Augsburg vs B. Monchengladbach Prediction & Tips
Augsburg come into this clash against Borussia Mönchengladbach having a mixed record in their last three matches (W1, E1, P1) despite all three seeing them win the first half 1-0. This is still an improvement, however, as Augsburg lost all three of their previous league matches, although they have yet to score more than 1.5 goals in six Bundesliga appearances.
Furthermore, only the first match of the season at Augsburg’s home in the Bundesliga saw the hosts maintain their unbeaten goal in this venue (W3, E3, P6), while an average of just one goal scored per league game at their stadium also highlights your offensive problems. However, scoring first tends to inspire Augsburg, being undefeated at WWK Arena in this top-flight campaign when they score the first goal (W3, E2).
Set to join Dortmund next season, Gladbach coach Marco Rose’s mind may not be on his current squad as his managers have lost three straight league games under him for the first time, spreading as their Bundesliga winless streak resulted in six games (E2, P4). He has particularly struggled in the second half, as seen by the fact that he was undefeated going into halftime in his last four league losses (MT: W1, E3), and has conceded the last three decisive goals after the 75th minute.
Gladbach’s last away game in the Bundesliga saw him squander a two-goal lead for the first time this Bundesliga season (2-3) by conceding a goal in added time. However, that was his only loss on the road in his last seven Bundesliga matches in this condition (G1, E5, P1), five of which saw him score first.
Players to watch: Florian Niederlechner scored both of Augsburg’s goals in their latest league win at home – both league games in which he was on target have seen him score the first goal. Similarly, Breel Embolo scored the first in Gladbach’s last away win in the league – his three goals this league season were his team’s first goal in the game.
Highlight: Augsburg coach Heiko Herrlich has an impressive personal record in head-to-head matches against Gladbach (W5, E1, P1), but his team has not won in eight games against his rival on duty (E4, P4) .
