Borussia Monchengladbach vs Ingolstadt
Date: Saturday, 24th September 2016,
Kick-Off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Borussia-Park, Monchengladbach.
Borussia Monchengladbach rely on their strong home form when they welcome Ingolstadt to the Borussia-Park on Saturday afternoon.
Borussia Monchengladbach escaped with a 1-1 draw in their mid-week fixture at the newly promoted Leipzig only to avoid a defeat for the third time in 12 away games in the league. Their home record is on the contrary after having registered 9 wins straight win with the 4-1 thrashing of Bremen a fortnight ago. They were beaten only once in their last 18 home games, with 16 of them being victories.
Ingolstadt are on a terrible run and are yet to win a match this season. They lost at home to Eintracht Frankfurt this midweek which was their 9th Bundesliga match without a win. And their away record is even worse as their last win on the road came on September 2016. This now stretches to 18 matches without a win in away matches for Ingolstadt.
Monchengladbach vs Ingolstadt: Head-to-Head Stats
In the pair of Bundesliga meetings last season, Ingolstadt managed to remain unbeaten. They drew 0-0 at Gladbach on November 2015 and earned a narrow 1-0 win in the reverse fixture at home on April 2016.
Ingolstadt is one of the four sides that denied Monchengladbach a win at their home in the whole of 2015/16 season.
The only other meeting in recent years was in a friendly on 2013, which Ingolstadt won at home 1-0.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Ingolstadt: Prediction
Borussia Monchengladbach is a side that hardly drops points in Bundesliga home matches. It will be interesting to know that they have lost just 5 times since the start of 2014/15 season in 38 matches till today. And Ingolstadt are a side that usually collapse in away games. With Ingolstadt coming on the back of a win-less run in 18 away games and intense pressure due to the poor start this season, the hosts are in pole position to take all three points.
I will be also leaving my correct score prediction of a 3-1 win in favour of Monchengladbach at the odds of 13.00 (12/1) for your extra pennies.
