Borussia Mönchengladbach will be without midfielder Christoph Kramer against VfL Wolfsburg. The FIFA World Cup winner damaged ankle ligaments in the 1-0 defeat at FC Augsburg last time out and is not expected to return until the start of the Rückrunde. There is some positive news for embattled Gladbach coach Andre Schubert, however: club captain Lars Stindl is expected to be fit for this one after shaking off the flu. Tony Jantschke is also expected to return after a minor muscle tear.
