Monchengladbach vs Leipzig: In one of the more interesting duels of the weekend in the Bundesliga, Mönchengladbach hosts Leipzig.
This is a duel between two teams at the top of the league table that are directly involved on the fight for the European qualification spots.
That already happened last season and now they are fighting once again for the top spots in this Bundesliga.
Mönchengladbach comes into this match a little bit below their opponents.
The team occupies the 7th place with 31 points, only 1 point behind Leipzig who has 32 and 2 points behind Frankfurt that currently occupies the 1st position that gives access to the next Champions League.
Their moment of form isn’t the best. Between friendlies and Bundesliga’s matches, which have just restarted in January, the team has 2 wins and 3 losses on their last 5 matches.

Leipzig is no longer the surprise they were last season, but still, they are still managing to make a consistent campaign and fight for the Champions League and the top of the league table.
The team has returned with a good win over Schalke 04 after the Bundesliga’s winter break.
Monchengladbach vs Leipzig – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But then they lost to Freiburg and on the last round they were disappointing at home, by drawing with Hamburger.
The team occupies the 5th place of the Bundesliga with 32 points. These two teams are fighting for that annual Bundesliga “title” besides Bayern Munchen.
And both have chances of getting, be it a spot on the Champions League, Europa League or even the 2nd place.
I believe that the home advantage will be important here. Mönchengladbach’s odds have value in my opinion, but the goals are also an obvious choice.
