Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Leipzig will look to build on a routine 3-0 win over Augsburg when they take on Borussia M’gladbach on Saturday afternoon. Leipzig summer signings have already started paying off and it has to be noted that the Red Bulls scored 11 goals in total in the previous three league fixtures. A man to watch in the away team will be new recruit Lois Openda, who produced a brilliant performance in the last league match, while Lukas Klostermann is a major doubt. All Dani Olmo, Willi Orban, and Andre Silva remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, came from three goals behind to share the spoils with ten-man Darmstadt, but they face an uphill task against the star-studded Red Bulls. Leipzig are more of a team than Borussia and we predict that the visitors are going to prove their worth on the field. All Kone, Omlin, Lainer, and Kramer are injured for the hosts.
