Arminia Bielefeld is welcoming Borussia M’gladbach to Schuco-Arena in round 14 in German Bundesliga.
Arminia is one of the weakest teams in the Bundesliga this season, and they have won only 2 of their last 12 games while losing 9 of those 12 games. With only 10 points, 9 scored goals, and 23 conceded goals, Arminia is now in 16th place, which is the relegation playoffs spot. In their last Bundesliga game, Arminia was playing against Schalke on the road, and they were the better team with 55% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 72% of the correct passes. Arminia was the better team in this game, but everyone is better than Schalke this season. Arminia has won this match 0-1. Doan and Klos are the leading goalscorers for Arminia with 2 goals each, and they each have 1 assist as well. Voglsammer, Niemann, and Nilsson are all injured for Arminia. After winning Bundesliga 2 last season, I’m sure no one in Arminia expected this season to be easy for them, but they have a good chance of staying in Bundesliga, but it will be a tough season for them.
Borussia is wildly inconsistent this season, and after 6 games without a win, M’gladbach has won their last game in the DFB Pokal. In the Bundesliga standings, Borussia is in 8th place with 18 points, 24 scored goals, and 22 conceded goals. Offensively, M’gladbach is solid, but their defense is not good, and that is their biggest problem at the moment. M’gladbach hasn’t won any of their last 4 Bundesliga games, and they were hosting Hoffenheim in their latest game. Borussia has had 47% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 81% of the correct passes. After leading 1-0 at halftime, Borussia has conceded 2 goals and a red card in the second half, and Borussia M’gladbach ended up losing this match 1-2. Stindl is the leading goalscorer for Borussia M’gladbach with 8 goals, while Hofmann added 4 assists. Bensebaini is the only injured player for Borussia, while Thuram is suspended because of the red card. Borussia M’gladbach got lucky in the Champions League, and they have advanced to the next stage, but they will need to improve their game greatly if they want to beat Manchester City. As far as Bundesliga goes, Borussia can still get back into the Champions League race, but the competition is strong.
Arminia has had some success against Borussia, but not much. Arminia is one of the weakest teams in Bundesliga this season, and while M’gladbach is in bad form, they are still the better team here. I will take Borussia and goals for a nice plus money in this one.
