Eintracht Frankfurt: The expected line-up against Gladbach

Eintracht Frankfurt is challenged in the top game (kick-off 6:30 p.m.) against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday evening. After the 5-1 thrashing of Bayer Leverkusen and the 2-0 cup win at Stuttgarter Kickers during the week, head coach Oliver Glasner is confident ahead of the away game.

"We're traveling to Mönchengladbach with a good feeling. The team is in good shape," praised the trainer at the press conference on Friday afternoon. We also have good memories of Borussia Park from the previous season. "If we win again 3-2, we'll go home happy," said the Austrian, who released his team on Thursday. "We are in a phase where less is sometimes more," said the Eintracht coach. "Physically, the boys are all highly professional, hungry and obsessed with success. It's important to keep up the greed for victories. Because now it's what counts!"

With Borussia waiting on Saturday evening a very strong game and attacking team. "Despite the 2-1 defeat in Darmstadt, Gladbach is a team with great playing quality and a lot of power, but also conceded a few goals," explained the ex-professional. "With Daniel Farke we also have a very good coach." Glasner expects a "rather open game in Mönchengladbach, in which both teams will play forward".

Makoto Hasebe (torn knee ligament), Ansgar Knauff (thigh fascial injury) and Aurelio Buta (rehabilitation training after a knee injury) are currently on the list of SBU absences. "With Ansgar, I have hope that he will return this year," said Glasner. "We and he are doing everything to ensure that he returns in the last Bundesliga week in November, when we have three Bundesliga games."

TW: Kevin Trapp - The national keeper is between the posts as usual. IV: Tuta - The Brazilian will be suspended in the upcoming Champions League group game. Substitute Hrvoje Smolcic has already gained match practice in the DFB Cup and will therefore probably not be in the starting XI against Gladbach.IV: Kristijan Jakic - Jakic is expected in the center of the three-man chain.IV: Evan N'Dicka - the central defender was in the DFB- Cup rested and returns to the starting XI on Saturday evening.RM: Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe - Glasner should again call up the new signing from Paris in right midfield.ZM: Daichi Kamada - After his brief stint in the cup, the Japanese will probably be part of the starting XI again . It is conceivable that captain Sebastian Rode will have to make room for Kamada.ZM: Djibril Sow - "With the exception of Djibril Sow and Jesper Lindstrom, nobody actually plays more than three games in a row," explained Glasner.LM: Christopher Lenz - Standing for the left wing Lenz and Luca Pellegrini to choose from.OM: Jesper Lindström - In addition to N'Dicka, the Danish international also received a break in the cup.OM: Mario Götze - The world champion of 2014 should start half-left again. Instead of Götze, however, Kamada could also start.MS: Randal Kolo Muani - With his fourth goal of the season, the attacker put Eintracht on the road to victory in Stuttgart.

Against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Glasner will probably field his team again in the 3-4-2-1 system.
