Suffered first league defeat of the season during the week. Manuel Akanji and Abdou Diallo injured in the last match. Dan-Axel Zagadou also not match fit.
Unbeaten at home this season. 7 of their last 8 won in Westfalenstadion this term.
Have scored at least 2 goals in every home match this term.
Paco Alcacer got on the scoresheet during the week taking his tally to 12 for the season. Marco Reus is not far behind with 10 goals as well as 7 assists.
Have taken 12 wins and a draw from the 13 matches in which they have taken the lead in.
Have scored 24 goals of their 42 alone in the final 30 minutes of matches.
Lucien Favre has real problems at centre back. His two starters Manuel Akanji and Abdou Diallo both picked up injuries in midweek. Dan-Axel Zagadou is also not yet fit again. Right back Lukasz Piszczek is likely to start at centre back.
After a tough match in midweek there is also likely to be more rotation. Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho should both start. Mahmoud Dahoud against his former club come into the midfield for Thomas Delaney.
Have won the last 4 at home against Gladbach. The last 3 BVB have scored 4 or more on each occasion. Have won 11 of their last 12 at home to Gladbach overall.
