Perennial escape artists, Hamburg again require points to navigate away from the murky waters near the foot of the Bundesliga table. Though Markus Gisdol's side currently occupy the relegation play-off spot, a more comfortable perch will surely be within reach if they can repeat last weekend's win over Hertha Berlin, their third victory in a five-game series in which they have been beaten just once.

However, having triumphed in the duo's DFB Cup quarter-final 2-1 in Hamburg less than two weeks ago, in-form Gladbach will be confident of securing a third successive league win that will fuel their charge for a top-six finish under new boss Dieter Hecking.
