Prediction and odds for the game: Monchengladbach (evens) v Wolfsburg (5/2)
We are backing the draw at odds of 13/5
When: Tuesday, 16th June 2020, Kick-off 17:30
Where: Borussia Park
On Tuesday evening, Monchengladbach host Wolfsburg at Borussia Park, in what could be a vital clash in the race for the European spots in the Bundesliga.
The Foals are currently fourth-place in the table after a 2-1 defeat at champions Bayern Munich on Saturday evening. However, Marco Rose’s team could drop to fifth if Bayer Leverkusen avoids defeat at Schalke on Sunday evening.
In truth, the home side has endured mixed results since the restart of play last month. They have now won just one of their last five matches in the Bundesliga while suffering three defeats in the poor run of form. Their recent league outings have at least offered entertainment value, as seven of Gladbach’s last nine league matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
Even their usually strong home record has dipped of late in the Bundesliga, as the Foals have won just two of their previous five games. Their recent home games in the German top-flight have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in their last four matches. Both teams have also scored in Gladbach’s last six league games on home soil.
Wolfsburg have been one of Monchengladbach’s bogey teams of late. The Foals have beaten the Wolves just once in their previous eight meetings in all competitions.
The visitors have been highly unpredictable of late in the Bundesliga. Oliver Glasner’s team are sixth-place after an entertaining 2-2 draw at home to Freiburg last time out. The draw means that the Wolves are three points clear of seventh-place Hoffenheim in the race to seal the final European spot in the Bundesliga.
Wolfsburg’s recent league outings have been often than not been high-scoring of late, as four of their previous six league outings have produced over 2.5 goals. Judging by both sides recent history this could be another high-scoring encounter.
The Wolves have been away specialists of late in the German top-flight, as they are unbeaten in six matches on their travels while recording five wins in the process. Their attacking displays on the road have been impressive of late, as the visitors have scored at least twice in five of their previous six league matches on their travels. The Wolves attacking displays have contributed to over 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven away games in the Bundesliga.
Monchengladbach have struggled for results of late. However, attacking injuries and suspensions have not helped their cause. French forward Alassane Plea will return from injury for this game at least.
It is hard to know what to expect from the visitors. They do tend to be strong on the road though. We are backing the draw due to the unpredictability of the visitors and the home sides poor recent results. The other bet we fancy is the over 2.5 goals scored, as Gladbach will be boosted by Plea’s attacking return, while the visitors seem to be at their attacking best on the road.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 13/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/7. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
