Borussia Monchengladbach

After beating Hamburger SV, the Foals retained their spot in the Bundesliga table. Currently, they are the league’s 4th placer and a match against Nurnberg gives them an opportunity to move farther in the Bundesliga ladder.

So far, the club proved to be strong when playing in their own territory. Eight (8) of their last 10 matches ended in victory. In  5 of their last 6 home battles, they average on at least 3 goals.

Nurnberg is also winless in their last 6 matches. They need to secure the victory against the Foals or they might end up in Bundesliga’s bottom pit.

Mainz 05 is in dire need of a major club revamp. They are dropping points and have a hard time securing a victory. In addition to that, they have been conceding at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches. Such is not a good sign for it seemingly guarantees 2 easy goals for their opponents.
