The home fans rise to applaud their team, who have won this encounter thanks to goals in either half from Ngoumou and Thuram. Wolfsburg started brightly but couldn't take advantage of their early threat. The Foals rallied and looked comfortable once they went ahead.
Friedrich and Netz will step out in Gladbach colours for the last few minutes of this encounter.
We'll have a further four minutes tacked onto the end of this one.
A word too for Alassane Plea, whose assist today takes him onto nine for the season. He joins Jamal Musiala on the same number and has only Dortmund's Raphael Guerreiro and Randal Kolo Muani of Eintracht Frankfurt ahead in the charts.
Reining them in
Guilavogui comes on to make his 200th Bundesliga appearance.
Scally down and out
Joe Scally limps out of this game with what appears to be a left thigh injury. Stefan Lainer comes on for the hosts.
Thuram's lucky 13
Marcus Thuram has now registered 13 Bundesliga goals this season and trails only Niclas Füllkrug  in the top scorer charts. It was the first time this season that the France international scored with a header.

Marmoush and out
Marmoush fires wide when well placed and that's the last of his game. The Egyptian is hooked with Jonas Wind sent on by Kovac.
Ngoumou - who was making his fourth Bundesliga start today - is heading off to deserved applause. A goal and involved in his team's second represents a fine showing for the Toulouse native. Hannes Wolf is on with Jonas Hofmann as part of a double swap.
Super build up from Gladbach, who are flying now. Thuram taps back to Neuheus who drives just wide.
Gladbach double up
Ngoumou flights a cross in from the right where Plea awaits. A nod across the face is met by Thuram who scores with ease. Simple, but very effective from the Foals.
USMNT international Kevin Paredes is on for Wolfsburg and is joined in the action by Luca Waldschmidt as coach Niko Kovac rings the changes.
Stindl tumbles under the challenge from Micky van de Ven. The Gladbach man wants a corner, the assistant has other ideas.
Next goal in this one could be crucial.
Wolfsburg more likely
Lacroix drags Thuram down as the Gladbach man was making his way into the area. Yellow card for Lacroix. The resulting free kick is played to Stindl, who swipes at air. Chance gone.
Wolves go close
Svanberg receives the ball on the right and he's got time and space to shoot, which he does. Omlin makes a big save to maintain Gladbach's lead.
Away we go again
Wolfsburg kick off the second half at Borussia-Park ...
Wolfsburg bossed this contest for the first 25 minutes and even had a goal disallowed. However, that loose pass from Casteels which led to Ngoumou's opener has given this game a wholly different feel.
Gladbach are alive now. Thuram darts a header at goal but Casteels can make the save.
Casteels plays a pass along the floor to nobody in particular. Gladbach pounce and the ball is worked to Thuram, who feeds Ngoumou. The 23-year-old fires a fine effort into the corner and the hosts lead. That's Ngoumou's first goal for the Foals.
Set piece wasted
Maxi Arnold fells Neuhaus on the edge of the area and Gladbach have a free kick. Stindl places the ball, steps back, and smacks it into the wall.
Shot count on the rise
Bensebaini to the rescue
Fischer swipes a shot from distance at the target and it might have had promise but for Bensebaini's crucial, headed block.
Plea has a go
Plea finally gets a shot away for Gladbach. The effort is tame, and low, and Casteels gathers easily.
Again Wolfsburg come
Kaminski's fine, searching pass to the back stick is met by Svanberg, who leaps and heads the ball back across the face of goal. Nobody there for Wolfsburg.
Gladbach's slow start
Gladbach are edging the possession stats but the Wolves have looked the far more threatening side until now. Daniel Farke is looking slightly concerned on the sidelines.
Ko Itakura Felix Nmecha
Goal chalked off
Felix Nmecha snaffles possession, strides forward and plays in Marmoush, who takes the pass in his stride before firing into the back of the net. A VAR check reveals Marmoush was just offside there .
Wolves on the prowl
Fischer has time to to look up but the full back plays the ball straight to Omlin.
This is a solid start by Wolfsburg, who are taking the game the hosts. Marmoush is right in front of Omlin but heads straight into the arms of the keeper. That should have been 1-0.
We're underway at Borussia-Park.
It's a beautiful afternoon in Mönchengladbach and the teams are lining up to greet the fans. We're moments away from kick off ...
Borussia-Park is a sell out for what will be the 46th Bundesliga meeting between the sides. We're expecting the players in the tunnel in the next few minutes.

A question of mentality?
Wolfsburg claimed their 12th point from a losing position in the 2-2 draw at home to Augsburg - a joint league high for the season. Gladbach, in contrast, have dropped 14 points from winning positions, with only Augsburg sqaundering more (18).

Mid table or top six?
That's the question for Gladbach and Wolfsburg. Two hot-and-cold teams, the Foals finished Matchday 26 eight points adrift of the European qualification spots, with Wolfsburg a place and seven points better off. Can either side mount a serious and sustained late push...?
