Borussia M’gladbach is hosting FC Union Berlina at Borussia-Park in round 29 of German Bundesliga. 

Borussia has started well when the season restarted, but unfortunately, Borussia has not won any of their last 2 games in Bundesliga. Borussia is still in the Champions League spot, 4th place with 53 points, but Leverkusen is just behind them with the same number of points. Offensively, Borussia has been solid with 53 scored goals, while their defense has also been decent with 34 conceded goals. In their last Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen on the road earlier this week, Borussia has had 56% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 84% of the correct passes. Both teams were playing good defense in this match ad it ended in a 0-0 draw. Alassane Plea has been M’gladbach’s best player this season with 9 goals and 8 assists, while Thuram added 8 goals and 7 assists. Fabian Johnson is the only injured player for Borussia, and he will miss this match. Borussia has been at the top of Bundesliga for a short period of time, but those days are now gone. M’gladbach is a solid team, but their race for the Champions League has only started because Leverkusen is also a very good team.

Union Berlin is a weak team, but by some miracle, Union is in 13th place with 31 points, outside the relegation zone. Union hasn’t won any of their last 5 Bundesliga games, and they also haven’t won their game in the DFB Pokal. Union’s defense is terrible this season and they have conceded 48 goals in 28 games, while they scored 33 goals, which isn’t that bad, but not enough to compensate for bad defense. Andersson has scored 11 goals for Union Berlin this season, while Bulter added 7 goals. Trimmel added 7 assists. Gogia and Becker are both injured and will not be in the lineup for this match. In their midweek match in Bundesliga against Mainz at home, Union has had 40% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and low 69% of accurate passes. Mainz got ahead in the 13th minute, but Union was able to tie the game in the 33rd minute. The result didn’t change again, and the game ended in a 1-1 draw. Union Berlin is only 4 points away from the relegation zone, and the problem for them is that all of the teams still fighting for their lives are the same quality or higher, which is a problem for Union Berlin.

Union Berlin hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, while they lost 3 straight away games. M’gladbach is the better team here by far, but the odds of their win are not great. M’gladbach doesn’t have a choice but to attack if they don’t want to lose their Champions League spot, lucky for them, they are playing against one of the weakest teams in Bundesliga.
