RB Leipzig – Borussia Monchengladbach Odds
The bookmakers are pretty sure RB Leipzig will come out on top. On paper, the Red Bulls are a better team than the Foals, who have mightily struggled on the road over the last couple of months. We should see a few goals, and the Over 2.5 Goals pays just 1.53 on bet365 Sportsbook.
The Red Bulls should beat the Foals despite missing Christopher Nkunku. RB Leipzig possess plenty of dangerous weapons upfront, and the Foals’ defense has been leaky on the road all season long. Monchengladbach have allowed a thumping 14 goals over their previous six league contests away from home. Hereof, I’ll take the hosts to win by two or more goals. Another interesting wager would be Both Teams to Score YES at 1.75 with bet365. Each of RB Leipzig’s last six home matches has seen both teams score.
