Borussia Monchengladbach have opted for two strikers in attack as they take on European hopefuls Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga this afternoon.

The hosts will feature a partnership of Raffael and Max Kruse up top, with attacking support coming from a four-man midfield.

The two strikers will be looking for creative contributions from the likes of Juan Arango and Patrick Hermann from the wide positions.

Mainz will be looking for a big contribution from striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who is supported by strike partner Shinji Okazaki.

The visitors will rely on Elkin Soto and Christoph Moritz to pull the strings from the centre of the pitch.
