Six points for three matches – the start is not a champion, but still quite confident. He brings “Leipzig” until the fourth place in the table. Beginning “bulls” not too successful way, having lost a dry guest match against “Schalke” (0: 2). But then Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team caught, beat the home of Eintracht (4-1), conceding the first, and a week ago earned the first guest Victoria, having won 2-0 at Hamburg. At the beginning of the week, Leipzig played a 1: 1 draw with Monaco in the Champions League.
In the case of the smooth-workers, the opposite is true: the results go downward. The beginning of “Borussia” victory over “Cologne”, followed by inertia caught points on the road with “Augsburg” (2: 2), missing the win at the last minute, and lost in the second home game of the season, “Eintracht” (0: 1). The advantage was noticeable, but to win back the goal, arrived in the first half, it was not possible. According to the results of three rounds, “stallions” are in the tenth place.
Statistics and personal meetings
“Leipzig” missed out in three of the four matches of the season.
In the full-time history of the teams only two matches – 1: 1 in Leipzig and 2: 1 in favor of the “bulls” in Mönchengladbach
Given the past season, “Borussia” skips home in five of the last seven games.
Little has changed since last season in the tactics of Leipzig. The team is still very powerful in the attack, scoring in three games in a row, but now the defense is not so smooth. A lot of strength for sure also took away the match with the “Monaco”, so the chances of at least a goal for “Borussia”, in our opinion, not bad. Last season the teams exchanged twice goals, we do not see any obstacles now.
