RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach
SAT 11 DEC 2021 – KO 14:30
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Saturday afternoon, RB Leipzig host Monchengladbach at the Red Bull Arena, as both teams look to get their Bundesliga campaign back on track.
The home team will play their first Bundesliga game without head coach Jesse Marsch, who the club fired late last week. One of the main reasons for Marsch’s exit has been the fact that Die Roten Bullen currently sit 11th place in the table, seven points adrift of the Champions League spots in the German top-flight.
A 2-1 defeat at Union Berlin last time out in the Bundesliga was the last straw for the Leipzig hierarchy. The loss was the home side’s third straight defeat in the German top-flight. To make matters worse they have also conceded at least two goals in each of the defeats.
The Foals are level on points with the home team in the table but are 13th in the table due to vastly inferior goal difference to Die Roten Bullen.
Adi Hutter’s team heads into this clash on the back of a nightmare 6-0 mauling at the hands of Freiburg. The defeat was their second straight loss, as they had suffered a 4-1 defeat at Koln in their previous Bundesliga outing.
Monchengladbach have been poor travellers of late in the Bundesliga, losing seven of their previous ten away games in the German top-flight. That run includes one away win in their last seven outings in the Bundesliga.
RB Leipzig look set to be without several players, with Marcel Halstenberg, Ilaix Moriba, Willi Orban, Hugo Novoa, Yussuf Poulsen, Dani Olmo and Marcelo Saracchi all expected to miss out through injury and illness.
Monchengladbach are expected to be without Tony Jantschke, Mamadou Doucoure and Jordan Beyer through injuries.
There is very little between these two teams in terms of form and league position. We are backing this clash to finish in a draw.
