Gladbach suffered a setback in their bid for a place in the UEFA Champions League next season when they were beaten by VfL Wolfsburg on Matchday 26, but the return from injury of Patrick Herrmann has lifted confidence heading into the final nine games of the season.

Frankfurt responded to their 1-1 draw at home to FC Ingolstadt 04 by relieving Armin Veh of his duties. Two-time Bundesliga champion and former Croatia head coach Niko Kovac was presented as Frankfurt's new head coach on Tuesday, with the Hessian club desperate to pull away from the bottom three before it is too late.
