Borussia Monchengladbach vs Augsburg
Date: Saturday, 26 January 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
Borussia Monchengladbach got off to the best possible start to the New Year as they stunned Bayer Leverkusen 0-1 last weekend away at BayArena. The Foals thus kept pace on the reigning champions Bayern Munich who are just three points away in the second place. Dieter Hecking’s men will have a great chance to make it back-to-back league wins on Saturday as they are set to play host to relegation strugglers Augsburg at BORUSSIA-PARK.
The visitors continued to struggle after the winter break. They are winless in last nine league affairs, a thread which saw them slide down to 15th in the ladder. They are just one point above the red zone line and as many as six shy of Fortuna Dusseldorf in 14th place. Augsburg conceded five goals in last two home outings against Wolfsburg and Fortuna. The last weekend’s 1-2 loss to recently-promoted Flingeraner was a massive disappointment for Manuel Baum and his troops.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Augsburg: Head-to-head
The draw was the most common of outcomes in the history of H2H games between these two likes.
Borussia were the dominant force in home matches, though.
The Foals won 5, drew 2 and lost just 2 of 9 H2H games with Fuggerstadter in their own backyard.
Teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they battled it out in this term of Bundesliga at WWK Arena.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Augsburg: Prediction
Gladbach are the only outfit with a perfect home record so far in the season. They won right from eight at BORUSSIA-PARK with an impressive goal difference of 21-3 in the process. We honestly doubt the struggling Augsburg could do much to bring such an amazing streak to an end and the home win looks to be a genuine banker bet at the odds of 1.66.
Since Fuggerstadter allowed as many as five goals in last two league outings, we’d not be surprised to see the hosts bagging three or more here.
