Borussia Monchengladbach

Die Fohlen suffered another major slip when they were forced to settle for a draw against Werder Bremen.

 

After Raffael snatched the early goal in the 6th minute, it looked like Die Fohlen had the upper-hand. Unfortunately, Ludovic Obraniak clinched a late minute goal that ensured an even steven finish.

 

It is understandable to see and feel the frustrations in the Borussia Monchengladbach’s camp. Their last six (6) matches readily reflected a lackluster performance, which resulted to a winless streak. Indeed, it is disappointing to see them fail to win a single match and settle for three (3) draws and three (3) losses.

 

Hoffenheim

It looks like Hoffenheim’s aspirations of having a strong finish this season is slowly materializing. Just recently, they subjected VfB Stuttgart to a 4-1 thrashing, which propelled them to the league’s top ten (10).

 

Hoffenheim has only won twice during their last 6 matches. However, their losses are less than what Die Fohlen have. They only have two (2) losses, while their opponents have three (3). The same thing goes with their draws in which, they also outlast, Borussia Monchengladbach.

 

However, it is interesting to note that Hoffenheim seem to have difficulties winning over the league’s minnows. They have lost a match against Nurnberg and Braunschweig secured a narrow win over them.

 

Prediction: Borussia Monchengladbach

Despite being winless in their last six (6) matches, Die Fohlen still gets the upper hand over Hoffenheim. However, they should be wary as the latter currently sport a better form, which, could easily lead to yet another disappointing result.
