Tip Fortuna Dusseldorf - Mönchengladbach
Fortuna Dusseldorf are seeking a rise away from the relegation zone and this is what will form the bulk of their targets as they host Borussia Monchengladbach in the 22nd round of Bundesliga. Going to this game, Fortuna are placed 16th with 17 points and Monchengladbach have so far managed 39 points and are in fourth place. With just one win in their last five matches and no clean sheet in the last 12, Fortuna will know they have a tough task here. They have conceded two or more goals in eight of their last 13 matches, casting a dark shadow over their defensive ability and their attack is not much better. The team has scored over 1.5 goals in just two of their last 13. They have three losses in their last five home matches, with no clean sheet and just one win. Fortuna have won just one of their last 11 Bundesliga matches and in the process won just seven out of a possible 33 points. Of their last 10 Bundesliga games at home this season, Fortuna have won just three.
While Fortuna have endured a tough run, Borussia Monchengladbach have done fairly well but have not had it easy either. They have two wins and three losses in their last seven matches but have struggled more away from home, with just four wins in their last 10 away Bundesliga matches. Monchengladbach are winless in their last five Bundesliga away games and have conceded twice in four of these, while keeping just one clean sheet. They have won just one of their last seven away league matches and failed to score in four of the seven. They may look at the fact that Fortuna have the least goals in Bundesliga as some motivation going to this game but Monchengladbach have not been very strong in attack away from home. They have scored under 1.5 goals in six of their last nine Bundesliga away games. However, looking at the season in its entirety, Monchengladbach have been good defensively and they currently have the joint meanest defence in the league, having conceded 23.
