Monchengladbach – Foals can make it seven without defeat?

With five of the six teams who begun Matchday 19 above them collecting three points, a 1-1 draw with a Union Berlin outfit one place below them in the table meant Marco Rose’s men conceded further ground in the ongoing battle for the top-four. The Foals, who were indebted to Alassane Plea for restoring parity last time out following a low-key collective effort, remain in seventh, a point behind fourth place Frankfurt.

Some positive news, however, comes in the shape of this weekend’s fixture. Gladbach (W8 D8 L3) boast more Bundesliga wins over FC Koln than versus any other opponent, having prevailed in 51 of the pair’s 91 top-flight encounters. Meanwhile, Rose himself has yet to experience anything other than success since signing on as manager in 2019, registering three wins from as many meetings against The Billy Goats.

Last week’s outcome also extended their fine run of form. The Foals have lost one of their past twelve Bundesliga matches – that a 2-1 reverse in their final fixture before Christmas at home to Hoffenheim, who trailed up until the 75th minute – and are currently unbeaten in the last six (W4 D2). In fact, this represents the club’s longest period without incurring defeat in the league for more than five years.


Gladbach Win To Nil



Koln – Nightmare fixture hints at more away toil?

Relief all round last time as Koln (W4 D6 L9) ended their club record 14-game winless run at home with a dominant 3-1 victory over fellow relegation rivals Arminia Bielefeld, who subsequently assumed the relegation play-off position recently vacated by Markus Gisdol’s side. Consequently, The Billy Goats come into Matchday 20 a couple places but only a solitary point clear of danger in 14th.

Therefore, the hard work has barely begun – especially as the fixtures stiffen considerably with three of the current top-four awaiting before the end of February. One quick glance at the league table suggests a trip to Gladbach is arguably the most forgiving, however, history tells us Koln have suffered more defeats (51 out of 91) and failed to score in more games (28) than versus any other Bundesliga opponent.

Factor in their recent woes in front of goal on the road, having netted only against bottom side Schalke (1-2) across their previous four away Bundesliga matches, and suddenly their prospects of recording back-to-back league wins for the first time since March of last year feel remote. However, this was a side written off at places such as Dortmund (1-2 win) and Leipzig (0-0) this season only to spring a surprise.

Monchengladbach Vs Koln Betting Advice

When these teams met earlier on in the season in Cologne, a visiting Gladbach raced into a 2-0 lead with little more than a quarter of an hour played, before Lars Stindl converted from the spot shortly after the break to put the contest beyond doubt. Koln would grab a late consolation before succumbing to their fifth defeat in six against The Foals, who would only fail to win one of the past seven here at Borussia-Park.


Monchengladbach Vs Koln – Key Facts:

  • Gladbach coach Marco Rose boasts a perfect record (W3) against FC Koln, while the Foals have won more often versus Koln (51 out of 91 top-flight games) than any other Bundesliga side.
  • Six of the past seven meetings to have been hosted by Gladbach were won by the Foals, with the four most recent of those all via a single goal margin (1-0 x3, 2-1).
  • FC Koln have now failed to register a goal in three of their previous four away Bundesliga games, scoring fewer away goals in 2020-21 (7) than all other sides.


Gladbach are short enough but should comply. Koln, meanwhile, will likely be buoyed by the manner of their recent triumph, however, their body of work over the course of the campaign shows fewer away goals scored (7 in 9) than any other team. Yet 1.44 goals conceded per away game is respectable. Therefore the hosts, with three 1-0 wins at home to Koln in the past five seasons, are backed to record a modest success.
