Borussia Monchengladbach vs Wolfsberger
Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Borussia-Park (Mönchengladbach).
Borussia Monchengladbach have not got off to the most convincing of starts in the Bundesliga and have won just two of their last four games. The squad managed to bounce back from a humiliating 3-1 loss against Leipzig at home though, with a slender 1-0 win over the newly-promoted FC Koln on the road in their most recent matchup.
Wolfsberger have snapped out of a dismal two-match losing run and are currently on a formidable four four-match winning streak. The away side pulled off an impressive 3-0 win over Austria Vienna in the comforts of their home while their last outing saw them take down the runners up of the 2018/19 domestic campaign LASK Linz.
Liendl scored the goal of the game in that latter clash to win it for his side who took eleven attempts at goal, four of which were right on target.
However, despite the impressive form that they are on, Wolfsberger will have to put in the extra effort this week as Borussia Monchengladbach could well give them a run for their money.

Monchengladbach vs Wolfsberger Prediction
In all honesty, the home team have not been a force to reckon with in their clashes so far. Nevertheless, to their defense, they feature in one of the toughest leagues across Europe.
Furthermore, the visitors have never made it this far in any European competition before and have little or no experience in taking teams of this stature on the global stage as well.
The hosts have lost just one out of their last two fixtures on home soil, that too against the current table-toppers. Taking into account that they will be welcoming Wolfsberger on the back of a positive outcome in their most recent matchup, you can certainly count on the German outfit to make light work of their foes, who are just not on par with the hosts on any level.
Additionally, Borussia Monchengladbach have not been at their best defensively even with home advantage intact. Their foes for the week, on the other hand, have found the back of the net in each of their last five outings and have racked up six goals from their last three alone. Given that the hosts have not won with a clean sheet in any of their last ten games here either, Wolfsberger are more than likely to get their names on the scoresheet in this one.
