Borussia Monchengladbach take on the visitors Mainz in the round 5 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Sunday, September 4th at Borussia-Park (Mönchengladbach).
Borussia Monchengladbach are now playing under the new manager. The “Foals” relatively recently, under Marco Rosa, took 4th place in the Bundesliga and made their way into the Champions League. In such a contrast, 45 points and, as a result, the 10th position in the final table of the German championship, was naturally perceived as a failure. And led to a new change of mentor. They put on Daniel Farke, fortunately, he was free after he left the Russian club at the beginning of spring. So far, this mentor is doing a lot in a new place: 9-1 in the cup, 8 points in the first 4 rounds of the Bundesliga. It was Borussia that stopped Bayern by playing them 1-1 in Munich. The hero was not even Markus Thuram, who had already scored the 3rd goal in the draw, but Sommer. His 19 saves is a new division record.

Mainz started the new draw with dignity. The "Carnival" under Bo Svensson could become a full-fledged "tough nut". In the last season, they even fought for some time to qualify for European competition, however, in the end they finished in 8th place, albeit 6 points behind Cologne. It seems that in the new draw, the team and its mentor are willing and able to continue their fight for a return to the international arena. Having warmed up in the cup with Erzgebirge (3-0 away), Mainz managed to defeat Bochum and Augsburg with the same score 2-1 on the road, and played for a goalless draw at home with the ambitious Berlin Union. But last Saturday, the “carnivals” failed completely, managing to concede from struggling Bayer three times.
Borussia had a series of 8 head-to-heads without defeat, including 5 wins in a row. But in February last year, Mainz scored away 2-1. And both fights of the last German championship ended in draws 1-1. Borussia are good and will obviously strive to win, but Mainz also looks solid. We are waiting for a stubborn and, perhaps, not the most spectacular fight and the final "less than 3.0 goals".
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
