Hamburg vs. Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Volksparkstadion, Hamburg.
Hamburger had a great chance to take advantage of Wolfsburg’s loss to overate them in the relegation battle, but they fell themselves, 3-0 away at Eintracht Frankfurt last time out. The Red Shorts thus need a miracle on the final day in order to avoid the maiden relegation to the second tier of the German football.
The team led by Christian Titz need a win here and an upset from the already relegated Koln on the road against Wolfsburg. It’s obviously highly unrealistic scenario and we’d not be surprised to see the host losing the momentum in the second half in case of Wolfsburg’s convincing lead at Volkswagen Arena.
This is something Gladbach could well take advantage of as they also need points to try and catch the seventh place. To get there, the Foals need a win here and then slip-ups from Eintracht Frankfurt and Stuttgart in the last round Bundesliga fixtures.
Hamburg vs. Borussia Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
Both teams found the back of the net in four of last five head to head matches.
Overall, Hamburger SV lead the tie by five wins.

Hamburger won each of last two league ties against Gladbach netting five in the process.
Hamburg vs. Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
The visitors come into this with an improved confidence after picking up seven of the possible nine points in last three rounds. They bagged six goals in back-to-back home wins over Wolfsburg and Freiburg, but troubles pop up when they have to play away from Borussia Park. Dieter Hecking’s troops lost seven of last ten away matches in the league.
Hamburg, on the other side, won last two Bundesliga ties at home, and they could be worth backing to clinch the third straight home victory in matches with Gladbach at 2.30. Both teams to score is a decent alternative, set at the odds of 1.50.
