Borussia Monchengladbach vs Leipzig Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
German Bundesliga | Borussia-Park | 30th August 19:30
Borussia Monchengladbach host Leipzig at Borussia Park Stadium on friday evening . Anything could happen here so betting on goals is my approach with two picks alongside a correct score tip.
The Foals are unbeaten in three competitive matches under new manager Marco Rose. Borussia Monchengladbach beat Sandhausen 1-0 in the German Cup before a 0-0 home draw against Schalke in the Bundesliga.
Their first league win came at Mainz last weekend, the 3-0 victory secured with goals to Stefan Lainer, Alassane Pléa and Breel Embolo. New signing Marcus Thuram has started all three games but could be under pressure from Embolo. Borussia Monchengladbach won 12 straight home games in the Bundesliga from April 2018 to January 2019. They haven’t tasted victory in front of their fans in their last nine home matches.
Leipzig have enjoyed a perfect start to the season under new manager Julian Nagelsmann. Osnabueck were defeated 3-2 in the German Cup before a 4-0 win at Union Berlin and 2-1 home win against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. Marcel Sabitzer has been one of the main beneficiaries under Nagelsmann, the forward with three goals and three assists in three games. New signing Christopher Nkunku has been getting game time and Nordi Mukiele has been doing a great job in defence.
Leipzig often see high scoring games on the road, with over 3.5 goals occurring in five of their last seven competitive away matches in all competitions. Leipzig have also seen BTTS & over 2.5 goals in six of their last seven competitive away matches in all competitions.
These clubs have met on six occasions with Leipzig holding a 4-0 advantage with two draws. Leipzig won both Bundesliga matches last season, winning 2-0 at home with a Timo Werner brace and 2-1 in Monchengladbach thanks to two goals to Marcel Halstenberg. Borussia Monchengladbach have injury concerns in central midfield and are adjusting to a new manager. They are likely to get sucked into an open match here which could result in plenty of goals.
Leipzig have won all three matches to start to new season. Nagelsmann will also need time but has a much better squad at his disposal than Borussia Monchengladbach.
