Borussia Monchengladbach vs Mainz 05

Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK, Monchengladbach.
Borussia Monchengladbach last won a match back in late September when the team blanked FC Ingolstadt, 2-0, at their home field. Since then, Die Fohlen has never tasted victory with five losses and three draws.
Head coach André Schubert's side is coming off a crushing 1-4 defeat in the hands of Borussia Dortmund on the road at the Signal Iduna Park last Saturday, as per Daily Mail Online.
Monchengladbach opened the scoring right in the sixth minute of the match with a right-footed shot from outside the box by Brazilian winger Raffael.
The score was immediately leveled by Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, though, who buried a shot from the center of the box off an assist by vice-captain Marco Reus.
The hosts netted three more goals to complete their three-goal haul as defender Lukasz Piszczek, Ousmane Dembélé, and Aubameyang scored in the 15th, 64th, and 68th respectively.
With the loss, Monchengladbach dropped to the 13th spot of the German top flight table, five points above the bottom three relegation zone.

The head to head stats are all tied at nine wins each, but Mainz are looking much better on that field, being undefeated in last four encounters with Gladbach and winning both of the matches the teams played last season.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Mainz 05: Prediction
The main advice – Avoid home win bets at such small odds! The best betting pick will be both teams to score & Over 2.5 goals set at 21/20, which is more than enough to be taken in a mid-stakes single at least! Alternatively, Rafael is 5/4 to back up the fine form and score his third goal in last five matches which surely gives a decent value knowing that Gladbach will be facing one of the weakest defensive lines in the competition.
