Monchengladbach failed to even slot in a goal in their opening fixture as they fell under Borussia Dortmund’s tight grip and end up defeated with a 3-0 score on the board.
Marco Rose will be glad to return home after that loss, as he has enough time to pick up his team from that devastating loss on the road. Besides, facing a team that was at the 11th spot last season will be an additional comfort for the gaffer.
Union Berlin hardly advanced to the next round in the DFB Pokal Cup after the goalless draw on the road with Karlsruher. However, their opening clash in the Bundesliga this season came with a 1-3 loss at home against Augsburg.

Monchengladbach vs Union Berlin Prediction
Borussia M’gladbach, is clear favorites here, having finished the last term at the fourth position in the campaign table.
The Fohlen has avoided defeat in more than 90% of their home league matches last season in their records. So, they will have an obvious use of their ground advantage.
Union Berlin had a tough time on the road the last term, with just 4 wins from their 17 outings in the Bundesliga. And in their away fixtures, Die Eisernen had only one win in the last five attempts in the campaign schedule.
Based on these stats, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns from the encounter.
Furthermore, the host has scored in all their 16 consecutive Bundesliga home fixtures. Besides, the host has netted an average of 2.35 goals per game across all Bundesliga home games. Meanwhile, Die Eisernen averaged only 1.0 goal per game in their away fixtures last season.
Based on that stat, we cannot expect full-fledged attacks from both teams in the clash. The host is on a three-game winning streak at home but has only one clean sheet win. So, anything can happen as their defense is not the strongest around in the mix.
The goals will not flow at a huge rate, but still, there will be adequate action within ninety minutes at the Borussia-Park. Hence, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be a suitable option from the goals area for the punters.
