Borussia M’gladbach is hosting VfL Wolfsburg at Borussia-Park in round 4 in the German Bundesliga.
After starting the season with a loss and a draw, M’gladbach has finally won a game in Bundesliga. In their latest Bundesliga match against Koln on the road, M’gladbach was the dominant team with 60% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. With 2 goals in the first half and 1 more goal in the second half, M’gladbach has won this match 1-3. M’gladbach is now in 11th place in the standings with 4 points, 4 scored goals, and 5 conceded goals. Thuram, Stindl, Lainer, and Plea have each scored 1 goal for M’gladbach so far this season. Benes, Lazaro, Poulsen, Villalba, and Zakaria are all injured for Borussia M’gladbach at the moment. The good news for M’gladbach is that their best players Plea, Thuram, and Traore are ready and will be in the starting lineup for this match. M’gladbach will also be playing in the Champions League against Inter next week. M’gladbach is a great team, but I think they lack some depth to stay consistent for most of the season, and now with the Champions League added to their plate, I think M’gladbach will have a tough time in Bundesliga.
Wolfsburg has 3 draws in Bundesliga so far, and they got knocked out of the Europa League after losing to AEK. With only 3 points from 3 games, 1 scored goal and 1 conceded goal, Wolfsburg is in 15th place in the standings. Brekalo is the only goalscorer for Wolfsburg as of right now. William, Mbabu, Pongracic, and Joao are all injured, and they will not play in this game. In their latest Bundesliga game against Augsburg at home, Wolfsburg was the dominant team with 64% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 12 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. Both teams played good defense, but Wolfsburg couldn’t finish any of their chances, and this match ended in a 0-0 draw. I like Wolfsburg, and they can play fantastic soccer when they put their minds to it, but it seems that all the injuries have impacted this team in a negative way. I don’t think Wolfsburg will have any problems staying in Bundesliga, as a matter of fact, I think they will be fighting for the Europa League once again this season.
The trends are on Wolfsburg’s side in this matchup, and M’gladbach might be the better team here, but M’gladbach is playing in the Champions League next week, and for that reason, I think they could rest some players. Wolfsburg has had success against M’gladbach on the road in the past, and I will side with them once again. I think Wolfsburg gets their first win of the season in this game.
