Eintracht

Matchday in focus: Mönchengladbach

Eintracht take on mid-table rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach in the last home game of the season.

Tactics

At the start of the campaign, Borussia Mönchengladbach operated either in a 4-2-3-1 or a 3-4-2-1 formation. However, in recent weeks head coach Adi Hütter has sent his side out in a 3-4-3, or with five at the back. Breel Embolo is in particularly fine fettle at present, the Swiss forward finding the net five times in his last six Bundesliga outings.

Absentees

Martin Hinteregger and Jesper Lindström will definitely miss out for Eintracht, while Rafael Santos Borré and Jens Petter Hauge are struggling with minor muscular complaints. Djibril Sow suffered a broken nose but could still feature wearing a protective mask.

Visitors Gladbach will be without László Bénes (torn thigh muscle), Marcus Thuram (thigh muscle strain) and Kouadio Koné and Nico Elvedi, who are both suspended. Koné was shown his tenth yellow card of the season against Leipzig on Monday, while Elvedi was sent off for a professional foul.

Mönchengladbach's goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

One to watch: Yann Sommer

Sommer has donned his goalkeeping gloves for Gladbach for almost eight years now, having replaced Marc-André ter Stegen between the posts in 2014. With 322 games under his belt for the Foals, the Switzerland international is as reliable a stopper as they come and regularly stands out thanks to his lightning-fast reflexes and good positioning.

Statistics

Eintracht and Gladbach have faced each other 104 times and the overall record could not be more evenly balanced. Both teams have won 38 times, with 28 draws, although Gladbach have a slight advantage in terms of goal difference: 165 for, 159 against.
