RB Leipzig vs. Borussia Monchengladbach Match Analysis and Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach is in quick desperation to overturn their current fortunes both in Bundesliga and Champions League as they travel to take on RB Leipzig. The match schedules for Saturday at Red Bull Arena with kickoff at 8:30 pm.

The visitors enter into the clash without a win in their last four matches across all competitions. The home side gives title leaders Bayern Munich a run for their money, with only two points separating the two sides.

RB Leipzig managed to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the Champions League last 16 ties last week by registering a third consecutive league victory with a 3-0 win at Hertha Berlin.

Marcel Sabitzer and Nordi Mukiele were both to blame for their 2-0 loss to Liverpool after individual mistakes cost them the first leg. Sabitzer responded with a contender for the season’s goal after an impressive dip style strike gave goalkeeper Rune Jarstein no chance.

Nagelsmann will be looking to build more pressure on league leaders who have recently capitulated in their form. A win this weekend will place them at the top of the Bundesliga while hoping Bayern Munich slip-up.

Gladbach might have lost their touch, especially after confirming that head coach Marco Rose will depart to join Borussia Dortmund in the summer. Only two points to show from their four league games is proving a slump.
