Borussia Monchengladbach vs Wolfsburg Soccer Prediction Today
With 40 points (11 wins, seven draws and 12 losses), the Monchengladbach team is in eighth place. You need to win at least two positions to enter the top six and thus have the right to play the 2018/2019 version of the Europa League.
With only four games to go, the situation is not easy. Hoffenheim, sixth-placed, has six more points. Thus, winning the remaining 12 points are the basic task of Borussia Monchengladbach, who will still have to cheer for the opponent’s stumbling.
But in one step philosophy at a time, victory on Friday is essential. The problem is that home games have not been the most favorable for the Monchengladbach team. In the last five matches, the team managed to accumulate only five of the 15 points played. He won one game, drew two and lost two. He is only the ninth best man in the Bundesliga.
To make matters worse, coach Dieter Hecking has many bruising problems. Defender Fabian Johnson (10 matches in the 2017/2018 German Championship, one goal) is in the infirmary; Patrick Hermann (22 games, no goal), Chrstoph Kramer (24 games, two goals) and Reece Oxford (six games, no goal); and attackers Raul Bobadilla (13 games, no goal) and Julio Villalba (one game, no goal).
If Borussia Monchengladbach’s campaign in their domains have not been very convincing, Wolfsburg’s performance as a visitor is far worse. The team is the second worst in this issue in the current season of the German Championship. Of the 45 points he played away from home, he managed to win only 14 (two wins, eight draws and five losses). Even Hamburg, who are virtually down to Bundesliga 2 with 16 points, have higher numbers.
That weak performance makes Wolfsburg keep fighting to try to remain in the elite division of German football. At the moment, this fight is reduced to practically three teams. All of them tied with 30 points. The competitors of the alviverde are Mainz and Freiburg.
Taking advantage of the tiebreaking criteria, Wolfsburg is in the 14th position. Mainz are soon to follow, still outside the region of the sticking, and Freiburg is the sixteenth, already in the relegation zone.
To face Borussia Monchengladbach, Wolfsburg also face many injury problems. The defenders are John Brooks (seven matches in the 2017/2018 German Championship without a goal), Jeffrey Bruma (ten games without a goal) and Sebastian Jung (two games without a goal); Jakub Blasczykowski (seven games, one goal), Ignacio Camacho (11 matches, no goal) and Josuha Guilavogui (26 matches, two goals); and striker Admir Mehmedi (five games, one goal).
