Wolfsburg vs Monchengladbach
Date: Saturday, 29 September 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: VOLKSWAGEN ARENA (Wolfsburg).
Borussia Monchengladbach returned on the winning ways on Wednesday when they saw off Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 in front of the home crowd. It was summer’s arrival Alassane Plea who opened up the scoring for the Foals 11 minutes inside the second half.
It was the third goal of the season for the Frenchman who has indeed been in fine form lately bagging one in each of last two appearances for Dieter Hecking side. Can the former Nice striker keep such form going and find the back of the net for the third time in just seven days here against Wolfsburg?
The hosts have been playing hot and cold since the start of the season. They opened the new campaign in a promising manner winning two opening games against Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen. Nonetheless, the Wolves went on to claim only two points from following three games, a thread which included a disappointing 1-3 loss to Freiburg on the home court last weekend.
Wolfsburg vs Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
Trips to VOLKSWAGEN ARENA have never actually gone well for the visitors.
The Foals won just 2 and lost as many as 14 of 19 matches against Wolfsburg away from home.
The Wolves were on a run of three wins and a draw in four outings before Borussia notched a 3-0 victory in their previous meeting in Monchengladbach.
Wolfsburg vs Monchengladbach: Prediction
The visitors will head into this higher on confidence, but we can hardly back them to clinch the spoils because of a poor away record they have in both H2H record and this term of Bundesliga. Hecking’s troops won three of three at home this season, but took only one point from two away fixtures against Augsburg and Hertha.
The Foals shipped five goals in these two outings. Knowing that Wolfsburg have generally dominated this match-up in games at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA, we have to find the value in backing the hosts to notch two or more goals at the odds of 2.10.
You can alternatively back goals at both ends at 1.61.
