Borussia Monchengladbach vs Cologne Match Preview
Borussia Monchengladbach are still among four clubs with a realistic chance of claiming this season’s Bundesliga title and can boost their chances by beating Cologne on Sunday.
Although it is ominous for the other trio of contenders that Bayern Munich have now gone top of the table, there is only three points covering the leaders, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Gladbach.
A 2-2 draw for Gladbach away to Leipzig last week was not a bad result but it could have been so much better – they led 2-0 and were still in front when striker Alassane Plea was sent off, eventually conceding a late equaliser.
But the main strength of Marco Rose’s side has been their home form with 25 points collected from a possible 30 at Borussia-Park, which spells bad news for a Cologne outfit who are not the best of travellers.
Cologne have improved greatly since mid-December with five wins in their last six matches to pull away from the relegation zone, but four of those victories were at home and when they took to the road most recently they were thrashed 5-1 by Dortmund.
We do not think it will be so emphatic this time, albeit Gladbach look a good bet to sustain their challenge for Bundesliga glory here and we are backing the Foals to prevail narrowly.
