Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: Saturday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Merkur Spiel Arena, Dusseldorf
After a short international break, German Bundesliga resumes with the matches of 27th round this weekend. Fortuna Dusseldorf welcomes Borussia Monchengladbach at Merkur Spiel Arena and fans from both sides are hoping to see an end to a bad series of results.
Hosts have lost last two outings against Frankfurt and Wolfsburg quite convincingly 0-3 and 2-5. The good news for them is that relegation zone is 11 points away, so those losses shouldn’t be taken tragically.
Fortuna won majority of points in front of the home crowd. All matches played at this stadium were pretty much open and none of them has ended as a draw (six wins and seven losses). Bookmakers are still favouring the visitors though, as home win is offered at high 3.00 odds.
Humiliating 5-1 home loss to Bayern Munich had a lot of impact on Gladbach team spirits. They now have to get serious and win points in upcoming weeks to stay in the top 4 and participate in the UCL next season. When it comes to their record on the road, Borussia has five wins, four draws and four losses.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Borussia Monchengladbach Head-to-head
The first clash of the season was easily won by Borussia 3-0 (played in November last year).

The average number of goals seen in their clashes is 3.06 per duel.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
An important info is that hosts are severed by injuries. Ducksch, Drobny and Contento are sidelined, while Lukebakio is serving one-match suspension.
M’Gladbach were looking good in a friendly match against Zwickau recently, so I feel that away win is a nice bet. The tradition also says Fortuna rarely avoids defeat when facing Borussia M.
