Borussia Monchengladbach destroyed Oberneuland 8-0 in DFB Pokal to start the season in style, but then failed to get a victory in the first two Bundesliga games, losing to Dortmund and drawing with Union Berlin. They finally recorded the first win, and it was on the road against Koln, so the Foals are currently in 11th place with four points from three matches.

Wolfsburg, on the other hand, is alongside Bayer Leverkusen, the only side in Bundesliga with all three draws after the opening three rounds. Only one of those draws produced goals, and it was a 1-1 at Freiburg. In the meantime, the Wolves suffered elimination out of the Europa League, as AEK Athens beat them in the playoff round.

Here is my Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Wolfsburg betting pick and get all the latest news, stats, and H2H record.

Borussia Monchengladbach Team News and Stats

Scoring an average of 2.28 goals per contest in all Bundesliga home matches since the start of last season, Borussia Monchengladbach seen 13 of their previous 14 league victories across all venues provide over 1.5 total second-half goals, following a 3-1 win over Koln before the international break.

Furthermore, Borussia opened the scoring in each of their previous nine Bundesliga wins. Nonetheless, the hosts dropped two points after the 60th minute in their last home match (1-1), making it seven Bundesliga home contests in their last eight to see them allow precisely one open-play second-half goal.

Marco Rose will be without Laszlo Benes (ankle), Christoph Kramer (groin), Valentino Lazaro (calf), Andreas Poulsen (shoulder), Julio Villalba (muscle), and Denis Zakaria (knee).

Wolfsburg Team News and Stats

Victorious in half of their away league games entered as outsiders the last term, Wolfsburg scored the second goal of the match in each of their previous four Bundesliga games won/drawn to see both teams find the back of the net. Yet, with five of Wolfsburg’s six halves of league action played thus far in this campaign producing no goals either way, patience may be in order.

Last season’s H2H defeat here remains Wolfsburg’s lone loss in their last nine away league games. Going further back, each of their previous three Bundesliga away losses have seen them lose one half 2-0, and four of Wolfsburg’s last five Bundesliga visits to Borussia-Park (including last year’s corresponding H2H) have seen one half won/lost to-nil by a 2+ goal margin.

Oliver Glasner cannot count on Jeffrey Bruma (thigh), Joao Victor (groin), Kevin Mbabu (knee), Paulo Otavio (muscle), and Marin Pongracic (illness). The newly-arrived Maximilian Philipp is questionable with an illness, same as Renato Steffen, while Wout Weghorst (knee) and William (knee) are also questionable to feature on Saturday.

My Betting Pick

Wolfsburg has been the least efficient side after the opening three matches so far in Bundesliga, but on the other hand, they do have the best defense that allowed just one goal. Eight of the previous nine H2H duels produced Over 2.5 goals, which is hard to imagine to happen on Saturday, considering how the Wolves are playing early in the season. I am the bettor who is respecting the H2H record more than the latest betting trends, and that’s why I am going with over 2.5 goals. It’s about time we have one efficient game with Wolfsburg involved.
