Borussia Monchengladbach Preview – Can Gladbach pick up what would be their first home victory of the season?

Marco Rose would have been forgiven for thinking that his team were on course to inflict one of the most famous victories in recent club history on Tuesday night. Two goals up at home to Real Madrid, Gladbach were undone in the closing stages – conceding two goals from the 87th minute to the final whistle and had to settle for one point. It is the second lead they have let slip in their section following another 2-2 draw with Inter the week before.

Rose will feel confident his team have a chance can continue to compete for qualification but there will be frustration that they remain without a win following their efforts in the first couple of games.


Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score in 1st half

Domestically, Gladbach have picked up since an opening weekend loss away to Borussia Dortmund. They have won two and drawn two and interestingly, both victories have come on the road meaning they’re still looking for their first win at Borussia Park. Matches with Union Berlin and Wolfsburg have both ended in 1-1, share of the points results.
As it tends to be with Rose and Gladbach, if you want entertainment then you need look no further. Six of their seven games this season have seen both teams scoring and five of seven have had at least three goals in them.

RB Leipzig Preview – Will Leipzig respond after their midweek embarrassment in Manchester?

They may be top of the league and unbeaten in the Bundesliga after five games, but RB Leipzig and their coach Julian Nagelsmann are licking their wounds after a drubbing in the Champions League. Expectations were high that they could go to Manchester United and get something – especially as they were playing a team without a home win this season. Nagelsmann will point to the fact that four of the goals came in the last 20 minutes but they were poor throughout.

Looking at the bigger picture and it’s just one game in what has been an otherwise strong start to the season.

The only points that Leipzig have dropped in the league so far was the second weekend of the season and a 1-1 draw away to Bayer Leverkusen. Apart from that, they have handed the departure of Timo Werner from last season in their stride and scored at least two goals in all their other league matches.

What we do know from this Leipzig team is that they usually respond from a defeat. Only once during Nagelsmann’s reign have they lost back to back matches and will be determined they don’t add to that tomorrow.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs RB Leipzig Betting Advice

These two look primed for another positive campaign following their top four finishes last season but it’s Leipzig who hold the edge in this fixture. They have yet to lose against Gladbach in the Bundesliga with five wins from the previous eight meetings. It’s a brilliant record and one which they are favourites to extend by getting another three points tomorrow and retaining top spot in the Bundesliga for another week.

Key Facts – Borussia Monchengladbach vs RB Leipzig Betting Tip

  • The 2-2 draw with Real Madrid on Tuesday means Gladbach have drawn all three of their home games this season
  • It’s something of a recovery mission for Leipzig who were humbled 5-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday
  • Gladbach are yet to beat RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga – losing five and drawing three


Gladbach games are full of entertainment this season and there is no sign of that stopping on recent evidence. I can’t see anything other than more goals in this one and over 2.5 goals looks to be a very strong selection.
