The match between RB Leipzig vs Borussia Monchengladbach will be played on Saturday, February 1, 2020, in the twentieth round of the Bundesliga. The match is scheduled on Red Bull Arena.
Leipzig ended an invincibility period of three months
The defeat in the last stage, in Frankfurt (0-2), brought Leipzig to the end of the three-month period, since he never lost a meeting in all competitions. This result came as a surprise, but it was a well-deserved success for Eintracht Frankfurt. Leipzig still holds the leading position after the last leg, but Bayern Munich is now only one point behind and blows them in the neck. Nothing is lost yet, but it has to be more careful now.
The match with Frankfurt was the first in which Leipzig did not register. We must not forget that he has the second offensive line in the Bundelsliga, with 51 goals scored. Timo Werner has scored almost half of them (20).
Borussia Monchengladbach remains one of the candidates for the title
Borussia Monchengladbach was, for several stages, the leader of the Bundesliga standings. Due to the oscillating results he lost this position in favor of Saturday’s opponent. After the first stage of 2020 it was surpassed by Bayern Munich. It remains well placed, in third place, with 38 points. The difference from the first one is easily recoverable, with only two points. If at home is a very strong band, we can not say the same when playing away. In the last four meetings played on the opponents’ land he has accumulated only one point.
There remains the team with the best defense in the Bundesliga, with only 21 goals received. The main merit is that of goalkeeper Yann Sommer. He saved her many times. The last example is the match with Mainz, from the previous stage. Alassane Plea, with seven goals scored and five decisive passes, is the most dangerous attacker of the guests.
RB Leipzig vs Borussia Monchengladbach Picks
Leipzig must return urgently with victory in order not to lose the first position in the standings. I have seen that Borussia has problems in the matches they play away. Leipzig has won five of the last seven straight meetings with Borussia, four of them in the last four games. In the tour he got a slight victory, 3-1. Even now, we shouldn’t have any big problems in imposing ourselves, so we choose to go on the hosts’ victory.
