Borussia Monchengladbach have one point more than Schalke and their main goal is to keep the distance and finish in the Top 4 at the end of the season. Visitors are playing good upfront their supporters and they are one of the best home teams in Bundesliga, but their away performance is not at the high level. They have managed to win only three matches away from home. The match against Schalke is very important for them, maybe one of the crucial, in their fight to keep the 4th position and they will do their best in order to avoid defeat. Borussia scored many goals, but on the other side their defence is very shaky and they are conceding many goals. They also have problems with absences and for this game they will be without 5 defenders. True, they are not all important, but it could cause many problems for them.
