RB Leipzig's blistering form will be a cause for concern for a visiting Borussia Mönchengladbach side with a questionable away record of late (kick-off 20:00 CEST/18:00 GMT).
Promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time last May, Leipzig have already accounted for Borussia Dortmund and produced their biggest away win to date with Saturday's 4-0 victory against Hamburger SV. Boasting nine wins in their last eleven games at home, Ralph Hasenhüttl's team now represent formidable top-flight opponents.
Die Fohlen – along with their talismanic midfielder Thorgan Hazard – are also riding high after a 4-1 weekend triumph against Werder Bremen. However, it is Mönchengladbach's away form – just one win in 12 on their travels - that is the biggest thorn in coach André Schubert's side when they take on the Bundesliga's second-youngest team at the Red Bull Arena.
