a much needed win today. They’; just about scram their way to the three points but should manage to do so nonetheless.
