Borussia Monchengladbach- Week 12

Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Eintracht Frankfurt

 

Match Date: 22 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadion im Borussia-Park

 

Borussia Monchengladbach

No one’s really entering into the blame game, but seriously, if it wasn’t for Cristoph Kramer’s own goal against Borussia Dortmund, the team could have maintained a clean slate.

 

Prior to the Dortmund face-off, Monchengladbach were the two (2) remaining undefeated squads, but the own goal changed everything. First of all, it lifted Dortmund out of the relegation zone. As for Monchengladbach, it lost the possibility of snatching the second spot of the league table.

 

Eintracht Frankfurt

Frankfurt did not only suffer its 4th straight loss, its meeting against the sports betting favorite, Bayern Munich also ended in a tragedy.

 

A rampaging Thomas Muller netted a hat-trick and Xherdan Shaqiri added more damage to extend the lead to four (4).

 

Frankfurt has only collected six (6) points during its last 6 matches and certainly, winning is their only option when they visit Die Fohlen soon.

 

Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach 2-0 Eintracht Frankfurt

 

 

 

***

Hannover vs. Bayer Leverkusen

 

Match Date: 22 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: AWD Arena

 

Hannover

In football, there’s no better way to redemption than to score a win and this sounds true for Hannover. The team has been subjected to three (3) consecutive defeats, but right now, they proved to be unstoppable. The club just clinched its 3rd consecutive win against the capital club, which propelled them to the 4th spot of the league table.

 

Bayer Leverkusen

Apparently, the draws aren’t helping Bayer in reaching its ambitions. A scoreless stalemate against Mainz forced the squad to endure a slip in the league table.
Right now, the club tries to thrive in the 6th spot and has only won once in its last six (6) matches.

 

Prediction

Hannover 1-1 Bayer Leverkusen
