Borussia Monchengladbach will look to keep their UEFA Europa League hopes alive when they welcome champions Bayern Munich on Saturday.
Lucien Favre’s men sit in eighth place, three points and two positions off Eintracht Frankfurt, who occupy the last UEFA Europa League spot.
A win for Monchengladbach could prove vital in their bid to secure European football next season, as seventh-place Hamburg host Bayer Leverkusen while Freiburg look to retain their grip on fifth spot when they meet Schalke.
This is in stark contrast to the Bundesliga champions, who capped off their home campaign with a resounding 3-0 win over Augsburg before receiving the league trophy.
Bayern have won eight of their last nine league matches, drawing the other against runners-up Borussia Dortmund, conceding just two goals in their last six league games.
However, he told the club’s official website he would use the next week, including the game against Monchengladbach, to prepare for the final at Wembley.
“In the course of the next few days of training, we’ll reiterate everything we need for our game plan and the essential things we’ll need for success at Wembley,” Heynckes said.
