Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Stuttgart are not pulling u any trees coming into Saturday’s home tie with Champions League hopefuls Borussia Monchengladbach. Die Schwaben can seriously wrap them up into the relegation scrap with another defeat here. They lost three and drew one of past four league outings and go into this winless in last six matches.
The 6-0 disaster away at Augsburg last weekend caused the managerial change. Nico Willig was appointed as the interim head coach instead of Markus Weinzierl. Can Willig shift team’s fortunes around in four most important games of the season for Stuttgart?
Die Schwaben currently hold the position which leads to relegation play-offs. They are just three points above penultimate-placed Nurnberg and desperately need success here.
Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
Historically, Stuttgart were the more successful side as they lead the tie by eight wins ahead of 97th meeting with the Foals.
However, Borussia Monchengladbach were the dominant force in the most recent set of head to head encounters with Stuttgart.
They won six of past seven meetings with Die Schwaben.
The thread includes a demolishing 3-0 victory back in early-December last year when teams last took on each other.
Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
M’Gladbach enjoyed a fabulous form in the first half of the season, but they lost ground on top four sides after the winter break. The Foals are still in contest for the fourth place finish and a place in the Champions League next season, though. They are just two points shy of Eintracht Frankfurt with four games left to play.
Dieter Hecking’s men fell 1-2 at home to 3rd-placed RB Leipzig seven days ago, but they will have a nice opportunity to return to winning ways immediately against such an out-of-form opposition.
Stuttgart found goals hard to come by lately as they bagged just one in last four league outings. Borussia also won six of last seven head to head matches with Die Schwaben which is why we just have to go for the 2.10 odds offered for the away win bet here.
