GAME OVER !

The roars sound out around Borussia-Park! Gladbach have triumphed in the Rhine Derby against Cologne with something to spare. The visitors were neck and neck with the Foals until Kainz's first-half sending off. From that point on, Borussia took control and they were worthy of the three points that takes them to sixth in the standings.

THURAM ON TARGET

Thuram scores ! The Gladbach striker has had enough chances in this game to score and he finally gets a goal, connecting with Plea's centre with the outside of a boot to send the ball high into the net. Gladbach lost 5-1 last weekend. They're winning 5-2 here!

The Foals are content to roll it around here as their fans sing their appreciation. Should they see this one out, and it looks very likely they will, Daniel Farke's men will be up to sixth in the standings, level on points with Werder Bremen, who took today's hosts to town last weekend.

THURAM DENIED

Oooh, so close to four. Hofmann rifles in a cross in from the right and it looks to be on a plate for Thuram, who lets the ball run across his body and fails to make a touch. That was a big opportunity for the French forward.

HALF TIME

Take a deep breath. That was INTENSE! Borussia hit the front with a Friedrich header only for Cologne to strike back from the spot shortly afterwards, Kainz converting. The Billy-Goats' goalscorer then got himself into all sorts of bother, conceding a penalty at the other end and then being shown a second yellow card. Bensebaini subsequently put the home side back in front! It's been a Rhine Derby to remember thus far!

"NO FAVOURITES"

Here's Gladbach coach Daniel Farke on today's Rhine Derby: "On a game day like this, the table doesn't matter. It's about being hot and giving it your all to win. There are no favourites for me in a derby."

SET-PIECES KEY?

Corners might have a big role to play in today's encounter at Borussia-Park. The hosts are the No.1 team in the Bundesliga in terms of the danger they create from corners, the Foals a full 59% above the league average. Cologne, meanwhile, are the third-best team in the division when it comes to creating danger from corner kicks.

GLADBACH TEAM NEWS

Just like their opponents today, Gladbach have also named the same starting 11 to that which began on Matchday 8. In fact, this is the third game in a row in which Daniel Farke's Foals remain unchanged.

GLADBACH STARTING XI

BILLY-GOATS BOUNCING

In terms of their Bundesliga form, Cologne followed a 1-1 draw away to Bochum with last weekend's fantastic 3-2 win against Borussia Dortmund. If the visitors manage to pull off a victory here, they would go level on points with Bayern Munich and Dortmund in the top-flight standings.

WOUNDED FOALS

Gladbach were ticking along nicely under Daniel Farke, until they suffered a tonking at the hands of Werder Bremen last time out. A 5-1 reverse at the Weserstadion will have caused the Foals to wobble and how they will react today is one of the fascinating sub plots to this encounter.

WELCOME ALONG !!

We're all set for a super Bundesliga Sunday and to kick-start the action, we've got a fine footballing prospect for you: Cologne at Glaadbach in the Rhine derby. So settle in and let us deliver you all of the pre-match chatter right here.
