Team news Borussia Moenchengladbach

Borussia Moenchengladbach started the season with much higher ambitions. The current 13th place in the table is a big disappointment for Borussia. But with a win against RB Leipzig, the team can return to the top ten. The chance for Gladbach to qualify for a European Cup place is as good as out of the question, but they will do everything to be as high up as possible at the end of the season: The distribution of television money plays a decisive role in this.

Coach Adi Huetter’s team is also far more capable than its current position in the table suggests and will try to sell itself well in front of the home crowd despite a few absentees.

Team news RB Leipzig

It is a difficult situation for RB Leipzig. On the one hand, a point win against Borussia Moenchengladbach is a must to keep the chance of Champions League qualification alive. On the other hand, the Leipziger have to play the immensely important Europa League semi-final second leg in Glasgow just three days later. Their opponents, Rangers, were already allowed to play their league match on Sunday and can therefore regenerate one day longer than Leipzig. There is no travel stress for the Rangers either. That is a clear advantage for the Scots.

Making it to the final and possibly winning the European Cup would be the greatest success in the club’s history. Leipzig will therefore not give 100 per cent full throttle in this match. They will spare their regular players as much as possible. It is to be expected that there will be some unfamiliar faces on the RB side in this match. A point win would be enough for RB Leipzig to regain fourth place in the table from Freiburg.

Head-2-Head and statistics

  • In 11 games against each other, RB has won 7 times, Gladbach only once.
  • In 4 of the last 5 encounters, at least 4 goals were scored.
  • Leipzig is the best team in the second half of the season
  • Leipzig have won 5 in a row away from home in all competitions
  • Both teams have yet to draw 0-0 this season.

Our betting tip for Borussia Moenchengladbach vs RB Leipzig

Of course, RB Leipzig would win this game under normal circumstances. But their main focus is clearly on Thursday night’s game in Scotland. And that is where Borussia Moenchengladbach’s chance lies. We believe that Gladbach can prevent a defeat against RB Leipzig and therefore bet on Gladbach +0.5, i.e. double chance. You can find this betting offer with odds around 2.1 at Interwetten, among others.

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
