Monchengladbach vs Koln
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
The Colts are usual contenders for the top-four spots in the German top flight. Currently they are placed seventh in the table – just outside the Europa League spots. However, note that they could climb three spots with just an extra point.
They are also on an impressive unbeaten run at the moment. In fact, along with Wolfsburg, and Frankfurt, they remain one of the only three teams to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days in the league.
At home, they have been on an even more superb run this whole season, and have scored goals in huge numbers in the process.
Meanwhile, the Billy Goats are comparatively a new entrant into the German top flight, and are still trying to figure out ways to deal with the intensity of the Bundesliga.
Moreover, they have been conceding goals in alarming numbers lately, and their performances on the road have not been that great all through 2020-21.
In addition, Marco Rose’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue.
As such, expect Monchengladbach to record a winning performance this weekend at the Borussia Park.
