Inconsistency seems to be Die Fohlen’s waterloo. After securing 2 consecutive wins, the club fell into the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt. The consequence of losing in the said match is a pricey one for it totally wasted the opportunity to overcome Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga table.

 

The moment consistency issues started to crop into the club’s system, they become too prevalent to be ignored.

 

Borussia Monchengladbach started strong this season. As a matter of fact, their impressive performance led many to believe that they shall be included in the top-flight league’s top 3. But much to the disappointment of many, the club was unable to meet the expectations of many. The defeat to Frankfurt is just one of the strongest manifestations of its inconsistent performance and ability to make a good response in much needed situations.

 

The loss, however, had no bearing in their current rank. The club did not succumb into a downward spiral. However, it could have affected their position even more if it was able to clinch a victory.

 

Similarly, the course of Hamburger SV’s destiny could have been changed if they responded well from the defeat against the minnow Stuttgart. Unfortunately, the best that they were able to deliver was a stalemate. As a result, they remained stuck in the relegation zone and is now forced to indulge in a fierce survival battle.

 

Hamburger SV’s situation becomes even harder as they are about to face the online betting favorite, Borussia Monchengladbach. The club has only won once against the latter and is suffering from a poor away form. To note, it has been unsuccessful in its last 5 away matches.

 

Prediction: Borussia Monchengladbach
