Dusseldorf vs B. Monchengladbach Prediction & Betting tips
Borussia Mönchengladbach plays an away game against Fortuna Düsseldorf on Saturday afternoon. The PhD student has already surprised several teams this season. Can they also steal Gladbach points?
Just before the international break, Fortuna Düsseldorf fell by no less than 5-2. During a visit to VfL Wolfsburg, Düsseldorf completely relinquished the game in the first fifteen minutes of the second half. Three goals against shortly after each other made F95 in fact a lost game. However, there is little going on in the rankings for coach Friedhelm Funkel’s team. The lead on sixteenth place, with eight games to play, is no less than eleven points. Fortuna seems to extend his stay at the highest level by one year.
“Borussia Mönchengladbach is especially offensive in strength,” Funkel said on the weekly press talk. “We will have to defend better than we have done in recent weeks,” said the coach, who is not performing great defensively this season with his team. Düsseldorf had fifty goals in 26 matches. Dodi Lukebakio, the man responsible for the goals at Düsseldorf, will not be there on Saturday. The striker was suspended for a match after his fifth yellow card.
Borussia Mönchengladbach has lost the top form of earlier this season in recent weeks. The team that was second in the rankings this season, has since dropped to position four. Of the last six competition duels, Die Fohlen won only one. Before the international break, Gladbach, in his own Borussia Park, did not go further than a 1-1 draw against SC Freiburg. The team did not create too many opportunities, against the defensively strong visitors. They were not entitled to much more.
“Fortuna will play compact and if they capture the ball they will move forward quickly,” Gladbach coach Dieter Hecking looked ahead to the upcoming game at the Thursday press conference. “We will have to prepare for that,” says Hecking, who can have a fairly complete group. Raffael attacker is also available again, although it would be logical for the Brazilian to start on the bench. Alassane Plea is probably the starting striker.
