Borussia Monchengladbach vs FC Augsburg
Date: 21 November 2020, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET.
Venue: Borussia-Park (Monchengladbach).
Monchengladbach will be keen to get back to winning ways when they welcome Augsburg for Saturday’s Bundesliga clash.
The Borussen had a slow start to the 2020/21 season, but they got back on track brilliantly with impressive performances in both Bundesliga and Champions League. But their 8 match unbeaten streak is brought to an end with the 3-4 defeat at Leverkusen.
On the other hand, Augsburg started the season by winning their first two games, the second an impressive one and probably the biggest upset of the season against Dortmund with a 2-0 scoreline. However, they were all over the park since, lost 3 and drew 1 of the next 5 with an exception of win against relegation bound Mainz.
Saturday’s fixture will be a tough test for Heiko Herrlich’s men with Monchengladbach being one of the toughest teams to beat at their own backyard.
Monchengladbach vs Augsburg Head-to-head
Gladbach is unbeaten in the last 7 head-to-head games versus Augsburg, 4 wins and 3 draws.
Last season, they did a double with a 5-1 win at Borussia-Park and 3-2 at the WWK Arena.
Both teams scored in 5 of their last 7 h2hs, over 2.5 goals were scored in 3.
Monchengladbach vs Augsburg Prediction
Augsburg’s recent form is poor and they tend to struggle in away games with the exception of a mini resurgence towards the end of last season. Also, they have a poor record against teams that finished above top 5 in the table last season.
After a slow start to the season, Monchengladbach are firing from all cylinders and they are easily our favourites to beat Augsburg in Saturday’s Bundesliga clash.
It will be worth noting that the Prussians lost just 2 of their last 18 Bundesliga home games registering wins in 13.
The odds for home win are in the region of 1.50 odd and justified since they won this same fixture at this ground in the last 3 seasons.
With Gladbach seeing over 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 10 games across all competitions this season, the same bet can be taken for this match as well, is a decent punt on 1.55 odds.
