Borussia Monchengladbach vs RB Leipzig preview, betting tips and prediction: Leipzig to get crucial away victory
Borussia Monchengladbach have faced 51 teams in the Bundesliga and only failed to beat one.
BETFRED HAVE YOU COVERED
That one? RB Leipzig. Sure, they’ve only played three times. It kind of shows how misleading statistics can be. It also implies that Leipzig are a real bogey team for Gladbach when in fact we’re talking about two defeats and one draw for the Foals. So will Gladbach end this hoodoo – for lack of a better, or more enjoyable, word – this weekend when they host RB Leipzig?
They’re coming off the back of a 2-0 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt. Or should we say high-flying Frankfurt, the Eagles currently occupying a Champions League spot. But, as you’re probably aware from glancing at the Bundesliga table, the race for European places is insanely tight. Leipzig are in fifth, one point ahead of Borussia Dortmund and Gladbach. It’s a European place six-pointer.
GRAB THIS GREAT OFFER!!
Interestingly, there could be two Englishmen involved in the clash. Reece Oxford has rejoined Gladbach on loan from West Ham after his parent club recalled him earlier in the season. He made four appearances for the Foals before returning to London. He could face off against Ademola Lookman. The Everton striker has gone to Leipzig for a short-term loan in a bid to find his shooting boots. However, the key performer this weekend could be Naby Keita. If the Liverpool-bound midfielder recovers from injury then he could be the difference here.
