Borussia M’gladbach is hosting Werder Bremen at Borussia-Park in round 17 in the German Bundesliga.
Borussia hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games, but they have broken their 3-game winning streak with a draw this past weekend. During their last 4 games, Borussia has scored 11 goals while conceding 4 goals. In the Bundesliga standings, Borussia M’gladbach is now in 8th place with 25 points, 30 scored goals, and 26 conceded goals, which is too many for a team that wants to reach the Champions League spot. In their last Bundesliga game, Borussia was playing against Stuttgart on the road, and they have had only 40% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. Borussia M’gladbach was leading twice in this game, but Stuttgart tied the score in the 96th minute from the penalty spot. The final score of this game was 2-2. Stindl is the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 9 goals, while Hofmann added 4 goals and 6 assists. Lazaro, Quizera, Reitz, and Scally are injured, while Thuram is still suspended because of the red card. There is still enough time for Borussia to get to the Champions League spot, and they need to stay in good form before the Champions League picks up again in February.
Werder has been doing well as of late, and they have lost only 1 of their last 5 games. In their last 4 Bundesliga games, Werder has been solid with 4 scored goals and 3 conceded goals, and they have gained some distance between themselves and the relegation zone. Werder is now in 12th place with 18 points. Offensively, Werder is averaging just over 1 scored goal per game, and they have scored 19 goals in total so far this season. in their last Bundesliga game, Werder was hosting Augsburg last weekend, and they have had 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. Werder has been playing well, and with two late goals in the 84th and the 87th minute, Werder has won this match 2-0. Fullkrug has scored 4 goals for Werder so far this season, while Bittencourt added 3 goals. Augustinsson has added 4 assists. Erras, Gross, Augustinsson, and Fullkrug are all injured for Werder at this time. Werder had to fight really hard to stay in Bundesliga after last season, but I think they will be better this season, and they will stay in Bundesliga for another season.
M’gladbach has lost only 1 game at home so far this season. the trends are even here, but Borussia M’gladbach is the better team here, and they are on a nice roll. I’m taking Borussia M’gladbach at home.
