Borussia Monchengladbach will be back in front of their home fans this weekend, as they still chase a first league win of the season. Leipzig will be looking for a fourth league win of the campaign, which could lift them to the top of the standings.
It has been a troubling start to the new season for Borussia Monchengladbach, as they have gone their opening four matches without picking up a victory. That start to the season currently sees them sit down in 14th overall. A defeat in front of their home fans on Saturday could see them end the weekend in the bottom three spots in the league standings.
Gladbach at least avoided a third straight defeat in their first match after the international break last weekend, as they battled to a 3-3 draw against Darmstadt away from home. That draw looked incredibly unlikely after they went 3-0 down after 33 minutes. However, goals from Theoson Siebatcheu, Florian Neuhaus, and Tomas Cvancara rescued a point.
Leipzig have enjoyed an excellent start to the new season, as they have bounced back following defeat on the opening day by winning each of their last three fixtures. A fourth straight win this weekend could take them to the top of the standings if results go their way.
Leipzig were very professional on Saturday, as they eased to a straightforward 3-0 home victory over Augsburg. Xavi Simons opened the scoring after just six minutes, before goals from Lois Openda and David Raum before the half time break effectively secured maximum points. Leipzig ended the match having registered six shots on target, and they will likely need more in the final third this weekend.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs RB Leipzig Head to Head
Each of the last six meetings between these two sides have been won by the team with home field advantage. Over that period, Gladbach have recorded three straight wins, which includes a 3-0 victory in this exact fixture last season. Leipzig are winless away from home against Gladbach since a 3-1 victory in August 2019.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs RB Leipzig Prediction
The record of home wins in this fixture is exceptionally interesting, but it appears hard to support Gladbach based on the start to the season that they have made. Therefore, the most interesting betting angle is on Leipzig to claim maximum points on the road.
