Monchengladbach vs Hamburger – Bundesliga : Losing momentum and dropping on the league table
Monchengladbach was fighting to assert themselves in the top 4 of the competition.
However, with only 1 victory on their last 5 matches and being winless for 3 consecutive matches, the team has dropped to 8th place of the Bundesliga.
The tactical problems on their exhibitions are clear. The defensive part fails, what is even acceptable for their attempts of playing with an aggressive style.
However, when the offensive sector also fails on their attempted aggression, the weaknesses in the back weigh them down and prevent them from being competitive.
It is at home that the team is still able to have some confidence. Monchengladbach will have to change their posture and rely on the strength coming from the stands to have a chance to react.
The manager Dieter Hecking still has a lot of absences to deal with on their roster. Denis Zakaria, who is suspended, is another absence. Christoph Kramer, with a small contusion, is still doubtful for this match as well.
Hamburger even managed to get some points on their recent matches, but without any victories, they were unable to climb on the league table.
After 3 consecutive matches where they got points, they were defeated by Eintracht Frankfurt at home, 2-1.
The result ended their recovery into 3 straight winless matches, taking the team once again to the relegation play-off spots. That’s tough.
When they saw themselves back on the losing track and dropping into a worrying position on the league table, concerns started to flourish.
Yes, the team is fierce on the pitch, but they have a lot of difficulties getting into the opposing side of the field.
When their opponents are able to penetrate their defensive balance, the team is very limited in terms of options.
Despite having gotten some points on their last away match, their numbers on the road over the course of the season match their position on the league table.
The manager Markus Gisdol will have the same core he used on their latest matches at his disposal.
Monchengladbach vs Hamburger – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Monchengladbach’s difficulties are happening on and off the pitch. The team has been having a lot of contusion problems,
which contributed directly to the drop in terms of performance on their recent matches. Hamburger lacks confidence, technical and tactical quality.
The strength of the team is still allowing them to get some points.
However, if they want to keep fighting for the top 4, like they have been able to react on their home matches and aren’t intimidated by this opponent, Monchengladbach, if they match their rival’s dedication, will deserve the favouritism here.
