Borussia M’gladbach is hosting RB Leipzig at Borussia-Park in a derby match in round 6 in the German Bundesliga.
Borussia is playing in the Champions League this season, and after getting a draw in their game against Inter, Borussia had a chance against Real Madrid to get their first win. Borussia was playing outstanding soccer in the first half of that game, and the first 20 minutes of the second half. In the 58th minute, Borussia was leading 2-0, but they were forced to defend from that moment, and Real Madrid was able to tie the result. This match ended in a 2-2 draw, and Borussia has gotten another point in the Champions League. In their last Bundesliga game, Borussia was playing against Mainz on the road, and they were decent in that game with 60% of ball possession, 12 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. M’gladbach was losing 2-1 at half time, but with 2 goals in the second half, Borussia has won this match 2-3. With 8 points, 8 scored goals, and conceded goals, Borussia is in 6th place in the Bundesliga standings. Hofmann and Stindl have each scored 2 goals for Borussia M’gladbach so far this season, while Hofmann also added 4 assists. Poulsen is injured, while Beyer is in quarantine, and Zakaria is still not fit enough to play. Borussia is playing solid soccer in this early season, but they are still struggling in the attacking end, and once they get that going, everything will be much easier.
Leipzig is at the top of the table in Bundesliga with 13 points, 12 scored goals, and only 3 conceded goals, and they are the only undefeated team left in Bundesliga. Leipzig has won their first game in the Champions League against Basaksehir, but they got demolished against Manchester United earlier this week. Leipzig has lost this match 5-0 on the road. In their last Bundesliga game against Hertha at home last weekend, Leipzig was the better team with 67% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 85% of the correct passes. After conceding a goal in the 8th minute, Leipzig has tied the score in the 11th minute. With another goal in the 77th minute from a penalty spot and Leipzig has deservedly won this match 2-1. Forsberg, Poulsen, and Angelino have each scored 2 goals for Leipzig so far this season, while Olmo added 3 assists. Hartman, Laimer, and Klostermann are all injured, and they will miss this game for Leipzig. Leipzig is playing great soccer in Bundesliga this season, but we are yet to see how their defeat to Manchester United will affect their game.
M’gladbach has never beaten Leipzig in the 8 games they played against each other. M’gladbach hasn’t lost any of their last 7 games, while Leipzig is on a 3-game winning streak in Bundesliga. Both teams are scoring a solid amount of goals, but Leipzig is the better team here, and I will side with them in this game.
