Borussia Monchengladbach vs Mainz
Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
Borussia Monchengladbach have been in fine form lately and caught up with the top of the table with seven points earned in three games ahead of the International break, hosting Mainz for their Matchday 8 clash hoping to challenge Borussia Dortmund at the top this weekend already.
Die Fohlen have beaten Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich as well as held Wolfsburg to a thriller 2-2 draw, with a total of eight goals scored in their last three outings. Dieter Hecking will now hope his men can take confidence from such a streak and build on it in front of the home crowd once again!
Mainz 05 have shown off as a tough rival to beat too, though, and surely have hopes of their own. They’ve struggled to return to the winning ways after a very solid start of the season but still conceded just two goals in four Bundesliga outings, as they suffered losses to Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke on the road but held off Wolfsburg and Hertha at home ground!
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Mainz: Head-to-head
- We’ve seen two draws between the sides last season, including a 1-1 draw at this ground in November 2017.
- Mainz haven’t beaten Borussia Monchengladbach since January 2016.
- Die Fohlen have earned three wins and two draws in five head to head matchups since then.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Mainz: Prediction
We will now back the home side to build on such records and we’ll go for a Home win here at 1.61. We have seen them in great shape and Mainz could struggle to end their underwhelming streak on the road, which does give further evidence for such a bet.
We don’t believe we’re in for many goals despite an exciting clash looming and we’ll now also stick with another low-scoring clash between the sides, where Under 2.5 goals FT attracts many in the know at 2.40 – hoping Mainz will prove a tough nut to crack once again.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Mainz: Bet Tips
Home win here @ 5/8 (1.62)
Under 2.5 goals @ 7/5 (2.40).
