RB Leipzig is hosting Borussia M’gladbach at Red Bull Arena in a derby match of round 23 in the German Bundesliga.
Leipzig is in good form, and they are still on Bayern’s tail in Bundesliga. Leipzig has won 5 of their last 6 games, and they are now in 2nd place with 47 points, 40 scored goals, and only 18 conceded goals which makes Leipzig the best defensive team in the league. Leipzig has lost to Liverpool in the Champions League, but they have beaten Hertha in their last Bundesliga game last weekend. Leipzig has had 53% of ball possession in that game, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. I know it seems Leipzig has had a fantastic game, but it wasn’t their best this season. Leipzig has won this match 0-3 for another 3 precious points in Bundesliga. Sabitzer is now the leading goalscorer for Leipzig with 5 goals, while Nkunku, Forsberg, Poulsen, Orban, and Angelino each added 4 goals. Dani Olmo has added 6 assists for Leipzig. Laimer and Szoboszlai are both injured. Leipzig definitely has the quality to win the title in Bundesliga, but they can’t afford to drop points because Bayern will be hard to stop.
M’gladbach is a good team with great offensive firepower, but they haven’t won in their last 4 games, while losing 3 of those 4 games. In their Champions League game against Manchester City at home, M’gladbach has had a few good chances, but they ended up losing this match 0-2. M’gladbach is sinking deeper and deeper in Bundesliga, and they are now in low 8th place in the standings with 33 points, 38 scored goals, and 33 conceded goals so far. Borussia M’gladbach was hosting Main in their last Bundesliga game, and they were the dominant team with 69% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a decent 83% o the correct passes. Despite being the dominant team in this game, Borussia was losing twice, and the second time they weren’t able to get back. Borussia M’gladbach has lost this game 1-2. Stindl has scored 10 goals for Borussia M’gladbach so far, and he is in good form but it’s not helping Borussia M’gladbach. Hofmann added 4 goals and 9 assists. Quiezera and Musel are the only two injuries players for Borussia M’gladbach. I think that their Champions League run is over, but M’gladbach is still playing in the DFB Pokal, and maybe that is their ticket to the Champions League if they don’t end up in the Champions League spot in Bundesliga.
M’gladbach has beaten Leipzig only once so far, and it was at home. With Leipzig still in the title race, and being in much better form than the M’gladbach, I think Leipzig will get a nice win here. This could be a tight game, but I think Leipzig will prevail.
