Monchengladbach vs Stuttgart
Date: Sunday, 9 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
Borussia Monchengladbach lost ground on table-toppers Dortmund who escaped on a seven-point cushion after last weekend. We can say the Foals are still enjoying an overwhelming campaign as they sit second in the Bundesliga ladder after 13 rounds of the competition. They will have a nice opportunity to return on the winning ways right away on Matchday No 14 when they play host to relegation strugglers Stuttgart at Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK.
Dieter Hecking’s men were impeccable on the home patch so far in the season. They won six out of six at BORUSSIA-PARK in this term of Bundesliga. The Foals are particularly tough to break down in their own backyard where they only allowed three goals in six matches so far in the campaign.
They will be up against poor travellers in the likes of Stuttgart who won 1, drew 1 and lost 5 of 7 away fixtures in the league. Die Schwaben bagged five goals along the way and they generally boast league’s weakest attacking record with just 9 goals notched in 13 matches so far.
Monchengladbach vs Stuttgart: Head-to-head
Stuttgart lead the head to head tie by nine wins coming into 96th encounter with the Foals.
The most recent H2H history belongs to Gladbach who won five of last six meetings with the Reds.
The Foals won three in a row against Stuttgart on the home pitch with an impressive 8-0 goal difference in the process.
Monchengladbach vs Stuttgart: Prediction
Markus Weinzierl did manage to move Stuttgart from the rock bottom of the league ladders since taking charge in October. Die Schwaben picked up important wins over Nurnberg (0-2) and Augsburg (1-0) in recent weeks. However, they have huge troubles in the build-up play against stronger rivals.
Given Stuttgart will be up against a side which only conceded three goals in six home matches this term, we can hardly see them on the scoreline in this last game of the Matchday in Bundesliga. The home win to nil is the way to go based on both this season’s form as well as the recent H2H trend.
