Fabulous Foals to Make You Glad All Over

monchengladbach 4-2 sevilla

Saturday’s game between Hoffenheim and Monchengladbach is the most interesting match of the German Bundesliga’s 14th round from a punting perspective, with a couple of bets striking one as representing excellent investments.

Monchengladbach is the form team of the German Bundesliga and it spanked Sevilla 4-2 in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday to put itself in the driving seat for Group D’s berth in the UEFA Europa League. What Andre Schubert has managed to achieve in his short time as Monchengladbach coach is remarkable, with the Foals going from potential German Bundesliga relegation candidates to contenders for the silver medal behind champion-elect Bayern Munchen.

Hoffenheim is the German Bundesliga’s most out-of-form side having failed to win any of its last six divisional games, accruing only three points over that period. Hoffenheim’s summer wheeling and dealing has backfired badly and it is anchored to the foot of the German Bundesliga ladder with eight points from its 13 matches, including four goalless games in a row. And it is not as though Hoffenheim has had the toughest German Bundesliga program recently – its last four league opponents have been Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hertha and Koln, teams that are, at best, middle of the pack.

Both Monchengladbach and Hoffenheim have lined up against Hertha in Berlin lately and the difference in their results is stark. Monchengladbach cruised to a 4-1 win over Hertha, whereas Hoffenheim slumped to a 0-1 defeat versus the same side. Marathonbet is offering odds of +136 that Monchengladbach beats Hoffenheim for the third German Bundesliga clash on the spin. Last season’s corresponding German Bundesliga fixture ended in a 4-1 away victory for Monchengladbach.

Bookmakers will go up with German Bundesliga corner-kick lines before the round begins and one likes the idea of backing under 10 and a half corners in Saturday’s match between Hoffenheim and Monchengladbach – one is positive that Bet365 will enable punters to strike such a wager. ( -192 with 888Sport and Unibet is the best price now)

Ten of Hoffenheim’s 13 German Bundesliga games have gone under 10 and a half corner kicks, including five of its six home matches. Hoffenheim is averaging the fewest attempts and attempts on target in the German Bundesliga, which is limiting its corner-kick production to 4.23 per game.

Ten of Monchengladbach’s 13 German Bundesliga matches have gone under 10 and a half corner kicks, including four of its six away games. Monchengladbach is stingy when its comes to conceding corner kicks, giving up an average of 3.54 corners per German Bundesliga match. Monchengladbach’s corner-kick count has not risen since Schubert succeed Lucien Favre in the Foals job so most things point to an unders bet.

Bookmakers have taken sufficiently evasive action to put one off backing Sunday’s German Bundesliga game between Dortmund and Stuttgart to be high scoring so one’s final pick is an obvious one – Bayern Munchen to beat Hertha without leaking a goal in their Saturday match at the Allianz Arena.

For the sake of the German Bundesliga one thinks that the competition organisers need to find a way to narrow the gap between Bayern Munchen and the other 17 teams because it is getting out of control. For example, Bayern has beaten the German Bundesliga’s second- and third-placed sides, Dortmund and Wolfsburg, 5-1 at home this season. Hertha is not in the same class as Dortmund and Wolfsburg and, as a low-scoring team, one likes the home side’s win-to-nil odds of -175 with PaddyPower. Bayern defeated Hertha 1-0 home and away in last term’s German Bundesliga so the recent head-to-head form suggests that odds of -175 are more than reasonable.
