Kaiserslautern vs Borussia Monchengladbach build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Only nine teams in German football history have won the league four or more times, including Kaiserslautern. However, since winning the Bundesliga in 1997/98 as a newly-promoted club no less, Kaiserslautern have gone on a downward spiral and sit in the third tier of German football. Last season their DFB-Pokal journey ended at the first round, beaten by eventual quarter-finalists Jahn Regensburg, and they have been given a tough match this time around against Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach. Their chances may also be worsened by their winless start to the 3. Liga, drawing one and losing one of their opening two matches.

Gladbach, meanwhile, are preparing for their new era under Hutter having seen Marco Rose leave for Borussia Dortmund this summer (though the deal was announced back at the start of the year). Die Fohlen had an underwhelming campaign last season, ultimately missing out on European football with an eighth-placed finish in the Bundesliga while also being knocked out of the DFB-Pokal at the quarter-final stage and the Champions League last-16. Gladbach started their pre-season preparations in less than ideal fashion, drawing with Viktoria Koln and losing to Paderborn, but recovered to win their past three matches including a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich.

  • Kaiserslautern (vs SV Meppen): Raab; Schad, Tomiak, Gotze, Zuck; Ritter, Sessa; Zimmer, Wunderlich, Klingenburg; Hanslik.
  • Borussia Monchengladbach (vs Groningen): Sommer; Lainer, Elvedi, Ginter; Scally, Kramer, Neuhaus, Stindl; Herrmann, Wolf; Thuram.

Alassane Plea has returned to training and is in contention for Monday’s game, but Jonas Hofmann is a doubt. Denis Zakaria, Manu Kone, Ramy Bensebaini and Jordan Beyer are all injured. New signing Luca Netz won’t feature.

Player to watch: Alassane Plea (Borussia Monchengladbach)

Although Gladbach will be heavy favourites for this game, given the gulf in quality between these two sides, Hutter has insisted he will put out a strong squad, which means Alassane Plea could make his return.

The 28-year-old forward, who has been linked with a move away this summer, suffered a knee injury two weeks ago but has made a quick recovery at just the right time. Plea has been directly involved in 57 goals in 107 games for Gladbach since joining from Nice in 2018, and at one point formed a frightening attack alongside Marcus Thuram. Last season, however, he had an underwhelming campaign, scoring six goals and recording just one assist in the Bundesliga as Gladbach struggled as a whole (with the exception of Lars Stidl and Jonas Hofmann).

But Plea is back and will be raring to go, helping his side to the next round of the DFB-Pokal and catching the eye of any potential suitors should he want to move away.
