RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach predictions for Saturday’s Bundesliga clash at Red Bull Arena, where the hosts will be looking for more joy after their mid-week win against Manchester City in the Champions League. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach Key Stats

  • Leipzig have collected an average of 2.14 points at home in the Bundesliga this term, compared to Gladbach’s average of 0.57 on the road.
  • Leipzig have scored an average of 3.00 goals per home game in the Bundesliga this season.
  • On their travels in the league, the visitors currently score an average of 0.85.

Out of sorts

Things went from bad to worse for Leipzig last time out in the league, as they lost away to Union Berlin. Following the departure of head coach Jesse Marsch, who failed to replicate the promise shown when in charge of Red Bull Salzburg, Domenico Tedesco has taken the reins, and his first job is to prevent Saturday’s hosts from losing four Bundesliga games on the spin, which may be slightly easier after his new team took a big confidence boost from a Champions League win over Man City on Tuesday evening.

In general, at home is where the Leipzig players have turned it on. OK, they lost to top-four chasers Leverkusen last time out, but there’s not a great deal of shame in that, especially as they’d previously won four home games on the spin. What’s more, a match against a visiting side that has floundered massively over the last couple of weeks presents the hosts with the perfect opportunity to bounce back.

Defensive disaster

Having seemingly tightened up at the back, Gladbach showcased no shortage of defensive weakness when losing to Koln a fortnight ago, and things got even worse last time out, as they conceded no less than six goals, all of which came during a crazy 37-minute spell, at home to Freiburg, showcasing a immense lack of solidity at the back.

The visitors will want to get back out there ASAP in order to try and put that rather embarrassing display behind them, though this match doesn’t exactly give them the perfect opportunity to do so. Leipzig can be rampant at home, while Adi Hutter’s men haven’t exactly made a habit of collecting positive results on the road, losing three five out of seven this term.

RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach Predictions

If you’re looking for a cast-iron home banker at a reasonable price this weekend, then look no further than RB Leipzig, who really do have a gilt-edged opportunity to regain the winning thread. The visitors have simply fallen to pieces defensively of late, while their overall efforts on the road this term don’t exactly point towards them making much headway at Red Bull Arena. As the stats above suggest, the hosts are superior and those punters interested in playing this fixture can make that superiority pay by siding with the home win, which at a shade of odds-on looks generously priced in the early betting.
