Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 2/3 @ Bet 365
In a battle between two sides who have their sights set on securing a European finish this season, Borussia Mönchengladbach will welcome Wolfsburg to an empty Borussia-Park on Tuesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, devastated to have seen champions-elect Bayer Munich claim a late win over the weekend, Borussia Mönchengladbach are a side desperate for a bounce. Watching Bayer Leverkusen leapfrog them to the lucrative final Champions League spot, Marco Rose’s men have been hit with back-to-back defeats and have landed just a pair of Bundesliga victories since return from the enforced break. Including watching top-six outsiders Freiburg snatch what was a shock victory when opening June, Rose will be calling on his side to find some much-needed stability at the back. Shipping a trio of strikes at home against Leverkusen last month, Tuesday’s hosts have now failed to land a single top-flight clean sheet at Borussia Park since opening 2020. It is also worth highlighting that each of Gladbach’s last four matchups on home soil have seen over 2.5 goals by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, throwing away a two-goal lead against Freiburg on the road over the weekend and having to settle for a point, Wolfsburg quickly have a reputation for their performances on the road. Glad to see leading marksman Wout Weghorst make a return to scoring ways after bagging three Bundesliga strikes in back-to-back appearances, the Europa League chasers have now won their last three away fixtures, a run that was highlighted by a stunning 4-1 victory away at Bayer Leverkusen last month. Even more impressive, Oliver Glasner’s men have collected 16 points over their past six top-flight matchups on the road. There is no doubt that Tuesday’s guests should also be boosted by their previous meeting against the top-four contenders. When the two sides faced off earlier in the season, Wolfsburg picked up a stunning 3-0 romp at the Volkswagen Arena.
