M’gladbach vs Hamburg – Goals certain between slumping sides
Borussia Monchengladbach may not have won at home in the Bundesliga yet this season, but they may not get a better chance to end this unwanted streak than when entertaining Hamburg.
It has not been the best start to the season for Monchengladbach as they prop up the Bundesliga table and are currently in the middle of a four-game losing streak.
Bundesliga betting odds have them priced at 7/4 to beat Hamburg and there are reasons why this could represent good value.
Monchengladbach have triumphed in all of their last three meetings with Hamburg, while the visitors’ recent form is not that much better than that of their hosts.
Hamburg have lost four of their last five games and have failed to win on their travels since October, although they are blessed with some potent attackers who have the talent to swing the game in the club’s favour.
It is 6/5 that they leave with the three points and retain their position in the top half of the Bundesliga standings.
With Hamburg having the likes of Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Mladen Petric in their ranks, Hamburg definitely have the firepower to take advantage of what has been a leaky Monchengladbach defence so far this season.
The hosts have conceded 45 goals in their 16 games so far and enter the fixture with Hamburg with a goal difference of -20.
This should ensure a high-scoring game and some decent betting opportunities may exist in the correct scoreline betting odds market.
It is 25/1 that Monchengladbach claim a 3-2 success and this could be a wise bet as at least three goals have been scored in each of their last nine league games.
Monchengladbach have also conceded three times in four of their last seven Bundesliga games and it is 18/1 that they fall to a 3-1 defeat.
