We have another matchup where one of the teams on top will face one of the teams trying to avoid relegation. This Sunday, the 4th placed Borussia Monchengladbach are going to host the 13th Union Berlin.
The home team are having a great season. Having won 16 times, drawn 5 times, and lost 7 times, they have managed to gather 53 points so far. Their ultimate goal will be finishing the league in the top four and secure the ticket to Champions League. They missed out the chance to strengthen their position last week when they failed to defeat Werder Bremen; however, they still have the advantage over Leverkusen considering that they do not have a challenging fixture other than the away game on Munich. They are also trailing Leipzig by two points and Dortmund by four points. Long story short, they have simply too much at stake to lose any points at this stage.
Union Berlin, on the other hand, have won 9 times, drawn 4 times, and lost 15 times this season which put them at the 13th spot. They are only 4 points ahead of the 16th placed Fortuna Dusseldorf and they are in danger of playing the relegation play-offs. Therefore, their goal will be gathering as many points as they can and staying clear away from the danger zone. However, their away record points out their incapability of closing out games on the road. They have only won 3 times, drawn twice, and lost 9 times on away games this season. Last but not least, they have failed to win their last 5 matches in Bundesliga.
Considering that the home team have won the 9 of their last 12 home games, I do believe that Monchengladbach have the upper hand. My pick will be Monchengladbach -1 AH. If you are looking for the highest odds for this game, register for the best betting software. Good luck!
