Borussia Mönchengladbach meets 1. FC Köln on Sunday – Daniel Farke apparently plans to have three new players in the starting XI against their arch-rival.
After the bitter 1: 5 bankruptcy against Werder Bremen, compensation is announced at Borussia. What would be better than a derby win against the unloved rival from Cologne?
In order to finally get a threesome against Effzeh again after three defeats in a row, head coach Farke is planning to have three new players in the starting XI, according to Bild: Alassane Plea, Stefan Lainer and Luca Netz should appear from the start compared to last week.
Stefan Lainer beckons in the derby with the first starting XI this season. Also due to injuries, the veteran right back has clearly been at a disadvantage to Scally - according to the picture, the youngster, who was shaky against Werder, is probably taking a breather. The chance for Lainer, who also seems to be exactly the right choice for an emotional match.
On the other hand, Ramy Bensebaini, who is plagued by a flu infection, is threatened with the absence. After his disastrous performance in Bremen, the bank might have threatened him one way or another – Luca Netz will replace the Algerian.
