Back Gladbach’s hot streak to continue
After a disappointing December, Borussia Monchengladbach are on the march and they can take their Bundesliga unbeaten run to seven with victory over Cologne.
Gladbach find themselves seven in the Bundesliga because they won only one of their final seven games of 2020 but they are better than that, and are starting to show it.
Marco Rose’s men have won four and drawn two of their opening six games this year and are a perfect three from three at home in 2021.
Gladbach have recorded three straight home league successes against Bayern (3-2), Werder Bremen (1-0) and Borussia Dortmund (4-2) and should have few concerns accounting for Cologne.
The visitors have won two of their last three league matches to ease their relegation fears, but those successes were recorded against Arminia Bielefeld and Schalke, who sit 16th and 18th respectively.
However, they are the only two times from their last eight games in which they have managed to score and that won’t cut it against an in-form Gladbach.
Gladbach have won five of the last six meetings between the pair and given Cologne’s recent lack of firepower, we predict them to maintain that superiority.
Cologne were thumped 5-0 at Freiburg and 3-0 at Hoffenheim in January and another heavy road defeat could be on the cards at Borussia Park.
Take Gladbach, who won October’s reverse fixture 3-1, to win by at least a two-goal margin again and correct-score punters should take the visitors to fire another blank in a 2-0 scoreline.
