Borussia Monchengladbach will be looking to return to winning ways when they host RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga on Saturday evening. The visitors, meanwhile, made an impressive start in Marco Rose’s first game in charge last weekend, as they beat their new manager’s former side Borussia Dortmund 3-0.
Gladbach made an excellent start under a new manager themselves after appointing Daniel Farke during the summer, but it would be fair to say that their form has stuttered in recent weeks.
Two points from their last three games certainly does not represent anything close to a disaster, especially when one of those points came against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, but the former Norwich City boss would have hoped for a better return since winning two and drawing one of his first three league games in charge.
Die Fohlen have regularly leaked too many goals in recent years, which was an accusation labeled at Farke during his time in East Anglia, too, so the 45-year-old would have been content to keep an in-form side at arm’s length for the majority of the match.
Meanwhile, Leipzig were incredibly impressive against Dortmund last weekend, with Rose clearly making an immediate impact after Domenico Tedesco’s reign had drastically spiraled out of control in the form of 4-0 and 4-1 defeats to Eintracht Frankfurt and Shakhtar Donetsk respectively.
For Leipzig to follow that up by not even allowing BVB a single shot on target during the encounter at Red Bull Arena was an incredibly impressive achievement given that Rose had only had two days on the training ground with his new set of players.
Willi Orban had provided his new boss with the perfect start by scoring a thumping header after six minutes, before Dominik Szoboszlai doubled his side’s lead moments before the half-time interval with a crashing effort from distance. Amadou Haidara wrapped up the victory late on, long after it had been apparent that Dortmund would not be getting back into the game in any case.
