Borussia Monchengladbach vs RB Leipzig
Date: Friday, 30 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Borussia-Park (Mönchengladbach).
Borussia Monchengladbach have certainly not got off to the most convincing of starts and have just one win to boast of so far. The hosts bounced back from the less than exciting stalemate that they played out against Schalke in their opener at home, by coming out on top against Mainz on the road last week.
Despite being pushed into the back foot early on in the latter clash, the home team replied soon after with three different players getting their names on the scoresheet for them.
The second runners up of last season are on a two-match winning streak at the moment, with their last fixture on the road against Frankfurt finishing 2-1 in their favor.
Although home advantage is favoring Borussia Monchengladbach in this one, it needs saying that RB Leipzig are on an impressive run of form at the moment, and are hence, the favorites to walk away with the win on Friday.

Monchengladbach vs RB Leipzig Prediction
The home team are unbeaten in their new campaign, but to be frank, their opponents so far were sides that finished outside the top ten in the previous edition. RB Leipzig are by no means an easy team to brush past.
The visitors, who came in behind Dortmund in the table last time around, have been not tasting defeat in their previous visits to this venue, and have secured the bragging rights every single time. Moreover, Leipzig have lost just one out of their last ten outings in the Bundesliga.
The hosts, on the other hand, have been outright dismal on home soil, with their last win across all competitions at home, coming way back in the start of this year. A home record this disappointing is nowhere near good enough to take down the stellar visiting side, so a third successive win for Leipzig is definitely in the cards.
Two out of their last three meetings here have seen over 2.5 goals on the scoresheets. Considering that both the teams have also scored nine goals between them from their matchups so far as well, you can certainly count on a high scoring clash to unfold by the end of the ninety minutes.
