Jupp Heynckes on…

…the first fixture of the New Year: “We're delighted it starts again on Friday, against a team which has had a magnificent last 12 months. They managed to avoid relegation, and they’re now four points behind us in the table. They're very hard to play against. They have an outstanding defensive system, they allow you very few chances, and they've let in very few goals. On top of that, it's traditionally a fixture full of action and incident. Bayern Munich visiting Mönchengladbach is always very special."
