Mönchengladbach - Without a point and a permanent coach following Lucien Favre's resignation, Borussia Mönchengladbach are in urgent need of a pick-me-up against FC Augsburg at the Borussia Park on Wednesday evening (kick off 20:00 CEST/18:00 GMT).
- Mönchengladbach are without a point from their first five games of a Bundesliga season for the first time in the club's history.Should Gladbach lose to Augsburg, they would equal the Bundesliga record set by Fortuna Düsseldorf in 1991/92, who lost the opening six matches. VfB Stuttgart could do likewise as they head to Hannover.Gladbach have conceded 12 goals already, two more than they let in in the whole of the second half of last season.The Foals failed to take a single point off Augsburg last season, and have lost four times to the Bavarian club since the latter entered the Bundesliga, more than against any other club.In last season's so-called 'English weeks', Mönchengladbach had the best record of any club. They registered three wins with a 6-1 goal difference.Following Lucien Favre's resignation, Augsburg boss Markus Weinzierl is now the Bundesliga's longest-serving coach.Gladbach appointed U23 coach and former FC St. Pauli Hamburg boss Andre Schubert as interim coach on Monday.Augsburg's Ragnar Klavan could feature in his 100th Bundesliga game.
