Borussia M’gladbach vs. RB Leipzig Betting Tips
Borussia M’gladbach will host RB Leipzig for their Matchday 21 clash just days after their Europa League clash against Fiorentina on Thursday, hoping to continue the fine streak and beat the rivals who currently struggle for consistency, which we’ll back at 8/5 with William Hill
Die Fohlen have indeed picked up their form in 2017 as we’ve seen them a draw and four consecutive wins across competitions, and although we might see some tired legs on the day we do believe they will come into the match strong in need of points to catch up with the top of Bundesliga table. Despite their woes throughout the season, they have been rather good in front of the home fans (losing just three matches there across competitions) and it really is hard backing against them at this point.
Leipzig, by contrast, have been in a slump and an unpredictable form since mid-December and a poor performance against Hamburger SV (0-3 home loss) has made it three losses and two wins in their last five Bundesliga outings. They thus lag seven points behind 1st placed Bayern Munich and it will surely not have done wonders for the team morale.
The home side have largely improved at the back and they are yet to concede a goal in February (with three clean sheets so far), and we might see RB Leipzig struggles in the final third continue on the day. This promises to be a low-scoring contest for important points and we’ll thus go for Under 2.5 goals FT at 4/5 with BetVictor
Borussia M’gladbach vs. RB Leipzig Stats
The teams have met only once so far, and we’ve seen the sides share the points (1-1 draw) in their September clash at Red Bull Arena, as Fabian Johnson pulled a late equalizer and saved a point for M’gladbach. While we will be in for a similar matchup, we do feel die Fohlen will now have what it takes to bag the points in front of the home fans.
We’ll also try a correct score prediction sticking our necks out for a 1-0 home win, as we do feel one goal could decide the tight contest and the longshot looking the best value in the market at 15/2 with bet365
