Borussia Monchengladbach v Leipzig Betting Tips

We’ve got ourselves a big match at Borussia-Park on Saturday when Borussia Monchengladbach aim to derail RB Leipzig and get themselves into the top four of the German Bundesliga.

Marco Rose’s side were able to finish fourth in the table last season and qualify for the Champions League, although their opponents finished one place higher and have made a successful start to the campaign which has seen them collect thirteen points from their first five matches played this term.

Can Leipzig Challenge for the Bundesliga Title?

The bookies aren’t yet convinced that Julian Nagelsmann’s side can overcome the mighty Bayern Munich this season although it’s been a strong start for the former who are contending well despite losing leading striker Timo Werner to Chelsea in the summer.

Bayer Leverkusen are the only team to stop them in their tracks thanks to a 1-1 draw although the remainder of the matches have resulted in a Leipzig victory and there have been some emphatic scorelines including a 4-0 victory over Schalke.

They recently came from behind to beat Hertha Berlin although the big question is whether they will have enough recovery time to perform at their optimum level considering that they will have gone to Old Trafford to play Manchester United in the Champions League during the week.

Even so, they are warm favourites to win this football match and keep up their title challenge, with Nagelsmann hoping that Bayern are able to drop points and a 4-1 defeat away to Hoffenheim proved that the German champions are human after all.

How Can Borussia Monchengladbach Win This Match?

Monchengladbach have made a steady start to their 2020/21 campaign, enjoying away wins against Cologne and Mainz, although they have struggled to earn points at their own stadium and have been held to 1-1 draws by both Union Berlin and Wolfsburg.

There appear to be defensive issues that need to be corrected and they will have come into this clash after a Champions League match against Real Madrid, having previously earned a 2-2 draw against Internazionale. At least Jonas Hofman is in good scoring form and the 28-year-old has scored in three consecutive matches at the time of writing.

The games are taking place at a relentless pace for both teams and it’s possible that we might see players being rested for this clash despite the fact that these are both top four Bundesliga sides who need positive domestic results to make sure of their continued participation in the competition.

What Are the Best Bets for this Match?

We like the idea of Leipzig winning the game as they appear to have the squad depth to cope better with the hectic fixture schedule than their opponents. The Leipzig team seem focused on challenging for major domestic honours this season and can lay claim to being a better team than their opponents right now.

We’ll have two attack-minded teams lining up at Borussia-Park and this suggests that both teams to score could be a viable option, while an alternative play could be backing Over 2.5 Goals to be bagged throughout the ninety minutes.

If you think that Leipzig will win a high-scoring match, there are a number of ways to find a betting angle. You can back the visitors and both teams to find the net, while you could potentially play the correct score market and we like a Leipzig victory by either a 3-1 or 3-2 scoreline.
