RB Leipzig will be looking to continue their fine run of form in the German top-flight this weekend, and could move to the top of the league with a win against Borussia Monchengladbach.
Many believed that the title race in Germany was an open and shut case a couple of weeks ago, but Bayern Munich’s dip in results has opened the door for a potential title race with RB Leipzig. However, in order for the title to race to continue for the remainder of the season, Leipzig will likely need to go on a long winning run to keep pace on the leaders. Leipzig have shown recently that they are capable of doing that, as they have won their last four in the top-flight. However, this will be a bigger challenge for them this weekend, as they are coming up against a side with proven Champions League quality. Leipzig are just two points behind the leaders, and moved into that position with a 3-0 win away from home against Hertha Berlin last weekend.
Champions League qualification remains the aim for Borussia Monchengladbach this season, but they could have a big challenge on their hands to achieve that. They haven’t won in four league games, and a gap of nine points has opened up between themselves and the sides in third and fourth position in the league table. There is also a three point gap between themselves and the Europa League places. Gladbach could also moved further down the league standings if they are beaten this weekend, as Freiburg are just two points behind them at present. There needs to be a response from Monchengladbach following their 2-1 home defeat against Mainz last weekend.
RB Leipzig vs Borussia Monchengladbach Head To Head
Despite these sides being among the elite in Germany, they haven’t met on many occasions in the past ten years. This will only be the 10th meeting between the sides in the Bundesliga, with Leipzig having won on five occasions. However, Monchengladbach won the meeting earlier in the season 1-0, which was their first Bundesliga win against Leipzig.
RB Leipzig vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
A lot has changed since Gladbach’s win against Leipzig back in October, and this could be the weekend that their feint Champions League hopes are ended. The home side should get the win that they need to keep pace with Bayern Munich.
