Borussia Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
The Colts are one of the best teams in the competition, but at the moment they are going through a struggling stretch of games, and they desperately need a good performance to get their mojo back.
Their recent under-par games in the Champions League have fatigued them a bit, but still the team managed to qualify for the knockouts.
As of now in the German top flight, they are placed eighth in the table. However, a perennial European contender like them should target a spot in the top-six of the table.
This weekend, six of the seven teams above them are taking on each other, and at least three of them will be dropping points. Thus, an opportunity like this will not come for Marco Rose’s men again this season. They need to make it count anyhow.
They are pitted against Die Kraichgauer, who have had a single league win since September. On top of that, the Colts also have a positive h2h record against this rival over the years.
For the reasons, expect Monchengladbach to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Rose’s men had recorded five of the former six overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in 10 of the preceding 14 fixtures, and scored three or more goals in eight of the past thirteen match-ups.
- It’s been eight years since the hosts have won lost at this venue.
- The home team had scored two or more goals in six of the preceding nine encounters here.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
The Colts recorded a 3-3 draw on the road the last match-day, against Frankfurt. In the meantime, Sebastian Hoeneb’s men lost 0-1 at home against Leipzig the past game week.
Going on, Rose’s men were unbeaten in 16 of their previous 20 overall games, and the four losses during this stretch had come against some of the best teams in Europe.
Two had come in the Bundesliga against Dortmund, and Leverkusen. And the other two had come against Real Madrid, and Inter in the Champions League.
However, they are on a streak of draws at the moment, and they desperately need a win. Die Kraichgauer, who have won just once in the league in the last three months, seem like a good candidate to record a huge win against.
Moreover, Hoeneb’s men also have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years. As such, expect Monchengladbach to give their 100% on the pitch and secure their much-needed win this Saturday.
