Mönchengladbach vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Match Preview
Friday, August 30 – 14:30 – Borussia-Park
Mönchengladbach enter the season under somewhat of a transitional period. Certain players who found success at the club in recent years have moved on such as Thorgan Hazard. Mönchengladbach had an incredibly successful campaign last year finishing 5th in the Bundesliga. Notable players were not the only figures to move on. Manager Dieter Hecking left the club after his most successful season. So far they have coped well with these departures earning one win and one tie in their opening two games. The centre back partnership of Ginter and Elvedi has been stellar. They have conceded one goal in two games. Furthermore, winger Alassane Plea has picked up where Hazard left off. He is in fine form going into this match.
Leipzig look like a force to be reckoned with this season. They secured 6 points in two games in convincing fashion to earn joint top spot in the Bundesliga. Their first legitimate test comes against this Mönchengladbach team. Leipzig have won the past three Bundesliga encounters between these clubs. Nagelsmann will look to continue to prove that he is one of the top managerial talents on the planet. His tactics have been wonderful so far as his team found a way to bag 6 goals in two games while only conceding 1. Leipzig have always been a team that play as a unit. The proof of this is how evenly they distribute the offence. Timo Werner is the main man, however he is the only repeat scorer this season. This means their 6 goals belong to 5 different players. The manager will be pleased with this outcome as they look to defeat Mönchengladbach on Friday.
