Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Christoph Kramer is hopeful his side can extend their stunning home record against Wolfsburg on Sunday.
Monchengladbach – who sit fourth in the Bundesliga, just goal difference behind Borussia Dortmund – have won all eight of their fixtures at Stadion im Borussia-Park this season.
A perfect home record sees Monchengladbach occupying the last of the UEFA Champions League spots and they could go six points clear of the fifth-placed Wolfsburg with victory this weekend.
The 22-year-old Kramer, who has started 15 of his side’s 16 Bundesliga matches this season, has his fingers crossed that the record will continue ahead of the mid-season break.
“Sport is also a little bit about making records and I would very much like to extend that record we currently have with our home games,” Kramer said on Wednesday.
“It would be great if in the first leg of 2013 we would win all the home games and we want to try everything to achieve that.
“I think we all know that it’s going to be difficult (though). Wolfsburg are also in a very good phase at the moment and they’re just three points behind us.
“It’s a home game of course we want to win this, but we know of their big qualities in all parts of the team, so therefore it’s going to be a difficult challenge once more.”
