RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach
Date: Wednesday, 21st September 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena Leipzig.
RB Leipzig’s entrance into the German Bundesliga couldn’t have been much more dramatic. They are unbeaten after three matchdays with 2 wins and a draw and are enjoying a place near Champions Bayern Munich at the top of the table. Leipzig thrashed Hamburg SV 4-0 away from home last weekend, with all four goals coming in the later stages of the second half. And they are coming back for the second home match of the season, with the first one being a major upset of 1-0 win against Borussia Dortmund.
Borussia Monchengladbach is another German side that impressed in the league last weekend. They didn’t have any trouble in brushing aside a struggling Werder Bremen at home. And their dominance was confirmed by the final score line which read 4-1. The Borussians are one the sides who are expected to be in the top three this season. Yet, they have a major roadblock in their away form. They lost at Freiburg 3-1 in their first away match of the season, which was their 8th defeat in 11 away matches in Bundesliga.

They are unbeaten this season and are coming on the back of two excellent wins and they will be in for a third on Wednesday evening.
