Hertha Berlin will be without the suspended Valentin Stoker and the injured Sebastian Langkamp and Vladimir Darida.
Vedad Ibisevic will lead the line on his own with Salomon Kalou in support.
Borussia Monchengladbach are still missing the influential Andreas Christensen at centre back.
Ibrahima Traore is a doubt but will probably miss this game. Raffael and Thorgan Hazard are back in contention following injury.
Two sides meet here who are having contrasting season’s so far. Hertha are flying high in fifth but dropped to that position after losing to Hoffenheim last week. Monchengladbach have not won in five Bundesliga games and sit in eleventh.
Hertha have an advantage over Monchengladbach going into this game. The Foals endured a difficult night in the Champions League on Tuesday night drawing 1-1 with Celtic. They now must travel to the capital to face a team who have sights of replacing them in the top four.
Expect this game to be full of high energy with both sides looking to attack on the break. Hertha will go into the match as favorites but Monchengladbach have a good record against Hertha beating them in five of the last six meetings.
Hertha have won their last four home games in the Bundesliga.
Monchengladbach have lost two of their last four league games.
The Foals have not won a game away all season.
