On the other hand, Monchengladbach have not only been dominant in this clash, they have also had a fairly good season so far. They have the best defence in the league and meeting a team with the least goals among the top five sides should not be a worry. However, Monchengladbach have not done so well away from home. Based on their away run, dominance over Schalke and the fact that both teams have been scoring somewhat consistently, we are backing this game to end in a scoring draw.
