Kick-Off at 19.30 UK
Venue: Borussia Park, Moenchengladbach.

There will be fireworks when Borussia M’gladbach and Bayern Munchen face each other in the Bundesliga derby on Matchday 15.

Die Fohlen did well to beat Arminia Bielefeld at the weekend thanks to Breel Embolo’s goal, with the team putting an end to their four-game winless run.

Borussia aim to move a little closer to the Champions League berth, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Friday’s derby.

Marcus Thuram remains on the sidelines through suspension for the hosts, and, in his absence, a man to watch in the home team will be experienced midfielder Lars Stindl, who has netted eight goals so far this season.

The Bavarians, on the other hand, came from two goals behind to crush Mainz 5-2 in their last league match.

Since Bayern Munchen are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, both teams to score betting option should be considered.

Fringe players Rocco Reitz, Torben Musel, Famana Quizera and Jan Olschowsky are also ruled out of action for the hosts.
