ADDED TIME

We're now into four minutes of time added on here in Gladbach.
90'

HUGE CHANCE!

Another chance goes begging as Rashica's shot is blocked and bounces across the Gladbach area to Bittencourt in space. He fires a left-footed shot at goal but it flies just over the crossbar. Two massive chances for Bremen, but neither find the back of the net.

OFF THE POST!

Bremen may not come closer than this to levelling the scores. Selke heads across to Osako, who does brilliantly to beat Elvedi in the air and flick the ball on to Rashica. He controls and cuts inside past one before shooting back across goal, but the ball bounces back out off Sommer, hits the goalkeeper, and he gathers the loose ball.

The home side piling on the pressure now in the Bremen half, looking to make this a two-goal advantage in the near future. Elvedi heads over from close-range having gotten onto the end of Benes's corner ahead of Plea.

ELVEDI HEADS HOME!

Gladbach go in front midway through the second half and it's Elvedi who does the trick. Benes curls in a free-kick from the left and Elvedi is alone to glance a header across goal and in off the far post, beyond the diving Pavlenka. His first of the season at the perfect time.

LITTLE TO SEPARATE THEM

The possession stats are beginning to even out, chances have come at both ends and both sides having recorded nearly identical stats for distance covered, tackles won and more. This looks like it will be a game decided by finer margins in this second half.

HARD-HITTING HALF

Lainer and Sargent have made some heavy challenges already at the start of this second half. Neither side holding anything back.

END-TO-END NOW

This is turning into a real end-to-end game now in the final minutes of the first half.
37'

BIG CHANCES!

Bremen cause confusion in the Gladbach backline again with a long ball forward bringing Sommer out of his box. He chests the ball ahead of Mbom, but it's a heavy touch which Sargent latches onto. The American is then brought down by Sommer - who is shown a yellow card - and Agu runs onto the loose ball and fires a shot at goal. Ginter, though, is on his goal-line and clears the ball away.

NOT FAR AWAY ONCE MORE

A deep cross from the left and Agu just misses Sargent in the Gladbach area, but Gebre Selassie is in behind him and does get his head to the ball. He can only send it wide of goal, though, but Bremen will be pleased with the chances they have been able to create.
30'

BRILLIANT FROM FRIEDL

Wolf is on the end of a through-ball into the Bremen box and is about to pull the trigger on his shot as Friedl steps across, clipping the ball away from him in the final seconds before his shot. Fantastic last-ditch defending from the Austrian.

HUGE CHANCE!

Wow, what a goal that would have been. Another break down the right from Bremen and Gebre Selassie's cross is cleared up into the air on the edge of the Gladbach box. Schmid meets it with a ferocious volley which is heading straight for the top corner, but Sommer produces a stunning reflex save to keep it out. Fantastic football all-round.

CHANCE ON THE BREAK!

Bremen break through the Gladbach defence with Sargent on the counter. He sends Ginter to the ground in an attempted slide tackle and turns back in the box, looking for the run of Eggestein. But Elvedi is back and in the way to clear from his own six-yard box.

WOLF IN ON GOAL!

A big chance for the winger as he exchanges a lovely one-two with Plea before being played in behind. His touch lets him down, though, as Friedl recovers to get a block on his shot and send the ball behind.
15'

STILL PROBING

Neuhaus pokes the ball through to Plea 20 yards from goal and he takes a snap-shot at goal, but this one is blocked away by the well-shaped Bremen defence. It's been one-way traffic in the opening 15 minutes but Gladbach unable to make the most of their pressure so far.

INCENTIVE FOR THE FOALS

A win tonight for Gladbach will take them level on points with Dortmund and Leverkusen (29) before the two teams occupying third and fourth place respectively face-off later this evening.

BREMEN STRUGGLES

The away side have been defending exclusively in the opening 10 minutes. Rare moments of rest-bite have come when the Bremen defence has gained possession, but those periods have not lasted long at all thus far. Backs against the wall already here.

ON TARGET

Elvedi with a free header in front of goal after getting on the end of Hofmann's free-kick into the Bremen box. He didn't get the desired connection, though, and the ball was an easy one for Pavlenka to grab.

HERE WE GO!

Kick-off!

WATCH OUT FOR LARS

Stindl is Gladbach's nine-goal top scorer so far this Bundesliga season. He has scored eight times in 18 competitive outings against Bremen, making the Green-Whites his joint-favourite opposition alongside Augsburg. He's waiting on the bench when needed tonight.

HOPE FOR WERDER?

Werder have only won one of their last 15 Bundesliga matches in Mönchengladbach - a 4-1 victory in October 2010. They did, however, post the highest away win of their Bundesliga history against the Foals - a 7-0 rout back in April 1966.

BORUSSIA OVER BREMEN

Gladbach are unbeaten in their last nine Bundesliga meetings with Werder (W6, D3). The Foals have recorded more home wins over Bremen than they have against any other Bundesliga club (30 in 51 games).

LAST SEASON: GLADBACH 3-1 BREMEN - HIGHLIGHTS

In their previous meeting at Borussia-Park, Gladbach came out two-goal winners over Bremen way back in November 2019.

GLADBACH TEAM NEWS

Stindl is on the verge of double figures for the season after netting in Stuttgart, but he is given a rest this evening by starting on the bench with Plea back in the starting line-up after getting through 30 minutes at the weekend. Fellow attacker Thuram remains suspended, however.

BREMEN TEAM NEWS

US striker Sargent has 20-year-old Schmid for company attack, looking to add to three goals he's got in all competitions, while Kosovan attacker Rashica will be keen to add to the couple of minutes he got against Augsburg following his return from a lengthy injury lay-off. Kohfeldt has confirmed, however, that left-back Augustinsson and striker Füllkrug are still sidelined through injury. Bittencourt has been promised minutes, which will come from the bench.
