On Saturday afternoon, Borussia Monchengladbach will host RB Leipzig at Borussia-Park hoping to win their opening game of the new Bundesliga season. The home team sits in 14th place after four games, while the visitors are third and might take over first place with a win this weekend.
With only two points from their first four Bundesliga games, Borussia Monchengladbach have had a rough start to the new season. However, they earned an impressive point in a 3-3 draw away to SV Darmstadt 98 last weekend.
After falling behind 3-0 to newly-promoted opponents at halftime, the Foals appeared to be on their way to a third league loss of the season. However, after Matej Maglica’s early dismissal in the second half, the visitors rallied for three goals, two from Theoson Siebatcheu and one each from Florian Neuhaus and Tomas Cvancara.
Newly appointed head coach Gerardo Seoane has stressed the importance of ‘defending compactly’ against an attacking Leipzig squad on Saturday. The team hopes to open their account for the new Bundesliga season by defeating their opponents.
Seoane also wants Monchengladbach to be dangerous going forward, and they have demonstrated that they can do so in their recent matchups with Leipzig, winning their previous three home games against De Roten Bullen by a combined score of 7-1.
After defeating Young Boys 3-1 on the road in their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday night, RB Leipzig’s unbeaten streak across all competitions now stands at four games.
Goals from Mohamed Simakan, Xaver Schlager, and Benjamin Sesko helped Die Roten Bullen get off to a winning start in Group G, which also features reigning European champions Manchester City and Serbian team Red Star Belgrade. Die Roten Bullen had previously defeated Stuttgart, Union Berlin, and Augsburg in the Bundesliga.
Although Leipzig have lost their last three trips to Monchengladbach, they have won six of their last eight games away from home in all competitions, losing only twice to Leverkusen in that span.
