Foals finding their way in season of transition

Gladbach - After defying the odds last season to finish in the top four, five-time Bundesliga champions Borussia Mönchengladbach have struggled to recreate the form that saw them labelled the Bundesliga's surprise package.

The departures of three influential squad members in Dante, Roman Neustädter and Marco Reus saw the Foals suffer somewhat of an identity crisis at the start of the season. However, head coach Lucien Favre looks to have steadied the ship and, though they currently sit eight points off of where they were at the halfway stage of the previous campaign, a European place is not beyond this talented, well-organised outfit.
