Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim Prediction and Betting Preview 22 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-1
Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim PredictionBorussia Monchengladbach will look to keep their faint title hopes alive as they welcome TSG Hoffenheim to the Borussia Park in what promises to be an exciting match.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 18
Venue: Borussia-Park (Mönchengladbach)
Die Borussen have, once again returned to the upper echelons of the Bundesliga this season following a series of strong displays. Marco Rose’s men currently occupy the fourth position on the league table, level on points with third-placed Borussia Dortmund, and with a game in hand. 

Monchengladbach are only just four points off Bayern Munich in first, and with Bundesliga gradually drawing to a close, they can’t afford any more slip-ups if they are to win their first league title in over forty years – that’s some record there.

Hoffenheim, on the other hand, are experiencing what is turning out to be a disappointing season as they pursue a return to continental football. Die Kraichgauer have been fairly inconsistent this season and have found it difficult to maintain a decent run of form. 

A poor run of form has seen Alfred Schreuder’s men slip for the European spots, and they are now only the eighth best team in Bundesliga, with thirty-three points from twenty-two games. However, Hoffenheim are only just three points away from Schalke 04 in sixth, and they will be targeting a strong end to the season in order to seal a return to Europe.

Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim Team News

Monchengladbach returned from an unscheduled week off to put in a strong, and dominant display in their 4-1 thrashing of local rivals, Fortuna Dusseldorf, during their last league outing. Goals from Jonas Hoffman, and Florian Neuhaus, either side of a Lars Stindl brace were enough to seal the win, with Erik Thommy’s first half goal for Dusseldorf proving to be nothing more than a consolation goal.

That victory enhanced Die Borussen’s reputation as one of the best sides in the league when playing away from home, but they are equally as good, if not better, when playing at Borussia Park. After losing to Leipzig in the second round of Bundesliga matches, Monchengladbach have gone on to record eight straight league victories at home, swatting each opponent aside with relative ease.

Die Fohlen also boast one of the best attacking records in the league, scoring forty-two times so far, with twenty-eight of those strikes coming at home. They have also managed to keep things fairly tight at the back, letting in just twenty-four league goals, which is the joint-best record in Bundesliga.

Last time out in Bundesliga, Hoffenheim twice came from behind, but would ultimately fall short in a thrilling 3-2 defeat by Wolfsburg – a match which saw three penalties awarded and scored. That defeat saw Die Kraichgauer slip down to eighth on the league table, and they have now lost two league matches in a row, with just two wins in their last five league outings.

Despite their recent poor form, Hoffenheim boast one of the best away records in the league, winning five, drawing two, and losing three of their matches on the road this term. 

Hoffenheim will certainly be looking to improve on their impressive away record, but they come up against a Monchengladbach side that are imperious when playing in front of home fans.
