Borussia Monchengladbach vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Wednesday, 26 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
Borussia spoiled a fine kick off to the new Bundesliga campaign on Saturday when they fell 4-2 away at Hertha BSC. It was their first defeat of the season. Can the Foals bounce back right away in four days when Eintracht Frankfurt come to visit Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK for the mid-week fifth round of the competition?
The visitors started off in a much slower fashion. They took just one point from last three league games. It came in Sunday’s 1-1 draw to RB Leipzig at Commerzbank-Arena. The Eagles obviously have troubles adjusting to life without Niko Kovac on the bench. The new boss Adi Hutter has clear issues with his troops’ defensive performances. Frankfurt allowed six goals in last three games. It is clearly not the kind of form you want to have ahead of the trip to Monchengladbach and the clash with Borussia’s in-form attacking line.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Eintracht Frankfurt Head-to-head
- Frankfurt lead the head to head tie by five wins coming into their 91st encounter with the Foals.
- Gladbach were, however, more successful in matches at BORUSSIA-PARK where they won 18 and lost 13 of 45.
- Frankfurt dominated this match-up in the most recent history, though.
- The visitors won both of the previous term fixtures against Gladbach without conceding in the process.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Dieter Hecking will rely on his men’s home performances looking to make it there wins on the bounce at BORUSSIA-PARK here. Gladbach have already defeated the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke on the home patch this season.
The hosts bagged seven goals in four games so far. The summer’s acquisition Alassane Plea was the most lethal of Hecking’s attacking weapons. The Frenchman took his league tally to two when he scored team’s second goal in the aforementioned defeat to Hertha on Saturday.
Plea, Hazard & company should have plenty of space to keep the good form going and find the back of the net on multiple occasions past the struggling defense of Eintracht’s here.
