Borussia Monchengladbach will host a struggling Greuther Furth side in the Bundesliga on Saturday, and the hosts will hope to start positively after the international break.
Monchengladbach have struggled for consistency despite having a talented squad, and will look to push before the winter break.
In Furth, Monchengladbach have the perfect opposition to play against after the distraction of the international break.
Things are looking bleak for Greuther Furth as they are the only side in the Bundesliga yet to win a game. A record of 10 losses and a single draw means they have collected just one point so far this season.
Furth will be massive underdogs against Monchengladbach, and will hope to make it a close contest. They have managed to score in four of their last five games and will look to test the Gladbach defense.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Greuther Furth Head-to-head
The head-to-head record between the two teams is heavily one-sided as Gladbach have won eight of the 10 games between the two sides.
There have been two draws, and Furth have not won this fixture even once. They will hope to change that come Saturday.
