Borussia Monchengladbach vs Werder Bremen
Date: Saturday, 17 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 17:30 UK
Venue: Borussia-Park, Monchengladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia.
Borussia Monchengladbach resume their Bundesliga campaign after a disappointing trip to Manchester on Wednesday. A Pep Guardiola tutored Manchester City defeated them 4-0 at the Etihad, inflicting the second defeat in a competitive match inside 4 days. The Borussians started their Bundesliga season with a 2-1 home win over Bayer Leverkusen. But they were defeated by the newly promoted Freiburg on matchday two by a thumping 3-1 margin. Their head-coach Andre Schubert will be keen to get his team together as his team prepare for another tough test in the domestic competition on Saturday evening.
Werder Bremen have struggled on all fronts in their opening two Bundesliga matches. They started off with a humiliating 6-0 loss to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. And were against beaten at home by a brilliant Augsburg on matchday 2. Still in search for their first win, Borussia-Park is a not a venue that Bremen fancy to visit.

Monchengladbach vs Werder Bremen: Prediction
Gladbach are a pretty strong side while playing in front of their home fans. They are currently on an 8-match winning run at home in Bundesliga. Also, they failed to win just twice in their last 17 league games at the Borussia-Park.
While Werder Bremen are on a poor run away from home and lost in 7 of their last 10 matches on the road. Combined this with their heavy defeats in each of their last three visits to Gladbach, the home side are strong favourites to win this won. And if the stats are to be trusted they will be in for another hammering on Saturday evening.
