Borussia Monchengladbach vs Darmstadt 98
Date: Saturday, 20th May 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Borussia-Park, Monchengladbach.
After drawing VfL Wolfsburg last Saturday, Monchengladbach welcome doomed Darmstadt 98 within the last clash of Bundesliga season.
Dieter Hecking’s men dropped two points against the Wolves due to Mario Gomez’s effort who saved his men yet again this season. BMG are in the ninth position with 44 points collected and their chances of reaching UEFA Europa League are very slim. Even if they beat Darmstadt, they need Eintracht’s victory in DFB Pokal final in addition to Koln’s and Bremen’s defeat.
In 16 home games this season, Gladbach were far from brilliant. They have managed to win 7 games while losing 5 and drawing 4, scoring 24 goals and conceding 16 in the process. Recently, BMG’s matches are completely open since their defense is severely struggling so most of the time their opposition is able to score at least a goal per match.
After a horrible Bundesliga campaign, Darmstadt 98 faced the relegation. Their fans enjoyed the final push when Darmstadt managed to win three games in a row, but Allianz Arena visit was an insurmountable obstacle for the future 2. Bundesliga team.
Darmstadt have managed to win only three points on the road throughout the whole 2016/17 Bundesliga campaign.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Darmstadt 98: Prediction
The guests will be looking to create a memorable Bundesliga departure but it’s improbable that Gladbach will drop points in a match that could turn their season around, despite their odds are not looking good. BMG’s defensive line is struggling recently, so the relegated guests could surprise Gladbach and certainly make the match more entertaining.
