Borussia Monchenghladbach vs Werder Bremen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 2 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA PARK (Monchengladbach).
Borussia Monchengladbach have finally managed to arrest the slump in form and clinch a victory after four subsequent defeats in Bundesliga. The Foals have thus returned into the contest for the European spots and they will host Werder Bremen in high spirits with the 0-1 win over Hannover 96 under their belts.
Dieter Hecking, however, still has plenty of issues with his team’s attacking line as the lone goal in the mentioned victory came from midfielder Christoph Kramer. Prior to that, the Foals have failed to find the back of the net at all in four subsequent Bundesliga outings. With this win, the Foals now sit seventh in the league ladder being four points shy of the top six spots.
A result here in the opening game of the new Matchday is thus crucial for them, but the hosts will need to work hard to get it given that Werder Bremen have improved their form at the start of the year. The River Islanders are no longer in the drop zone after beating Freiburg 1-0 at Weser last time out. Their defensive line looks much more solid under Florian Kohfeldt as Werder will come into this after conceding only a single goal in three of last four away matches in the league.
