Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia M’gladbach play host to Mainz at their Borussia-Park in what is expected to be an interesting Bundesliga game. Die Fohlen were more than fortunate not to suffer a loss in Munich, with goalkeeper Yann Sommer making no fewer than 19 saves. It is well known that Borussia produce much better showings at home than on the travels, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
All Stefan Lainer, Conor Noss, and Ramy Bensebaini are sidelined with injuries, while both Alassane Plea and Torben Musel are major doubts. Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, but seeing that Borussia M’gladbach havev turned their Borussia-Park into a real fortress, home win should be considered. Both Marcus Ingvartsen and Danny da Costa are injured for the away side.
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.
