Gladbach will be looking to reduce the deficit they have with Wolfsburg to just three points, giving themselves a better chance of finishing in the top four. Their aim is to secure a spot in next season's UEFA Champions League.
Last weekend, they lost an important game against FC Koln. In what is considered a big rivalry in north-western Germany, Gladbach went down 2-1, with Elvis Rexhbecaj emerging as the hero for Koln.
Wolfsburg are sailing smoothly in the Bundesliga, and occupy third spot in the standings. With 38 points from 20 games, Wolfsburg are just three points behind second-placed RB Leipzig.
Last weekend, goals from Wout Weghorst and Ridle Baku gave Wolfsburg a well-deserved 2-0 win over Augsburg.
