Die Schwarzgelben final push for Europa League

Jürgen Klopp's message is loud and clear and for any Footballer, you've heard it before. Everything is on the line and yesterday is forgotten, it is your chance to rise to the top.

Die Schwarzgelben visit Gladbach tomorrow in a death battle to the finish. For the home-side it could mean survival and BVB is fighting for the improbably charge that has lead them to foot of European football. Push beyond the tactics, forget the place in the table, this will be the ultimate of matches with everything on the line.

Tensions will run high and given Gladbach's style of man marking and veteran players lead by Tomáš Galásek, this is likely to be very physical match. Alexander Frei and Tamás Hajnal had problems during the week with injuries but they are expected to be able to go.
