B. Monchengladbach vs FC Koln Prediction & Betting tips
The first Bundesliga starts after long weeks of waiting for the new season and holds on the first day some attractive games for us ready. In this article, we will discuss the Rhine derby between Borussia Mönchengladbach and 1. FC Köln, which will be kicked off at 17:00 on Sunday (20.08.) In Borussia Park. Despite the home advantage of the foals, the Geisböcke should not be underestimated, because the preparation in Cologne, in contrast to the Gladbachern without a single defeat.

B. Monchengladbach :
Borussia Mönchengladbach can look back on a very well-worn last season. It was only when Dieter Hecking took over the sporting management that the success came again and the foals landed in the ninth place, which for the first time in the last five years was not enough for an international competition. The preparation for the new season was more like a downhill and downhill ride, with the bottoms clearly longer. However, some international top teams were represented among the sparring partners. So followed a draw against Leeds (1: 1) first two 1-2 defeats in Nice and Nuremberg. Only in the home game against Malaga did it reach a tight 2-1 success, before the third defeat (1: 2) in Leicester from the last five test matches were collected.
The first compulsive game of the season was completed by the foals last weekend. In the first round of the DFB Cup, the Hecking-Elf met the regional rivals RW Essen and scarcely missed a shame. In the half-time break Gladbach was still a goal behind. After the break, however, the Borussia proved morality and turned up properly. After the Hoffmann and Raphael goals, the Gladbachers won 2: 1 in the last race and were quite right in the second round. In the new Bundesliga season Dieter Hecking goes with some staff. Among other things, Kolodziejczak, Strobl, Oxford and Drmic are subject to injury.
In contrast to the Gladbachers, 1. FC Köln looks back on the most successful season of recent years and ended up in fifth place, which is entitled to participate in the Europa League. The anticipation in Cologne for the new season is therefore huge, even if with Anthony Modeste the topscorer of the last season left the club to China. In the preparations the Geisböcke remained without defeat, came in the last five tests against Uerdingen (0: 0), Braunschweig (2: 2), Bologna (1: 1), Linz (2: 2) and Steinbach (1: 1) Respectively.
It was only in the DFB Cup that the success came again. Against the Oberligisten Leher TS the team of coach Peter Stöger prevailed as expected. Already at half time the Effzeh led with two goals and increased in the second run on the 5-0 final. In the scoreline list also included Jhon Cordoba, who was sued by the Ligakon competitor from Mainz in the summer break and should replace modestes if possible. The personnel situation is relatively relaxed for Stöger. Osako is already training again, but will not be an option at the weekend. Thus, only the failures of goalkeepers Kessler and Müller remain. However, since Stammtorhüter Timo Horn is ready for action, Stöger can relax here.
