Stefan Lainer has revealed what he believes sets Borussia Mönchengladbach out from their competitors.

"We have a lot of players who have taken a big step forward this season under the new coach. Marco Rose is able to squeeze the last percentage points out of each one of us," Lainer told Sport Bild.

"For us, intensity and emotionality are crucial. Despite all the tactics, it's underestimated that the difference between victory and defeat often depends on whether you are able to build up more tension than the opponent team from the beginning," he added.

Gladbach sit fourth in the Bundesliga ahead of their game against Hoffenheim today.
