Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: 24th October 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: ESPRIT arena (Dusseldorf).
Borussia Monchengladbach suffered a real disaster conceding five goals in the second half of their league clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon in front of their fans.
Bouncing back in the mid-week’s DFB Pokal action will be quite a challenging task for Dieter Hecking and his men who are about to tackle the red-hot Fortuna Dusseldorf side.
The hosts are flying high in the new campaign well confounding the pre-season expectations.
Friedhelm Funkel’s men are three points clear at the top of the 2. Bundesliga standings after a remarkable streak of five wins on the trot.
Rouwen Hennings has been enjoying a spell of excellent form so far netting four goals in the league and two more in the away win at Arminia Bielefeld on the opening day of DFB Pokal.
Hennings should be able to exploit the obvious holes in Gladbach’s defensive line as Hecking’s team has allowed five or more foals twice in last four league outings.
In between devastating defeats to Dortmund and Leverkusen, The Foals picked up victories over Hannover 96 and Werder Bremen to stay in the top half of the Bundesliga standings.
