Koln vs Monchengladbach Predictions and Betting Tips
Koln vs Monchengladbach Key Stats:
- Gladbach have won zero out of three away games against bottom-half teams this season.
- Koln are unbeaten against top-half opposition at home during the current campaign.
- Koln are the fifth-highest home scorers in the division, while Gladbach are the sixth-lowest scorers on the road.
Out of form
The hosts come into this fixture out of form as far as the Bundesliga is concerned. They are unbeaten in two having drawn with both Mainz and Union Berlin, which is quite positive given that those two are both in the top half, though Steffen Baumgart’s men are without a win in five league matches.
There’s another way of looking at it, though. While the Billy Goats are winless in five Bundesliga games, they are unbeaten in six at home this season, gaining positive results against a handful of top-half teams such as Bayer Leverkusen, Union Berlin and RB Leipzig, all of whom currently reside in the top six.
Another step in the right direction
When they lost to Hertha Berlin back in October, it looked as though Gladbach had moved back in the wrong direction, though Saturday’s visitors have since got themselves back on the up, losing none of their last three, two of which they’ve won, and they arrive here with their tails up having battered Furth last time out, scoring four and conceding zero on route to victory.
Playing on the road hasn’t brought Adi Hütter’s men much joy this season, as they’ve won just one out of six away from the comforts of Borussia Park, but recent performances have been steady. The Gladbach rearguard has conceded no more than a single goal in any of the last four road games, which tells us that the visitors aren’t easy to get at.
Koln vs Monchengladbach Predictions
For some time, under several managers, the visitors have been frustrating in that they’ve thrived against the stronger teams, often defying the odds, but when the pressure is on to produce against the so called lesser sides, they often come up short. Such has been the case away from home this season, with them losing three out of three against teams currently in the bottom half.
In contrast, Koln’s home record against top-half teams is impressive, so the early odds probably aren’t a fair enough reflection of the hosts’ chances here. Thus, a play on the home win, with the insurance that ‘Draw No Bet’ provides, offers some value.
