- Only one win in ten Bundesliga outings for Gladbach.
- Two wins in 14 for the Wolves.
- In their past five league meetings, the home side has claimed victory.
After a dismal run of five defeats and three draws between Matchdays 6 and 13, bookended by heavy losses at FC Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund, Gladbach must have felt they had finally turned a corner with their recent victory over 1. FSV Mainz 05. However, another defeat followed, to FC Augsburg, and the Foals now find themselves only four points above the relegation zone. All four of their wins this season have come at BORUSSIA-PARK, and a fifth on Tuesday would certainly be welcome heading into the winter break.
Wolfsburg, meanwhile, are hovering just a point above 16th place. However, they did notch up a confidence-boosting win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, thanks to Jeffrey Bruma's first goal for the club. That was a first victory for head coach Valerien Ismael since being being appointed in the role full-time. With the news that promising Dutch youngster Riechedly Bazoer will join their ranks in January, the Wolves should have a renewed spring in their step as they travel to Mönchengladbach.
- Gladbach have suffered seven losses already this term, which is one more than the whole of the first half of last season.
- Despite their first home win of the campaign last time out against Frankfurt, Wolfsburg’s 13 points is still their worst-ever return from 15 games.
- Gladbach have lost just one of their eight home games this season.
- Eight of the Wolves’ 13 points this term have come away from home.
- Wolfsburg are without a win from their last six visits to Mönchengladbach (two draws, four losses).
- These teams’ top scorers have just three goals each this season (Raffael, Lars Stindl, Thorgan Hazard and Mario Gomez).
