Borussia Monchengladbach stand at the 6th position and their main goal is to finish the season in the top 6 and play in some of the European competitions next season. The second half of the season didn’t start great for home side. They played two games and both lost, so they will be fully motivated to take first points this year upfront their supporters. Dortmund beat them in the first Bundesliga match this year 1-3, while in the previous round Mainz was better team and took all three points. Home side didn’t have many success against Werder this season. In the first half of the season team from Bremen beat them 2-1 in Bundesliga, while in the German Cup Werder eliminated Borussia Monchengladbach 3-4.

Werder Bremen stand in the relegation zone and their main goal this season is to stay in the best German football league. They started very good the second half of the season and took 4 points in two matches. First, they beat Schalke 04 on away ground 1-3, while in the previous they took one point against Hertha 3-3. Pizarro, who scored three goals in the last two matches, and Ujah, top scorer in visitors squad (8 goals), are cooperate very good in the attack and they both will be the most dangerous players for Borussia defence. The main problem for visitors is their defence. They have the second worst defence in Bundesliga and it will be hard for them to secure their net.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Werder Bremen Prediction

Home side are favorites to win this game, but their form is not impressive. Visitors are fighting to avoid relegation, they have nothing to lose and will do their best to make positive result. Borussia have very good attack, while Werder have one of the wors defences in league. I expect an open and interesting match between Borussia Monchengladbach vs Werder Bremen and many goals in both nets. Odd is not impressive, but it’s very real and should be winning.
