Borussia Monchengladbach vs Wolfsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 20 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
Wolfsburg are undefeated in three straight league outings, but they still have a mountain to climb in order to save the top flight status at the end of the season. The Wolves are lock on points with Mainz and Freiburg at the position leading to the relegation playoffs come May.
Bruno Labbadia’s men will try and make it four games in a row without conceding a goal on Friday evening when they travel to Monchengladbach to take on Borussia in the opening fixture of the weekend. The hosts lost touch with the sides in the battle for the top six finish because of the poor run of two wins in last 11 league outings.
Gladbach are struggling badly for consistency and they are one of the toughest sides for predictions in Bundesliga. At home, Borussia won just one of last five league games, but that victory came two weeks ago when the Foals dispatched Hertha BSC 2-1.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
Gladbach are set as the favourites by the bookies, but we can hardly see the value in backing the home win at 1.85 knowing they’ve only clinched two victories in last 12 league games. On the other side, Wolfsburg did not concede a single goal in last three league matches, a streak which saw them claim five points against Hertha BSC, Freiburg and Augsburg. The main option will thus be Wolfsburg or Draw Double Chance and the odds are 1.95.
Alternatively, we’ll shoot for the low-scoring contest expecting the visitors to park the bus and wait for their chances from counter-attacks. This strategy worked out very well of late for Labbadia and his men.
