Date: Saturday 19th November Venue: Stadion im-Borussia Park Competition: Bundesliga KO: 14.30
Borussia Monchengladbach have Christoph Kramer absent as he was sent off last time out against Hertha Berlin.
Patrick Herrmann is also missing for The Foals but Ibrahima Traore and Raffael return.
FC Koln are without Timo Horn and Leandro Bittencourt.
Bundesliga top scorer Anthony Modeste will be partnered by Yuya Osako up front.
Both these sides are looking to bounce back from defeats on Matchday 10. Monchengladbach are currently in a slump, the worst since Andre Schubert took over as manager. Koln began the season well but their results have been inconsistent recently.
Monchengladbach usually come out on top in this fixture and will hope for a win to get their season back on track. They currently sit eleventh in the Bundesliga and are eight points off the Champions League places.
Koln have been in fine form, but a couple of dodgy results recently have meant they dropped out of the top four. Goals from Modeste will be key in this game as he has scored 11 of Koln’s 16 goals in the league this season.
Monchengladbach have won four of their last six games against Koln.
Koln have won only one away game this season and lost the last two.
Monchengladbach are unbeaten at home so far in the Bundesliga.
Monchengladbach: Sommer; Elvedi, Christensen, Vestergaard; Dahoud, Strobl; Traore, Hahn, Stindl, Hazard, Raffael
Koln: Kessler; Sorense, Mavraj, Heintz, Hector; Risse, Lehmann, Höger, Rausch; Modeste, Osako
Prediction: Monchengladbach 1-1 Koln
