Gladbach wants to surpass Leipzig
Seems like the footballworld is a little bit upside down in German Bundeslig. One would have rateher expected Borussia Mönchengladbach to be where promoted team RB Leipzig is currently ranked. The “foals” have the chance to adjust the circumstances again in the game in Leipzig. Kick-off is September 21 at 8 PM.
Current form RB Leipzig
The promoted team is rocking the league! It already was obvious before the season that Ralph Hasenhüttl’s team wouldn’t be one of the weakest ones in the first league in Germany. But nobody would have expected them to rank third after three rounds either, especially considering the tough opponents that they had to play. That tough program started with a last minute draw against Hoffenheim (2:2), which was followed by the sensational win over Borussia Dortmund (1:0). The 4:0 against Hamburger SV was the so-called cherry on the cake. Leipzig is particularly counting on pressing and a fast transition game. The statistics of the last two games prove that. Against Dortmund (45%) as well as HSV (43%), Leipzig had clearly less ball possession, but they were very efficient. Similar to the other surprise team from Berlin, Leipzig also has a strong bench, which already resulted in a couple of joker goals. Four of the last five goals were scored by players who came off the bench. Additionally the promoted team has been playing outstanding defense since the game against Hoffenheim. They didn’t allow Dortmund to shoot directly at the goal once in 90 minutes. Apart from the defenders, midfielders Ilsanker and Demme performed especially well.
Current form Borussia Mönchengladbach
While opoonent Leipzig currently stands for consistency, Borussia Mönchengladbach’s season resembles something like a rollercoaster ride so far. In the last couple of weeks wins and losses took terms. Gladbach won their season opener against Bayer 04 Leverkusen 2:1, then lost to SC Freiburg (1:3). At the start of the Chmapions League season they didn’t stand a chance against sheik club Manchester City (0:4). In the league the Schubert-Eleven rehabilitated themselves with a clear and deserved 4:1 victory against currently last ranked Werder Bremen. Summarizing one can say that Borussia is especially struggling in away games. The last win away happened in the Champions-League-Playoff against Young Boys from Bern. But this 3:1 was a bit flattering and it happened over a month ago. What’s positive is that the strikers have been very accurate lately. Raffael and Thorgan Hazard both scored two goals against Bremen in the 3-5-2 System. Leipzig will have to be alert in the first half, because Gladbach has scored six of their seven goals this season before half time. It will be interesting to see, whether the Schubert-Eleven will be able to get rid of their weakness in away games against the promoted team.
A close game can be expected. The promoted team is in absolute top shape right now. Leipzig hasn’t lost a game since the cup-out against Dresden. Gladbach on the other hand shot their CL-frustration off their chest in the last game. We still believe that Leipzig will keep the upper hand on Wednesday. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
