Union Berlin vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
Union Berlin have finally found a winning groove and are currently on a two-match winning streak in the Bundesliga. Their last clash on the road saw them take down Mainz with a 3-2 scorecard, prior to which they got the better of Hertha Berlin with a narrow 1-0 victory.
The Bundesliga debutants have now admitted defeat just once in their last five games across all competitions. It is also worth mentioning that Union Berlin have been at their best on home soil.
They have come away with all three points in half of their previous six games here. And have also been recording back to back wins in their last two in a running.
Be that as it may, it goes without saying that Union Berlin will be biting off more than what they can chew in this one.
Borussia Monchengladbach are at the top of the table at the moment and are sporting a four-point cushion to go with it as well. Despite enduring Europa League clashes mid-week, the away side are showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever. The visitors have picked up the win in each of their last three Bundesliga matchups. The most recent of which, was a 3-1 victory over Bremen.
Furthermore, as far as statistics go, Borussia Monchengladbach are the second-best away side in the cluster and have emerged victoriously in four of their last five outings. Given the red hot form that the visitors are on, a return to losing ways in certainly in the reckoning for Union Berlin this weekend.
Nevertheless, count on the hosts to put up a good fight. The home team have found the back of the net at least once in each of their last five games here, and have racked up eight goals to their tally so far.
Taking into account that Borussia Monchengladbach are without a clean sheet in their last five outings across all competitions too, count on Union Berlin to have their names on the scoresheet along with the visitors before the end of the ninety minutes.
