Borussia Monchengladbach vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Date: Sunday, 4 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
The Foals will have a nice chance to rebound from a dreadful run of back-to-back defeats to Freiburg (3-1) and Bayer Leverkusen (0-5). They host the recently-promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf side on Sunday afternoon.
The visitors share the very foot of the league standings together with Stuttgart. They took just five points from nine league games so far. It’s fair to say Friedhelm Funkel’s men have only begun to feel the strength of a top class football. They have been very easy to break down of late and they will come into this off the back of five consecutive losses in Bundesliga.
Fortuna allowed as many as 15 goals in last four defeats in the competition. This will be the music to the ears of the likes of Thorgan Hazard and Alassane Plea who bagged five goals each so far in the season for Gladbach.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Fortuna Dusseldorf: Head-to-head
Borussia lead the head to head tie by six wins coming into their 47th meeting with Flingeraner.
The two teams met each other in the previous term of DFB Pokal when the Foals took a narrow 0-1 victory in Dusseldorf.
Both teams scored in only one of last seven head outings.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Fortuna Dusseldorf: Prediction
Borussia allowed a tough 0-5 defeat to Bayer in mid-week’s DFB Pokal clash even though Dieter Hecking only rested Alassane Plea on the occasion. Nevertheless, they are yet to slip-up in front of the home crowd in this term of Bundesliga and we just have to see them as heavy favourites against an outfit which lost five on the bounce in the competition.
The Foals won four from four at home in the league bagging at least two goals in each of games in the process. They will now be up against league’s weakest defensive line which allowed 15 goals in last four matches. We truly expect a pleasant afternoon for the local fans at BORUSSIA-PARK.
