Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Arminia Bielefeld will be aiming to escape the relegation zone when they take on Borussia M’gladbach at Schuco Arena on Matchday 14. The newcomers have been anything but impressive in the first half of the season, but there were some positivities in their performance in a 1-0 win over Schalke 04. Arminia aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but they face an uphill task in the first game of the year.
Die Fohlen rolled over Elversberg 5-0 in the German Cup, and they are now on a quest to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga. Since the game will be played behind closed doors, Borussia M’gladbach will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Marco Rose rested several first-team regulars in the DFB Pokal clash, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Arminia.
