Borussia Mönchengladbach look to recover from a sudden slump in form when they host Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Borussia-Park. However, Dieter Hecking’s men are in the top four places but they have slipped behind Bayern Munich after the weekend results. Fortuna Dusseldorf remain at the bottom of the table after having only picked up five points so far. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Borussia Mönchengladbach win at 1.36[/bet_tip_now]
Fortuna Dusseldorf are given a price of 8.00 to win the match. However, it is not an attractive price to back a team that has been on a horrendous run this season. Friedhelm Funkel’s men are a strong favourite to get relegated at the end of the campaign. Even though Borussia Mönchengladbach have slumped to back-to-back defeats, they have home advantage and an opponent that has lost six out of the ninth Bundesliga matches this season. Our preview would go with a win for Mönchengladbach.

Correct Score odds
Dieter Hecking will expect a reaction from his players after watching Mönchengladbach suffered several consecutive poor results. Mönchengladbach cannot afford to extend this poor form with the likes of Bremen and RB Leipzig too close. Fortuna Dusseldorf have been able to score only two league goals in the last six games while they have conceded 17 during the same period. Our correct score prediction would go with a Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Fortuna Dusseldorf do not create many chances. It is not a surprise that the team has come up with only two goals in the recent six games. Mönchengladbach may have suffered back-to-back heavy defeats but manager Hecking will be keen to arrest the slide. Even though Mönchengladbach are expected to be the only scorers in this match, our correct score prediction would go for under 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 2.62[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Thorgan Hazard has been the best player at Borussia Mönchengladbach in the last couple of games. Alassane Plea has been going through an excellent campaign after making the switch in the summer, but he was hauled off at half-time after a disastrous performance against Freiburg. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Thorgan Hazard.
