Borussia Monchengladbach take on the visitors Mainz 05 at the Stadion im Borussia-Park in the 8th tour of the Bundesliga. The match will be played in Monchengladbach on Sunday, October 21st.
Borussia Monchengladbach have been competing for the highest places in the Bundesliga recently. Now they are three points behind the leader of the league Borussia Dortmund in the table. Die Fohlen have been looking really strong in the start of the new season. They have won all of their home fixtures so far. Their defensive line has been especially incredible recently. For example, the team of Dieter Hecking has conceded only two goals overall in their recent league games against Bayer Leverkusen, Stuttgart and Eintracht Frankfurt. Instead, they have scored seven goals overall in those matches. Last tour Die Borussen were even able to beat the reigning champions of the Bundesliga Bayern Munich with a 3-0 score on the away field. Interestingly, they controlled the ball for only 28% percent of time in that game. Also, they had only three attempts on goal against Die Roten. It was spectacular to see them score three goals out of their three attempts on goal. In their last three matches Borussia Monchengladbach beat Wiener Sportklub with a 6-0 score in a friendly fixture, Bayern Munich with a 3-0 score and drew against Wolfsburg with a 2-2 score.

Mainz 05 were able to get seven points in their starting three fixtures of the new Bundesliga season and were in the first three of the league back then. However, now they are back to the middle of the league. Die Nullfunfer are on the eight place in the table at the moment but they are likely to get even lower after their upcoming match against Borussia Monchengladbach. In their last three matches Mainz 05 beat Eddersheim with a 4-0 score in a friendly fixture, drew against Hertha Berlin with a 0-0 score and lost to Schalke 04 with a 0-1 score
If this fixture between Borussia Monchengladbach and Mainz 05 happened four days after the win over Bayern Munich for Dei Fohlen the team of Sandro Schwarz would have a small chance to get some points. Now though the team o Dieter Hecking is back to their normal mental shape and is likely to beat their opponents easily on Sunday. During the pause due to the international fixtures Borussia Monchengladbach had a friendly match against Wiener Sportklub from Austrian 2. Bundesliga. They beat them easily with a 6-0 score. Mainz 05 are next in the queue to get under the rink of Die Borussen. The hosting side has been looking really safe in the defense in their previous games in front of their home crowd. They have conceded only two goals in their three home games so far this Bundesliga season. Also, Die Fohlen have been extremely great in the offense lately. Their recent victory over Bayern Munich has been the best confirmation of that. Furthermore, they have already scored seven goals in front of their home crowd this season. Mainz on the other hand have been able to get only one point out of nine possible on the away fields this Bundesliga season and have been looking weak overall. Not only that but Die Nullfunfer have scored only one goal in their three away games this season. Obviously, the team of Dieter Hecking has been on a roll and the team of Sandro Schwarz has been on a downswing recently. Thereby Borussia Monchengladbach should get the victory in the upcoming match.
Prediction for the match: Borussia Monchengladbach to win.
