Gladbach coach Daniel Farke has revealed that Jonas Omlin is unlikely to be fit for Saturday’s Bundesliga clash with Freiburg.

Omlin was forced off during Friday’s 4-0 defeat to Mainz. Although the goalkeeper was back in individual training today, Farke said at his pre-match press conference that it would be a “minor miracle” if he were to play on Saturday.

“We’ll need a minor miracle for him to play on Saturday. We will try everything we can until the last minute, as he’s a very important player for us,” said the Gladbach coach.

With Jan Olschowsky out with a stomach flu, Tobias Sippel will replace Omlin if he’s unavailable.

On the positive side, Hannes Wolf and Marcus Thuram should be fit after shaking off knocks.

“Hannes Wolf felt the strain a little this week, so we left him out yesterday, but he was back on board today.

“Marcus Thuram missed the first sessions this week, but was able to train yesterday and today. He’s got a good chance of making the game.”
