Borussia Monchengladbach vs Stuttgart - Bundesliga prediction
- Title : Borussia Monchengladbach vs Stuttgart - Bundesliga prediction
Monchengladbach hosts Stuttgart in a clash of two teams from the middle of Bundesliga standings
This is a duel of the 11th and 12th place teams of the Bundesliga standings but their quality is not as close as the standings show.
Monchengladbach has won three of their last four matches in the league and regrouped after the bad start of the season. They are currently at 3 wins, 3 losses, and 1 draw but the upcoming match against Stuttgart will add another three points to their record.
Monchengladbach is coming off two consecutive wins against Champions League participants. In the last round, they defeated Wolfsburg 2-1 on the road and in the previous round Borussia Dortmund by 1-0 at home.
The start of the season in Monchengladbach was not as expected, although they won a point against Bayern Munich in the opening round, as they lost three times in the next four matches.
Not all injured players have returned yet, but the personnel situation is much better comparing to the beginning of the season.
In the last Bundesliga round, Stuttgart broke a series of five matches without a victory with the W over Hoffenheim. They celebrated at the start against Greuther Furth, so in the next five games, they drew twice and lost three times.
Stuttgart is traveling to Monchengladbach after a 1-4 loss in the Cup against the second division team Sandhausen.
- Stuttgart have 12 unavailable players for this match due to injuries
- The last time Monchengladbach lost at home was in May this year against Stuttgart
- Eight of the last ten head-to-head matches have seen at least three goals
- Monchengladbach has scored 17 while Stuttgart 8 goals in the last ten head-to-head matches
Regardless of Stuttgart’s form, Monchengladbach is the absolute favorite in this duel and will show that from the very beginning of the game. Last season Stuttgart managed to win in Monchengladbach which is a motive plus for the hosts for revenge.
Another reason why Monchengladbach is expected to dominate the game is the fact that the guests have 12 players on their injury list. Much better teams would struggle with that number of unavailable players, so the shorthanded Stuttgart will not stand any chances against Monchengladbach.
Over 5.5 goals
