Wolfsburg – Borussia M’gladbach
Wolfsburg hosts Borussia M’gladbach in a game from the 15th week of the German Bundesliga. That’s a pretty great clash because the leader in the league faces a team which is eager to improve. Let’s take a look.
Borussia M’gladbach are leaders in the Bundesliga right now with 31 points won. They are just one point ahead of the second RB Leipzig, so they would like to keep their position as a leader.
In their last five games in the Bundesliga Borussia M’gladbach are almost flawless – four wins and just one defeat suffered against Union Berlin. Can they actually fight for the title? This is a good question. We will see, we guess.
In the previous round Borussia M’gladbach achieved a great win when they faced the champion Bayern Munich at the Borussia-Park. Ivan Perisic opened the score for the visitors, but in the last half an hour of the match the hosts scored twice. Rami Bensebaini equalised for M’gladbach, while it was him again to score the winner from a penalty kick in the injury time.
Borussia’s manager Marco Rose has to deal with some problems before the next game. Denis Zakaria is suspended, while Keanan Bennetts and Torben Musel are injured.
Wolfsburg are desperate to return at the Top 4 of the Bundesliga. They were there, but a poor form made them lose some positions in the standings. Right now the Wolves are 9th in the league with 20 points.
Let’s be honest here – Wolfsburg’s current form is terrible. In their last five games they won once, but suffered four losses. If the manager Oliver Glasner doesn’t find a way to fix this, he might be packing his stuff very soon.
In the previous round Wolfsburg lost again. They visited Freiburg and had a good chance to win at least a point, but the hosts scored a winning goal in the 85th minute.
Because of Wolfsburg’s poor form, Borussia M’gladbach are entering this game as favourites. The question is – can the Wolves to fix their form? We will see.
