RW Essen take on the visitors Borussia Monchengladbach at “Georg-Melches-Stadion” on the 1/32 stage of the DFB Pokal. The match will be played in Essen on Friday, August 11th.
RW Essen perform in the Regionalliga West which is the fourth tier of the German club football system. “Rot-Weiss” finished last season sitting on the 5th position in the standings with 55 points taken and 48-35 goal difference. In summer RW Essen participated in two friendly games and won both of them: vs. Borussia Dortmund 3:2 and vs. SW Essen 3:1. The side also has conducted two official clashes in a new season, having failed in them: the team lost to Wuppertaler 1:3 and got 2:2 draw against Dortmund II.

Borussia Monchengladbach settled on the ninth place in the previous season’s Bundesliga with 45 points gained and 45-49 goal difference, having not qualified to this season’s Eurocups. During the summer break “Die Fohlen” made some changes in their roster: Andre Hahn, Julian Korb and Mahmoud Dahoud have left the club for 21 million EUR while Borussia Monchengladbach have bought Julio Villalba, Denis Zakaria, Vincenzo Grifo, Mickael Cuisance, Matthias Ginter and others for 37 million EUR. “Die Fohlen” played nine friendlies in summer getting to wins, four draws and three defeats in them.
The forthcoming battle will become the first official head-to-head for the teams. I believe that even home-field advantage will not help RW Essen to promote to the next round of the DFB Pokal as there is a really dramatic gap in sides’ level.
Prediction for the match: Borussia Monchengladbach to win with -2.0 Asian handicap.
