Gladbach: Hofmann wants to defend second place
You want to defend the second place: Gladbach players.
"Bremen is not yet verified," Elvedi said after the session, "I did not feel any pain anymore, see if I can come back tomorrow or Friday." On Sunday, 3-0 over Fortuna Dusseldorf, the center of the back was bent and tightened, according to club information, a strain of ligament in the ankle. At break, Elvedi had to come out because Tony Jantschke came. This exchange in the center of defense would also be the most probable solution for the Bremen match if Borussia were to do it without Elvedi on Saturday.
Otherwise, Coach Dieter Hecking could welcome the whole team while preparing for the younger challenger, Julio Villalba (severe bruising at the shoulder). It was also Denis Zakaria, who missed the home game against Dusseldorf due to an inner knee extension. The midfielder is available at Weser.
Hofmann: "Zero Thoughts" to the National Team
Borussia would like to enjoy the vision on the table after the end of next week. "We want to defend the second place, which would look great in the two-week international break," says Jonas Hofmann before the Weser duel, which promises a great entertainment value for him: "Both teams play good football and are pretty good Offensive Oriented, hoping for a game where it goes up and down, if both get their potential, it could be a very good game. "
And hope that his strong performance this season – including five Bundesliga goals on his account – will be rewarded Friday with the national team nomination? Hofmann remains calm: "I do not worry at all – for me, now only the game in Bremen counts, that's the attention."
