Arminia Bielefeld vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Schüco Arena.
The Colts are one of the best teams in the competition, and are just three points away from possessing a European spot. However, they are currently going through a dismal run, and have dropped a worrying number of points in the process.
The team desperately needs a huge performance to get their confidence back. Also time is fast running out for them if they hope to represent Germany next season in European competitions.
And as if on cue, they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the league. Not only are the Blues a recently promoted squad, but they are also placed 16th in the table, and have a total of just two wins all through this campaign.
And note that the three wins had come against teams currently placed 15th, 17th and 18th in the table.
On top of that, Marco Rose’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
As things stand, expect Borussia Monchengladbach to secure the three points this Saturday at the Schuco Arena.

Bielefeld vs Monchengladbach Prediction
Uwe Neuhaus’s men won 0-1 on the road the last match-day, against Schalke. In the meantime, Rose’s men lost 1-2 at home against Hoffenheim.
Going on, the Blues had lost eight of their preceding ten overall games, and their only wins this new season (after getting promoted) had come against three teams placed bottom-most in the Bundesliga table.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 overall match-ups, and their only three losses on the road since June had come against Dortmund, Real Madrid, and Leverkusen – some of the best teams in the world.
Finally, the Colts are on an unbeaten run against this rival in h2h clashes since 2003, and they also have won every single league h2h encounter at this stadium in the past 15-year period.
Analyzing these factors, expect Monchengladbach to post a convincing win this weekend against the weak Bielefeld.
