Borussia M’gladbach is hosting FC Union Berlin at Borussia-Park in round 2 in the German Bundesliga.
M’gladbach is a good team, and they kept their most important players, but they haven’t started the season in the best way. M’gladbach was playing against Borussia Dortmund on the road, and they have had 53% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Borussia Dortmund was just too strong offensively for M’gladbach’s defense to handle, while M’gladbach couldn’t find a way to Dortmund’s net. M’gladbach has lost this match 3-0. M’gladbach ended last season in 4th place, and they will be playing in the Champions League this season. Benes, Embolo, Lazaro, Poulsen, and Villalba are all injured, and they will miss this match. M’gladbach might have a good starting lineup, but all these injuries have impacted their depth, and with that, their game. M’gladbach is still waiting on their first goal of the season, but they have a lot of firepowers, and it’s only a matter of time before M’gladbach wins their first game. M’gladbach kept their coach from last season, and it’s a good thing they did because he did a fantastic job, and he made a competitive team from M’gladbach.
Union Berlin has been decent in the preseason, and they have scored at least 1 goal in 9 of their last 10 games. Union has ended last season far from the relegation zone, in 11th place, but they haven’t started this season well. Union Berlin was facing Augsburg at home in their first game of the season, and they were the better team in this match with 58% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 81% of the correct passes. Union conceded a goal in the 40th minute, but they were able to tie the result in the 75th minute. After this moment, Union lost their focus, and they conceded 2 more goals, in the 82nd and the 89th minute of the game. Union Berlin has lost this match 1-3. Bulter is the only goalscorer for Union Berlin with 1 goal so far, while Lenz added 1 assist. Ujah is the only injured player for Union Berlin as of right now. Union Berlin is a decent team, and even though they stayed far away from the relegation zone, I don’t think they will be able to do the same this season as well. Union certainly has the quality to avoid relegation, but it might be harder than it was last season.
M'gladbach and Union have played only 3 times against each other, with M’gladbach winning 2 games, while Union won 1 game. M’gladbach is the better team here by far, and I see them getting back on the winning track in this game. I will stick with M’gladbach at home in this match.
