Bundesliga / Borussia M'gladbach vs RB Leipzig – This is match between two undefeated teams in first two round and given their strength we can say this is the most interesting match of the Bundesliga third round. Borussia drew at home and won away in first two rounds, while Leipzig did even better and won both matches. Both Borussia and Leipzig were successful in the DFB-Pokal, while last year Leipzig won both their head-to-head; the one played in M’gladbach by 2-1.
Game Borussia M'gladbach vs RB Leipzig begins 30.08.2019 at 20:30 CET
It can be said that Borussia enjoys a good start of the new season although they didn’t start with only victories. In the first round they met Schalke at home and failed to win, in fact they didn’t manage to score at home and the match ended as 0-0 draw. It is interesting to compare that with the beginning of the previous championship when they won everyone at home with a clean sheet. Schalke didn't score either but they had good defence and Borussia had to settle for one point.
Away match with Mainz in the second round didn’t start and they received a goal quite early. Borussia quickly equalised thanks to Lainer who is one of newcomers. They managed to score two goals in the finish of match; the best player of the match Plea scored the first one and Embolo confirmed the victory, who also came this summer. He wasn’t the starting unlike in the first match and he came off the bench to replace F. Johnson. He could be the starter now instead of Thuram, another newcomer who didn’t exactly make a name for himself in first two matches.
Probable lineups Borussia M'gladbach: Sommer – Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Wendt – Zakaria, Benes, F. Johnson, Neuhaus – Embolo, Plea
Leipzig has a perfect start of the new season and they won all three matches played so far. They firstly won in the DFB-Pokal and it was quite an expected triumph, although they didn’t easily win Osnabruck. In the first Bundesliga round Leipzig played with newly promoted Union Berlin and they showed their strength as they won by sound 4-0. They scored three goals in the first half and it was clear they will win. They scored another goal in the second half through thanks to newcomer Nkunku, who came off the bench just four minutes before he scored.
Their opponent in the second round was stronger and they faced Eintracht Frankfurt. Again, Laipzig managed to take an early lead thanks to Ti. Werner who scored his second goal this season and that result didn’t change till 10 minutes before the end when Y. Poulsen doubled the lead with a brilliant goal. Near the end Leipzig received a goal, but realistically their victory was never questionable. The only change in the team was Nkunku, who replaced Kampl. He didn't exactly make a name for himself and it is possible that Kampl be a starter again, and perhaps Laimer replaces Demme.
Probable lineups RB Leipzig: Gulacsi – Mukiele, Konate, Orban – Klostermann, Laimer, Kampl, Sabitzer, Halstenberg – Ti. Werner, Y. Poulsen
Betting Pick: Borussia M'gladbach vs RB Leipzig
Borussia played a goalless draw in the first match at home but we expect now a totally different match. Leipzig plays very good and will try to win, although the home team should be also efficient, just like it was in the previous round.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.61 at bet365 (down to 1.56 can be played)
