Augsburg vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction

Augsburg are currently 13th in the Bundesliga table, seven points behind 10th-placed Borussia Monchengladbach. They have won only one of their last five league games, Winger Daniel Caligiuri has done well for them so far.

Borussia Monchengladbach, on the other hand, are struggling. They have lost four of their last five league games. With manager Marco Rose set to join Borussia Dortmund in the summer, as well as the potential departures of stars like Denis Zakaria and Florian Neuhaus, Gladbach have a tough job in their hands.

Both sides are not in good form coming into this game, but Borussia Monchengladbach should be able to triumph.
