RB Leipzig Preview – Can Leipzig make it a fifth straight win in the league to keep the pressure on Bayern?

When Leipzig lost at home to Borussia Dortmund and then could only draw away to Wolfsburg next time out, their chances of a first ever Bundesliga looked by for another season. Now, around five weeks later, Leipzig are just two points behind champions Bayern Munich. There is real enthusiasm now that this is their season and that will only strengthen if they can take all three points in this one.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men have won their last four in the league and have four matches before what could be a pivotal clash against Bayern, whom they entertain at the beginning of April.


Our betting prediction:
RB Leipzig to win to nil

Bet at Paddy Power

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 26 February)
Leipzig have the best defensive record in the Bundesliga, conceding only 18 goals in their 22 games to date. That’s been evident in that run of four wins where they have conceded just one goal – scoring nine goals in the process. If Leipzig are to overcome perennial champion Bayern then that defensive record has to hold and they’ll also have to be clinical up top.
They also have the best home record in the league with nine wins from 11 and just one defeat. In a season where we’ve seen home advantage diminished all across Europe, Leipzig continue to be extremely strong.

Borussia Monchengladbach Preview – Are Gladbach capable of putting a poor run behind them to get a much-needed win?

The announcement of Marco Rose leaving to take over at Borussia Dortmund once this season is over appears to have had a really damaging effect on Gladbach’s form. It was the worst kept secret in German football and by making it public the club hoped it would settle things down on the park. It hasn’t. They now find themselves in eight place and nine points outside the top four.

A 2-1 home defeat to Mainz last weekend means it’s no wins in four league games. When you consider they had won six and drew two of their eight games prior to that, it’s a significant decline in performance.

A Champions League spot may well be beyond them but a win here could reignite that chance, especially as they’ve still to face all the teams who are currently above them in the table. But failing to take anything from this game would leave them really up against it, despite the number of matches remaining.

Rose and his players can take some confidence from their away record. Gladbach are unbeaten in their last six away matches in the Bundesliga – although five of them have been draws.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Advice

Despite the visitor’s struggling for wins at the moment, Leipzig will be under no illusions about how tough it will be for them to get a win that keeps them on the heels of Bayern who could be five points ahead when this game kicks off.

Gladbach earned their first win over this opponent back in October when winning 1-0 at home and they will be hoping to do the double to keep alive their faltering hopes of a top four finish.


Key Facts – RB Leipzig vs Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Tip

  • Leipzig have went to within two points of leaders Bayern following four straight wins
  • Gladbach’s hopes of a top four finish have taken a huge blow with just one win in their last five games
  • Marco Rose’s men were 1-0 winners when the teams met back in October


The timing of this game as well as their current form are barriers which Gladbach have to overcome. Having played in the Champions League on Wednesday it’s a quick turnaround for them. Leipzig haven’t played since last weekend and that freshness, along with their excellent home record, should see them to another victory.
