HWANG HEADS WIDE

A long ball forward is headed down by Sorloth, and Hwang is perfectly placed to flick it at goal but he miscues his effort and sends the ball wide. Time running out for a Leipzig equaliser here.

LEIPZIG BUILDING

The away side are working to create chances here but Gladbach's defence remains strong despite having just one out-and-out centre-back on the pitch. With Thuram on the pitch, the Foals' counter-attack will also come further into play in these late stages.
73'

FRESHER LEGS

Thuram and Kramer both worked their socks off against Real Madrid in midweek, and will look to make a difference in the final 15 minutes or so here.

OFF THE POST!

Wow, what a counter-attack. Gladbach power forward down the right and Lainer's cutback to the edge of the penalty area is met by Plea who smashes a shot at goal. He has to watch as it cannons back out off the post with Gulacsi not close to saving it. What an effort that was.
66'

SABITZER SO CLOSE!

Moments before those substitutions, Sabitzer came within inches of levelling the scores. His left-footed curler from the edge of the Gladbach box had Sommer flat-footed, but just missed the target leaving him with his head in his hands.

WHAT A MOMENT FOR WOLF

Against his parent club, Wolf scores his first goal for Gladbach. Yes, that's right. Wolf is on loan at Gladbach this season from Leipzig and is allowed to face his parent club this evening, and has ended up scoring against them.

KAMPL TAKES YELLOW

The Leipzig midfielder has made a few fouls today, and takes his caution for a foul on Embolo here.

A FIRST FOAL GOAL FOR WOLF!

It's Hannes Wolf with the breakthrough! Bensebaini does really well to spot Plea in a bit of space on the left side of Leipzig's penalty area. He plays the ball into the box on the ground and Orban blocks, but the rebound falls to Wolf and he curls a first-time shot beautifully beyond Gulacsi's reach.

LEIPZIG WORKING FORWARD

Sabitzer curls in a cross from the right using his left foot, with Sorloth and Poulsen to aim for in the box. Sorloth is closest to this one, but can only get a feather of a touch on the ball with his header and sends it wide.
56'

NEUHAUS CAUTIONED

The Gladbach midfielder doesn't allow a Leipzig free-kick to be taken quickly and he's booked.

EARLY CHANCE!

A mistake in the Leipzig backline as Upamecano loses possession, and Hofmann latches onto it. He speeds forward and plays across to Plea to his left who shoots first-time. It's straight at Gulacsi, much to his disappointment, and the chance goes begging.
46'

PLEA! OFFISDE...

The Frenchman slots home from Herrmann's flick on but he's just offside when the ball came his way. That would've been the perfect end to the first half for Gladbach.
40'

APPROACHING THE BREAK

Leipzig have had the better of the play here in the first half, with Gladbach struggling to create goal-scoring opportunities despite their attacking numbers on the pitch.
37'

CHANCES GOING TO WASTE

Leipzig break on the counter with Samardzic intercepting from Hofmann. It's a four-on-three in their favour, as Olmo takes possession on the right side of Gladbach's penalty area but sees his shot blocked by the home defence.
33'

INTERESTING TACTIC

Without the ball, Poulsen is out on the right flank for Leipzig with Olmo up front alongside Sorloth to press. An interesting move from Nagelsmann to get strength on the far side against Bensebaini.

CLOSE AGAIN!

Sorloth is enjoying himself here as he draws Elvedi to him and then skips past him in midfield, racing to the Gladbach box. He plays the ball across goal and Poulsen is just inches from tapping it home past Sommer. Leipzig getting closer and closer to the opener.
20'

ROSE CALLING FOR MORE

The Gladbach coach is down on the touchline applauding his side's efforts, and calling for more of the same from them. Leipzig have come closest to opening the scoring here but it's been an even contest overall in the opening 20 minutes.

PRESS, PRESS, PRESS!

That's the order of the day for both sides in the Borussia-Park. It's making for fascinating viewing as both teams look to break through the other's pressing game. Sorloth and Poulsen have done it well so far for Leipzig with some tidy combination play.
10'

LOVELY LEIPZIG

Poulsen and Sorloth working beautifully here early on. The Dane sends the Norwegian down the right flank and heading for the Gladbach box. Sorloth returns the favour, finding Poulsen in front of goal, and his shot forces a save from Sommer.

ATTACKING FROM DEEP

With Neuhaus and Hofmann in central midfield, Gladbach's team is an attacking one even with Thuram waiting on the bench. Be sure that the Foals will be pushing the ball forward with every opportunity.

FIRST GO AT GOAL!

Sorloth lays the ball off for Poulsen outside the Leipzig box, but his shot curls wide of the mark.

KICK-OFF COMING UP!

Both sides have made changes following exhausting Champions League outings in midweek, but this one should be a cracker. Settle in for the fun with just a few minutes to go before kick-off.

GLADBACH'S SPECIAL KIT

The home side will be sporting a special shirt today, celebrating the club's 120th birthday.

HOFMANN THE HOPE FOR THE HOSTS

Hofmann has been Gladbach's most potent attacking force this season with a hand in nine goals in seven games in all competitions (four goals, five assists) - one every 73 minutes.

HOME FORTRESS

Gladbach are unbeaten in their last five home matches in the Bundesliga, dating back to last season.

LEIPZIG'S FOALING FUN

Leipzig have never lost to Gladbach (W5, D3), and are unbeaten in their nine away matches in the Bundesliga (W6, D3). Ten would be a new club record.
