Lovely play between Kalajdzic and Castro to send the captain through, but his shot is blocked on its way to goal by Ginter's challenge and Sommer can grab that one.

PLEA NOT FAR AWAY

Two goals in the space of three second half minutes and we're set for a thrilling finale here in Stuttgart between these two sides.
61'

ZAKARIA FOR THE LEAD!

What a goal this is from Gladbach. Moments after the change and it's Stindl who plays Zakaria in behind the Stuttgart defence. He speeds beyond the home side's defence before slotting the ball past Kobel across goal. A stunning finish from the Switzerland internaitonal.

GONZALEZ LEVELS THE SCORES!

He's been the bright spark for Stuttgart in attack all night and now he gets his goal. Gonzalez finishes what he starts as he finds Sosa in space on the left before charging into the box. Sosa spots his run and his perfect cross is met by Gonzalez's diving header past Sommer, the 3,000th Stuttgart goal in the Bundesliga.

STUTTGART STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BLOCKS

The home side starting well here and putting on some early pressure around the Gladbach. Castro hits a cross from just inside the Gladbach area on the left like a shot, and it hits Elvedi before reaching Sommer just in front of his own goal.

STINDL'S SEASON

The Gladbach captain has now scored as many goals this season as he did in the whole of last season, when he made 25 appearances. It's been a fantastic first half of 2020/21 for Stindl.
38'

GONZALEZ CLOSE AGAIN

A training-ground variant from the free-kick as the ball is lobbed into the path of Gonzalez on the run into the Gladbach area from Castro. He controls on the turn, but Sommer is off his line to grab the second ball ahead of him.

GLADBACH PENALTY!

Sosa brings down Lainer as he raced onto Stindl's through-ball and Gladbach have a spot-kick.

GONZALEZ NOT FAR AWAY!

The best chance of the game comes to the home side, with their South-Americans combining. Sosa curls a sumptuous cross into the Gladbach area from the left which Gonzalez rises to meet at the back post but he can't angle the ball down with his header.

TACTICAL TUSSLE

Similar styles of play are cancelling each other out so far. It's been difficult for either side to open up the game and space across the pitch. Hofmann and Castro, two creative links in midfield, have been quiet so far as well.
23'

BOTH LOOKING FOR CONTROL

Stuttgart and Gladbach both looking to be in control of the ball in this game. Long balls have been forced due to solid defensive structures at either end of the pitch, too. Embolo holding up the play for Gladbach while Stuttgart have been searching for Silas and Sosa has outlets on either flank.
18'

NEUHAUS HAS A GO

A shot which stings the palms of Kobel in the Stuttgart goal. Neuhaus' drive from 20 yards is straight at the German goalkeeper, though.

NOW GLADBACH'S TURN!

A chance opens up for Embolo in front of the Stuttgart goal as he slides past Anton, and he takes it quickly with a snap-shot which forces Kobel into action low to his right. Both goalkeepers making solid saves early on.

FIRST CHANCES!

Gonzalez races past Elvedi down the right and finds Castro, who in turn lays the ball to Mangala on the edge of his shot forces a save from Sommer.

TRICKERY FROM SILAS

Some ridiculous moves on show from the two-time Rookie of the Month winner, Silas. He stands up against Bensebaini before dribbling forward and switching feet to push the ball past the defender in a motion that would daze most. He's playing with real confidence right now.
9'

BATTLE IS ON

Embolo loves to latch onto long balls over the top of defences, using his pace and strength to beat defenders to the ball. He'll have an entertaining battle against Anton in the Stuttgart defence tonight, with Stenzel and Kempf in support.

NEW PITCH

We're playing on a new pitch tonight in Stuttgart, which has come from just outside Mönchengladbach, incredibly enough. Hoping to provide Stuttgart - a passing team themselves - with more chances to play their slick football in the comfort of home.

4-3-3 FOR THE FOALS

Having started on the right flank against Bayern, Zakaria is now playing centrally here. Stindl is leading the line, with Embolo to the left and Hofmann to the right.

Kick-off!

MATARAZZO EXCITED

Speaking to Sky in Germany before the game, Stuttgart head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo says he has the feeling of a Champions League game tonight. "We're in the late game, under the lights, against a great team and on a new pitch here in Stuttgart - we're buzzing for this game."

50 UP FOR ROSE

Rose will take charge of his 50th Bundesliga match. He has the highest win percentage of any Gladbach coach to have coached so many games (53 percent - 26 wins, 11 draws, 12 defeats).

INCENTIVE FOR SILAS?

Stuttgart's eight-goal top scorer Silas has scored just once at home in the Bundesliga, on the opening weekend of the season against Freiburg. The next goal Stuttgart score, however, will be their 3,000th in the German top-flight.

EMBOLO EXCLUSIVE

bundesliga.com also sat down with Gladbach's Breel Embolo this week to discuss life at Borussia Mönchengladbach, Marco Rose and his Cameroon roots.

SILAS EXCLUSIVE

Stuttgart's Silas Wamangituka sat down with bundesliga.com this week to discuss his first season in the Bundesliga, player for Pellegrino Matarazzo and his idol, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

GROUNDHOG DAY FOR GLADBACH?

Gladbach have suffered 1-0 defeats in each of their last three trips to Stuttgart.

TALE OF THE TAPE

A win for Stuttgart (10th) would take them above Gladbach in the table (7th). Stuttgart have the best away record in the Bundesliga, but for the first time in the club's history, they have gone seven games at home without a win in the Bundesliga. Die Schwaben have also yet to celebrate a clean sheet at home.

STUTTGART TEAM NEWS

Stenzel, Sosa, Klimowicz and Gonzalez have all rotated into the team and performed superbly, with Pellegrino Matarazzo unwilling to tinker with his line-up too much. Coulibaly, Didavi and Kaladzjic are among those pushing for inclusion from the bench, however.

GLADBACH TEAM NEWS

Hofmann was the inspiration behind Gladbach's win over Bayern last weekend with his pair of goals and assist for Neuhaus, and the Germany midfielder once again supports Embolo, with Plea struggling to shake off a recent muscular complaint. Thuram is still suspended while Zakaria, employed as an extra midfielder last time out, keeps his place in an unusually attacking role ahead of Herrmann or Wolf.
