Team News: VfL Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg manager Oliver Glasner has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Kevin Mbabu (Ligament Injury), Marin Pongracic (Mononucleosis), Maximilian Philipp (Muscle Injury) and William (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) can’t be considered.
We feel that over the course of the game, VfL Wolfsburg could find themselves up against it to register a score against this Gladbach side who we think should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re going for a very even contest with a 1-0 advantage for Gladbach at the end of the match.
Hoping for a good game.
