Mönchengladbach – Andre Schubert became the first Borussia Mönchengladbach head coach to win his first two games at the helm since Wolf Werner in 1987, but no new man in charge has won his first three and the Foals will be hoping to change that at home to VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday (kick-off 15:30 CEST/13:30 GMT).
