Borussia M’gladbach is hosting FC Augsburg at Borussia-Park in round 8 in the German Bundesliga.
Borussia is playing well in Bundesliga, and while they were unlucky in the Champions League, they are doing well there as well. In Bundesliga, Borussia is in 7th place with 11 points, 12 scored goals, and 12 conceded goals. Borussia was playing against Leverkusen on the road in their last Bundesliga game, and it was a beauty. M’gladbach has had only 41% of ball possession, but 6 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 75% of the correct passes. Borussia M’gladbach was winning twice in this game, but Leverkusen turned things around in the second half. Borussia has lost this match 4-3. Stindl has scored 4 goals for Borussia M’gladbach so far this season, while Hofmann added 2 goals and 4 assists. Hofmann is injured, while Plea has Coronavirus, and they will both miss this game. The schedule is good for M’gladbach in Bundesliga, but they have a tough schedule in the Champions League while two of their best players are injured. Borussia is far from their form from the last season, but they have a good team, and I see them in the battle for the Champions League this season as well.
It looks like Augsburg is running out of luck, and they have won only 1 of their last 4 Bundesliga games while losing the other 3. Despite their bad form, Augsburg is in 10th place with 10 points, 9 scored goals, and 10 conceded goals so far this season. Hahn has scored 3 goals for Augsburg, while Vargas and Caligiuri added 2 goals. Moravek, Jensen, and Sarenren are all injured for Augsburg. Defensively, Augsburg has been terrible in their last 4 games, and they have conceded 9 goals while scoring 4 goals. In their last match against Hertha at home, Augsburg has had 47% of ball possession in that game, 1 shot on goal, 2 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. As I’ve said earlier, Augsburg’s defense is terrible as of late, and they have lost this match 0-3. Augsburg has started this season well, but it was clear that form won’t last for long because Augsburg doesn’t play good soccer, and they are mostly trying to focus on the defense. There were a few good additions to the team in the offseason, but they are yet to start playing like a real team. I believe Augsburg will avoid the relegation, but that’s about it from them.
Augsburg hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against M’gladbach, and the trends are on Borussia’s side. Borussia M’gladbach was dominant against Werder at home, and I think they will get another win here.
