Borussia M’gladbach is welcoming Hoffenheim to Borussia-Park in round 13 in German Bundesliga.
Borussia is in a slump right now, and they haven’t won any of their last 5 games while losing 2 of those 5 games. During this stretch, Borussia has conceded at least 1 goal in each of those games, 11 goals in total, while they scored 8 goals. With 18 points, 23 scored goals, and 20 conceded goals in 12 games, Borussia M’gladbach is now in 8th place in the Bundesliga standing. In their latest Bundesliga game, Borussia was playing against Eintracht on the road, and they have had 61% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. After leading in the 14th minute, Borussia conceded 3 goals until the end of the first half. Borussia got lucky in the 81st minute when Eintracht conceded a red card, and Borussia was able to score 2 goals. The final score of this game was 3-3. Hofmann, Bensebaini, and Reitz are all injured for Borussia M’gladbach. Stindl has been in solid form, and he has scored 7 goals for Borussia so far this season. Hofmann added 4 assists. Borussia must get back on the winning track as soon as possible if they want to start the Champions League in good form, otherwise, they will get knocked out easily.
Hoffenheim has had a few solid games lately, but they have lost their last 2 straight games, both in Bundesliga. With only 12 points, Hoffenheim is now in lost 13th place in the Bundesliga standings. Hoffenheim’s offense is decent, but their defense is a disaster with 22 conceded goals in 12 games. Kramaric has scored 7 goals for Hoffenheim, but he is not even close to his form before the injury. Stafylidis, Bicakcic, Hubner, and Kaderabek are all injured for Hoffenheim at the moment. In their most recent Bundesliga game, Hoffenheim was playing against Leipzig at home, and they have had 44% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 78% of the correct passes. It was a tough game, but Hoffenheim’s defense wasn’t focused enough, and they conceded a goal in the 60th minute. Hoffenheim has lost this match 0-1. Hoffenheim is a good team, and when at their best, they can beat any team in Bundesliga, but with their current form on the defensive end, Hoffenheim is far from their best form.
M’gladbach hasn’t won any of their last 5 games, but they are still unbeaten at home this season. I think this will be a fun game with plenty of chances because both defenses are in terrible shape, and with that, I expect goals here.
