The Bundesliga is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Borussia Monchengladbach take on TSG Hoffenheim at the Borussia Park on Saturday. Borussia Monchengladbach have not been at their best in recent weeks and will want to win this game.

TSG Hoffenheim are currently in a lowly 15th place in the Bundesliga standings and need to put together a string of victories in the coming weeks. The away side slumped to a 1-0 victory against RB Leipzig earlier this week and will want to bounce back in this fixture.

Lars Stindl spared Borrusia Monchengladbach's blushes against Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this week and the home side needs to put in a better performance over the weekend. Die Borussen are in eighth place in the Bundesliga table and will have European qualification in their sights this season.
