Augsburg vs Borussia MonchengladbachGerman Bundesliga, KO: 19:30 Mar 12, 2021, Augsburg Arena
TWO of German football's most down-on-their-luck sides meet on Friday when Augsburg entertain Borussia Monchengladbach in a Bundesliga encounter.
Both sides are seriously out of form – the hosts have won one game in their last six games, but Monchengladbach are without a win in their last seven games in all competitions and have lost five in a row.
Neither side look remotely likely to entertain thoughts of reaching the European spots for next season and both should have enough to get dragged into trouble, although Augsburg are seven points clear of the drop zone with a game more being played than third-bottomed Arminia Bielefeld and wouldn't be wanting to continue their recent poot form for too much longer.
It's a tough sell all right, but also an opportunity for either side to try and get back to winning ways.
How the bookies view it
Recent head to heads
The sides played out a 1-1 draw at Borussia Park in November, where the visitors were reduced to ten men after Raphael Framberger was sent off. Monchengladbach are unbeaten on their last three visits to Augsburg Arena.
Players to watch
Andre Hahn is Augsburg's joint-top scorer in the league this season with a modest return of five. The 30-year-old has scored twice in their last six games and is 17/4 with Unibet to score anytime.
Lars Stindl is a class act for the visitors and has scored 25 per cent of Monchengladbach's league goals this season, ten of the 40 they have scored. He's 9/4 with Skybet to score anytime.
Anything else catch the eye?
Soon-to-be-departing Monchengladbach boss Marco Rose's players appear to have downed tools somewhat following his announcement he would go to Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season and while they may stop the rot, they are far too short surely at odds-on.
Augsburg have won just three out of 12 home games and Monchengladbach have won three out of 11 away from home.
It could be wise to look at both sides extending their lack of wins and a draw looks the shout.
Neither side are prolific scorers either and under 2.5 goals at 19/20 with McBookie.com has serious claims with the visitors fitting blanks in three out of their last four games.
Borussia's Florian Neuhaus has managed to go six games without being booked which is highly unusual. He's joint top of Bundesliga bookings this season and so watch out for his price to be booked on the day of the game.
