Borussia Monchengladbach vs Hertha Berlin
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
The Colts are placed seventh in the table, and have posted a total of 16 points on the board. However, the sixth-placed Union Berlin also have just 16 points against their name, and they are pitted against toppers Bayern Munich.
This gives Marco Rose’s men a huge opportunity to climb up the table. They are at home, and they have been in fact one of the best teams in the competition for the past few years.
They are also brimming with confidence and positivity after securing a ticket to the Round of 16 in the UCL just behind Real Madrid – which left Inter Milan in the dust.
Going on, they have a great h2h record against this opponent as well, and especially so at this venue.
Meanwhile, Die Alte Dame are one of the weakest in the league, and particularly so in recent weeks. They also have been on a struggling run on the road for the past several match-days.
By the looks of things, expect Monchengladbach to have the upper hand this weekend.
Monchengladbach vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-1 win at home for the Colts, and the game had taken place just five months back.
- They had also recorded 11 of the previous 14 overall fixtures.
- They had scored two or more goals in 11 of the former 16 clashes.
- Since 2008, the guests have won just once at this stadium.
- The home team had scored two or more goals in six of the past eight match-ups at this venue.
Monchengladbach vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction
Rose’s men were held to a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day, by Freiburg. In the meantime, Bruno Labbadia’s men recorded a 3-1 win at home against Union Berlin.
Going on though, the Colts were unbeaten in 13 of their previous 16 overall matches, and they have lost just once at home since May. Do also note that they have lost a total of three games at this ground in 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their past 14 fixtures, and they had gone on two separate four-game losing runs in the process. And on the road, they have won just twice in the past seven-month period.
Finally, Rose’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and have scored in plenty against them as well.
Likely, expect Monchengladbach to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
