We're staying in Germany, and Kev hopes for goals at Gladbach.

"Seven of Leipzig's last ten Bundesliga games have featured at least three goals, and I don't currently trust either defence."

Back Over 2.5 Goals at [1.7]

Borussia Monchengladbach v RB Leipzig

It proved to be a thrilling and emotional encounter at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne last night, a game that had just about everything. Michy Batshuayi scored twice on his Borussia Dortmund debut, the hosts FC Koln twice came back to level after going a goal down, but Andre Schurrle's late winner left us empty-handed. Nice game, bad result.

We'll get on the S-Bahn and make the short trip to Monchengladbach for tonight's clash between Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig. Both teams are in the mix for a top-four finish, but both need a win after a sticky spell.

Gladbach lost 2-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend, and their form is absurdly inconsistent. In the last five games they have alternated between wins and losses, and coach Dieter Hecking doesn't seem to be able to apply his usual defensive principles to this group of players. They have leaked 20 goals in their last 12 matches.

RB Leipzig are wobbling as well. They started the year with a stirring 3-1 win over Schalke, but have since lost in Freiburg and drawn at home to Hamburg. Without playmaker Emil Forsberg they are struggling for rhythm, and teenage centre-back Dayot Upamecano is having to learn on the job, and is understandably a little rough around the edges.

I fancy goals here. The last two meetings between the sides have produced at least three goals, and they tend to be pretty open games when these two clash. Seven of Gladbach's last 12 Bundesliga games have featured three goals or more, as have seven of Leipzig's last ten.
