Official Fantasy Bundesliga Managers take note: bundesliga.com is on hand to provide likely line-ups as well as injury and suspension news ahead of Matchday 15.
The major news to emerge from FC Augsburg this week is that the club have parted ways with head coach Dirk Schuster. Interim coach Manuel Baum inherits a squad decimated by injuries: Caiuby, Alfred Finnbogason and Raul Bobadilla remain out. On top of their absences, midfielder Dominik Kohr was sent off in Matchday 14's 1-0 defeat at Hamburger SV and so will sit this one out. Defender Jeffrey Gouweleeuw and midfielder Ja-Cheol Koo are available again following injury, however.

Borussia Mönchengladbach coach Andre Schubert will be without Fabian Johnson this weekend, the American wide man suffering from a damaged Achilles. Captain Lars Stindl "is suffering with the flu and probably won't be able to play", but holding midfielder Christoph Kramer is available again following illness.
