VFB Stuttgart v Borussia Monchengladbach Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 22nd November 2013

VFB Stuttgart head into this game on friday night having struggled to win games of late and have started to slide down the league table and lose touch with the sides above them in the hunt for a European place for next season, so the importance of winning this game is crucial to keeping any hopes alive of securing a top 6 finish.

Borussia Monchengladbach are riding high in an impressive 4th position of the Bundesliga table and head into this game on friday night having won four of their last five matches so confidence is obviously going to be high and both fans and players will be confident of adding yet another 3pts to their tally which keeps them right in contention for a top 6 finish.

VFB Stuttgart v Borussia Monchengladbach Recent Form (Last 5 Games – Left to Right)

VFB Stuttgart: D D D L W

Borussia Monchengladbach: W L W W W

Borussia Monchengladbach have the clear advantage heading into this game on the recent form statistics which shows them having won 4 of their previous 5 matches played. VFB Stuttgart have struggled in their last 5 games played managing to win just 1 time and suffering a heavy 6-1 defeat against Dortmund.

VFB Stuttgart v Borussia Monchengladbach Match Betting Odds Market.

VFB Stuttgart have really struggled over the last couple of months but the online bookmakers seem to suggest the hosts will bounce back on friday night and have them priced up as the clear favourites to win this game at a best price of 5/4 with Sky Bet (£5 Free Bets Each & Every Week for New Customers).

The Draw has only happened once in the previous five meetings between the two clubs and with both sides desperate for maximum points it does seem an unlikely event and at a current best price of 13/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) I can’t really see many punters being tempted to get on especially with the goal stats suggesting this game to see at least a few goals scored.

Borussia Monchengladbach are certainly the side in form as they head into this game and although recent results at the Mercedez-Benz-Arena have not gone their way I can see the visitors winning this game and their odds of 2/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) does look excellent value in my opinion.

VFB Stuttgart v Borussia Monchengladbach Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

VFB Stuttgart have only managed two victories in their last eight matches which both came away from home and you have to go back to the 1st of September 2013 to find the last time Stuttgart managed to record a victory at the Mercedez-Benz-Arena and that is obviously a very worrying aspect.

Borussia Monchengladbach have had no such problems and are currently enjoying a rich vein of form having won five of their last eight matches played one of which included an impressive 2-0 victory at home against arch rivals Borussia Dortmund and it seems like the whole squad is confident of getting the right result from this game.

The goal stats suggest this game to see at least a few scored on friday night and markets like Over 2.5 Goals, Both Teams to Score YES and Anytime Goalscorers could all provide some additional value, but for me the visitors look decent value to win this game and continue their excellent run of form.
