Gladbach – Foals finally looking up under Hutter?

Ten points from the last twelve available should all but quash any notion of demotion, as Gladbach look to strike late to salvage a season which had veered wildly off course since the Autumn. Adi Hutter felt like an exciting appointing, the Austrian having come within a penalty shootout defeat of making a European final as Frankfurt boss, but it has taken him until now to string together a four-game unbeaten run with The Foals.

Victories against Bochum, Hertha Berlin and, latterly, Greuther Furth, along with their home draw with Union Berlin, has propelled Die Fohlen up to eleventh and some 11 points clear of danger. It is probably too late to make the conversation for European qualification, though they undoubtedly boast the form for a late surge. Particularly defensively, with last week’s 2-0 scoreline in Furth their third clean sheet in four.

Key Stat: Six of the last seven Gladbach home games in the Bundesliga concluded with both sides having found the net. Meanwhile, this term, only two teams have seen a higher percentage of their Bundesliga home games produce both teams scoring than The Foals (71%).


FC Koln to Win From Behind



Koln – Billy Goats still in conversation for Europe?

In their most recent Bundesliga assignment, The Billy Goats put some recent scoring struggles behind them as they pipped Mainz 3-2 to win a five-goal thriller at RheinEnergieStadion. The eight fixtures which preceded last Saturday’s contest in Cologne had yielded just six goals, having previously gone eight consecutive Bundesliga outings without finding the back of the opposing net more than once.

We are about to discover whether those exploits were a flash in the pan. It is also another opportunity to double down, having failed to record back-to-back wins on the three previous occasions they were in this position. And if the prospects for a side whose form since mid-January (W4 D3 L4) screams unpredictable, then two wins from their six Bundesliga away games in 2022 is hardly a ringing endorsement either.

Key Stat: The Billy Goats have never had as many points at this stage of the season (43 after 29 games) during the three points for a win era. With five matchdays left, they can still eclipse their best-ever season total of 49, set in 2016-17.

While only once before have they managed consecutive away wins in this fixture. The Billy Goats striking early in either half to claim a 2-1 victory upon last visiting this venue, in February 2021.


Borussia Monchengladbach Vs FC Koln – Key Facts:

  • FC Koln are seeking their third successive Bundesliga victory over their opponents. Having won 2-1 here at Borussia Park in the second half of 2020-21, they then ran riot in Cologne on Matchday 13 of this season, winning 4-1.
  • Gladbach will have something to say about that after putting together their longest unbeaten run of the season. The Foals are currently four games without defeat (W3 D1), though did win just two of the last eight as hosts (W2 D2 L4).
  • Falling behind needn’t be a crisis for Koln. The Billy Goats have earned 17 points from losing positions in the Bundesligs this term, with this their highest such total since 1984-85.


Those recent meetings, coupled with a superior points total after 29 games of this season, points towards the away side being the value pick. However, it is difficult to ignore the recent resurgence of The Foals who are coming off three wins in four and are suddenly tougher to score past. Yet this is a fixture that invariably delivers on the goal front, the last four all see both teams score and at least three goals.
