Our football match prediction:
Hamburger and Borussia M’gladbach, the two teams that faced each other in the German Cup quarter-finals earlier in March, will meet again in a competitive match, but this time out they will square off against each other in Bundesliga. Die Fohlen eliminated die Rothosen in the DFB Pokal and it remains to be seen if Mark Gidsol’s men are capable of getting their revenge on Dieter Hecking’s troops. Borussia M’gladbach outclassed Schalke (4-2) at the weekend and seeing that they are eyeing a place in European competitions, we predict that the visitors will go for a win in Sunday’s football game against the relegation-threatened team. Hamburger did manage to beat Hertha Berlin in their last league fixture, but considering that the visitors have found their best form of late, away win should be considered. USA international Fabian Johnson, who scored a brace against Schalke, is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.
