Borussia Monchengladbach vs Werder Bremen Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach have impressed under Marco Rose. However, the former Red Bull Salzburg manager could soon leave the club, as Borussia Dortmund are interested. They have some talented stars in Denis Zakaria and Florian Neuhaus, but it will be a challenge to hold on to them.

Werder Bremen, on the other hand, are 12th in the league table. The return of forward Milot Rashica from injury could prove to be crucial. The Kosovo international was a key player for them last season and could boost their attacking prospects.

Borussia Monchengladbach have done well and should be able to emerge victorious.
