Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia M’gladbach struggle on the travels and that is more than obvious. Die Fohlen suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen on Matchday 6, with the team dropping to ninth place in the Bundesliga standings. Andre Schubert’s men, though, have been producing outstanding performances on home soil this season and they will be looking to keep their 100% record at Stadion im Borussia-Park intact when they take on Hamburger on Saturday afternoon. Markus Gisdol’s men are eyeing their first win of the season and it remains to be seen if they are capable of moving away from the bottom. Hamburger failed to find the net in previous two away games in the Bundesliga and that is the main reason why we predict the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. In previous two meetings between the two teams Hamburger emerged triumphant and Borussia M’gladbach are certainly hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Christoph Kramer):
Christoph Kramer is a German midfielder born in Solingen on 19 February 1991, and he is most famous for helping Germany lift the 2014 World Cup trophy. The defensive midfielder came to prominence after signing for Bayer Leverkusen, but it was the loan spells with VFL Bochum and Borussia M’gladbach that seriously aided his development.
Kramer received a surprise call up to Joachim Low’s World Cup squad, and he made a total of three appearances in Brazil, even starting the final against Argentina. The midfielder, however, suffered a concussion just after the half hour mark and he later confessed that he couldn’t remember anything from the most important game in his career.
Kramer remained a member of the Germany national team, making three appearances in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and there is plenty of time for him to represent the country at another major tournament, playing a more important role than the one he had at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
