Koln v Monchengladbach Preview
The game between Koln and Monchengladbach is one of the biggest Rhineland Derbies in German football but this time around, the two sides head into the encounter with contrasting priorities.
The home side have won just once in their last nine encounters and the visitors are continuing their ascent in the league standings.
Manager Steffen Baumgart had a great start to life at Koln but in the last couple of months, the team has come crashing back to earth and if they continue performing the way they have been of late, they might be starting at a serious bid for survival in German topflight.
Koln have not lost at home in the last six games but they now take on a Borussia Monchengladbach that is flying high. Adi Hutter’s men are in ninth place in the league standings but they have way too much quality to be happy with just a top half finish. This is a team that warrants a run for a place in Europe and they would love to get one step closer to doing that at the expense of their bitter rivals.
