Borussia Monchengladbach welcome TSG Hoffenheim to Borussia-Park in what could be an exciting ‘high-scoring’ Bundesliga (BL) affair. Indeed, all eight of their previous top-flight H2Hs held here have seen both teams on the scoresheet, with five of the last six producing over 3.5 goals.
The hosts are unbeaten in three consecutive league matches (W2, D1) and are sitting four points adrift of table-toppers Bayern Munich ahead of the kick-off. The Foals remain in contention for the league crown mainly thanks to their impressive home form. They’ve racked up eight consecutive BL triumphs at this venue, six of which have yielded a winning margin of multiple goals (75%). Far more aggressive in the second half, the Prussians have bagged 62% (16) of the 26 BL home goals after the break. In fact, Marco Rose’s men have found the net at least once beyond the hour mark in their last five league home fixtures. However, Monchengladbach’s all-out second-half approach has seen eight of their 12 BL home goals conceded arrive after halftime (67%).
Meanwhile, the visitors have lost three of five BL outings since the turn of the year, including the last two (W2). Four of those results (win/loss) have come via a single-goal margin, with all but one featuring over 2.5 goals. In turn, none of their previous seven BL away games has ended in a stalemate (W5, L2), with three of their last road results seeing the winner on the day keep a clean sheet. Hoffenheim’s away action usually explodes into life after the break, as 16 of the 24 goals (scored/conceded) arrived in the second half (66.67%). A genuine lack of early goals could give traveling fans a reason to be wary. Indeed, 79% (11) of Hoffenheim’s 14 BL away goals came in the second 45 minutes, with ‘Die Kraichgauer’ finding the net in the opening 15 minutes of play in just one of ten BL road trips.
