Borussia Monchengladbach - Bayern Munich Preview: Jupp Heynckes' side looking to book their place in the DFB-Pokal final
The Bavarians are aiming to continue their rampant form against Lucien Favre's men, who are yet to lose a game at home this season

Jantschke, Dante, Brouwers, Daems

Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba
Robben, Muller, Ribery
The good news for Borussia Monchengladbach is that Tony Jantschke is back to take his place on the right side of defence after missing Satuday's win over Bayer Leverkusen through suspension.
Patrick Herrmann is set to be involved after recovering from a lengthy collar bone problem, but is likely to only take a place on the bench, with Oscar Wendt continuing to fill his berth on the right-hand side of midfield.
Meanwhile, despite scoring a late winner in the weekend's clash, Igor De Camargo is unlikely to start, with Lucien Favre likely to continue with his preferred striking pair of Marco Reus and Mike Hanke.
After encountering problems with who to play in defence all season, Jupp Heynckes' side have found some stability of late with David Alaba at left back, Philipp Lahm on the right-hand side of defence and Jerome Boateng partnering Holger Badstuber in the centre.
However, Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to miss the encounter with a minor ankle injury sustained in his recover from torn ligaments.
Daniel Van Buyten has a broken foot sustained the last time these two sides met, while Breno has a knee injury.
