Monchengladbach to get a vital win over Freiburg

On Friday night, Monchengladbach host Freiburg in the Bundesliga, as the home side continue their quest for a Champions League spot.

Monchengladbach’s recent form has been poor in the league. However, the Foals have maintained their spot in the top-four of the German top-flight. The home team are currently fourth place, level on points with third place RB Leipzig and three points clear of fifth place Eintracht Frankfurt.

Last time out, Monchengladbach recorded a 1-0 win at Mainz to end a four-game winless run in the Bundesliga. The result means that five of their last eight matches in the German top-flight have produced under 2.5 goals.

The home side has now suffered three straight home defeats in the Bundesliga, conceding at least three goals in all three losses. However, the Foals had previously won their previous 12 league matches on home soil.

Monchengladbach have still scored at least two goals in 14 of their last 17 home matches in the Bundesliga, despite their recent poor home form.

Freiburg are enjoying a solid campaign and are currently 12th place in the German top-flight table, 11 points clear of the relegation play-off spot.

The visitors have been difficult to defeat in the Bundesliga of late, losing one of their last six outings in the German top-flight. Last time out, Freiburg recorded a 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin. The victory over Hertha means that the home side has scored at least two goals in five of their last seven league outings.

Freiburg have a poor away record in the Bundesliga, having won just one of their last ten matches on their travels in the German top-flight. Their recent away games in the Bundesliga have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last nine away matches.

Forebet predicts that Monchengladbach will record a victory in a high scoring game to consolidate their position in the Bundesliga top four.
