Our match prediction:
Having hammered Werder Bremen at the weekend (5-1), Borussia M’gladbach will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Hamburger at Volksparkstadion on Sunday afternoon. Die Fohlen produced a terrific display in the triumph over die Werderaner, but beating die Rothosen on the road is easier said than done. Andre Schubert’s men moved a little closer to the Champions League places and given that they are just one point behind the top four, we are positive that the visitors will go for a win in Sunday’s Bundesliga game. Hamburg have been slipping down the standings week by week and they will be aiming to put an end to their six-match winless run in the national championship when they face Borussia M’gladbach at their Volksparkstadion. The team’s top flight status is in danger and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against M’gladbach. Taking everything into account, the two sides are expected to cancel each other out.
