Borussia Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim
Date: Saturday 26th November, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK, Monchengladbach.
Can Hoffenheim stay undefeated after the 12th round in Bundesliga? The team led by Julian Nagelsmann survived the visit to Allianz Arena two weeks ago when they managed to hold the defending champions to a 1-1 draw. However, the visit to BORUSSIA-PARK will represent yet another super tough challenge, in spite of the poor form the hosts showed over the last couple of weeks.
Hoffenheim are currently enjoying the 5th position in a very strange season of Bundesliga where teams like RB Leipzig, Koln, Hertha BSC and Hoffenheim are in the top part of the league standings together with Bayern Munich.
Borussia Monchengladbach have had a pretty tough schedule over the last couple of weeks as they had to face the mentioned teams, losing to both Hertha and Koln. Andre Schubert can be happy with his team’s performance in Champions League match against Manchester City though, as Gladbach will enter the game with Hoffenheim full of confidence after holding the Citizens to a 1-1 draw in midweek.
