Augsburg are in a weak position coming into the match. Apart from having to work around their poor away form, Augsburg are also having to deal with a resurgent Mönchengladbach outfit. Dieter Hecking’s team have not made any new signings in this January window so far, but they have a 100% home record coming into the match. Mönchengladbach have been able to claim a victory in all of the eight home matches this season. The poor form experienced by Augsburg makes our preview go with a victory for the home team.

Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Augsburg draw odds: 4.00
Augsburg win odds: 5.00
Correct Score odds
Augsburg have been decent in front of goal with 26 goals – not too far behind Mönchengladbach’s tally of 37 goals. Hecking’s team have been sensational going forward and the likes of Alassane Plea have been able to hit the ground running in the Bundesliga straight away. Mönchengladbach were able to score only once during the weekend, but the team can capitalise on the opposition’s weaknesses to get a couple of goals. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Mönchengladbach 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The goals from Mönchengladbach and Augsburg may appear to be limited over the last six matches, but there is a strong case for expecting several goals in this upcoming match. Even though the last two games between Mönchengladbach and Augsburg at Borussia-Park have been low scoring, this fixture has witnessed several high-scoring games. Mönchengladbach are likely to capitalise on Augsburg defence that showed a lot of naivety even against a struggling outfit like Fortuna Dusseldorf. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alassane Plea grabbed his 10th goal – in what is turning out to be an impressive debut campaign in the Bundesliga – during the weekend against Bayer Leverkusen. Even though majority of his goals have come in away matches, our first goalscorer prediction would back Alassane Plea.
