RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach
Date: 11 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
RB Leipzig significantly halted their potential push for the title battle last Friday when they suffered a 2-1 defeat to direct rivals Borussia Dortmund in the derby of the Matchday.
They are now fourth in the Bundesliga standings, sitting seven points shy of joint-leaders Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Marco Rose’s troops will be hoping to return to winning ways and boost up the spirits ahead of the return leg of the Champions League R16 tie against Manchester City in England with a three-pointer in the home fixture against Monchengladbach on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts head into this as massive favorites, namely thanks to their stellar form at Red Bull Arena in this term of the competition. RB Leipzig won 8, drew 2, and lost just 1 of 11 league games in front of their fans this season.
When you pair this with Monchengladbach’s poor record on travels, you get an easy home win as the only logical betting prediction here.
Borussia lost six of the last seven away outings across competitions. They have allowed four goals in each of the previous two road failures against the likes of Hertha Berlin and Mainz.
This will be the music to the ears of Andre Silva, Emil Forsberg, Timo Werner, and company. Werner is expected to return to starting XI as Christopher Nkunku has suffered another injury in the last weekend’s loss at Signal-Iduna-Park.
RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach Head-to-head
- The home court advantage has played a big role in the short history of this matchup as we’ve seen home wins in each of the previous five head to head outings.
- RB Leipzig have three wins and draws apiece in the last six home clashes against Monchengladbach.
- We have seen at least three goals scored in seven of the previous eight H2H matches between these rivals.
