FC Koln vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: Saturday, 8th April 2017
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion, Cologne.
FC Koln welcomes Borussia Monchengladbach for the match that could potentially decide Bundesliga participants in UEFA Europa League next season.
The two sides are separated only by 4 points. The victory could significantly boost winner’s chances towards their UEFA destination.
Peter Stoger’s side is very inconsistent in the recent matches. However, they are managing to remain in the UEFA Europa League spots thanks to their back-to-back victories.
On Tuesday, they welcomed Eintracht Frankfurt in Cologne. The team led by Niko Kovac is woefully under-performing in the last two months, therefore FC Koln were able to snatch the whole prize.
BMG faced Hertha Berlin at Borussia-Park on Wednesday. Assisted by Stindl, Benes scored the only goal seen in that game, earning three points for his team.
Dieter Hecking certainly had hard times attempting to motivate the team after the FC Schalke 04 knocked them out of the Europa League. However, after beating Hertha BSC, Gladbach seem hungry for points again.
FC Koln vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
The guests will be looking for revenge as the loss they suffered in November will be long remembered by both teams. BMG were up 1-0 at half time, but Koln’s Anthony Modeste quickly leveled in the second half. In the closing minutes of the match, Risse found the net earning his team three points and inflicting the unforgettable defeat to Monchengladbach.
FC Koln vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
The meeting of the two sides led by two experienced managers Dieter Hecking and Peter Stoger could result in a wary approach from both sides. However, Monchengladbach are lacking proficient goal scorer such as Anthony Modeste. The French forward is definitely a player who can decide games.
