RB Leipzig vs Monchengladbach 02/01/2020
Fresh off a surprise defeat last week, RB Leipzig looks to maintain their position on top of the Bundesliga table. They don’t have any space for another bad performance since Bayern Munich, Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund are breathing down their necks. In their last game, Leipzig was beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt, 2-0. Two second-half goals by Frankfurt ensured that the Red Bulls reduce their four-point lead at the top to just one. Leipzig generally was the better team as they had 23 shots and 67% of the possession. However, they only had 4 shots on target, which means they need another attacker besides Timo Werner. Luckily, they have signed Dani Olmo and he looks ready for his debut against Monchengladbach.
Players to Watch: Timo Werner (20 goals, 6 assists), Marcel Sabitzer (7 G, 5 A), Christopher Nkunku (3 G, 7 A), Emil Forsberg (4 G, 2 A), Yussuf Poulsen (3 G, 4 A), Dani Olmo (Debut).
Borussia Monchengladbach was in the top position for most of the first half of the season but fell apart towards the winter break. However, they are still in contention for the Bundesliga title as they are only two points behind Leipzig and one point off Bayern. After a 2-0 defeat to start the second half of the season, the Foals got back on the winning track last week with a 3-1 win against Mainz. The game started with a Mainz goal in the 11th minute but Monchengladbach maintained their poise as Alassane Plea scored a brace in the 24th and 76th minutes before Florian Neuhaus hit the dagger in the 88th minute.
Players to Watch: Alassane Plea (7 G, 5 A), Marcus Thuram (6 G, 5 A), Patrick Hermann (5 G, 4 A), Breel Embolo (5 G, 4 A), Denis Zakaria (2 G, 1 A), Ramy Bensebaini (3 G).
