Before the season, both Alfred Schreuder at the TSG Hoffenheim and especially Marco Rose at Borussia Mönchengladbach were showered with many laurels. Both coaches should continue the thoroughly successful work of their predecessors seamlessly and help the respective team to add a new facet to their own football.
Hoffenheim vs Gladbach Today’s Betting Odds and Predictions
Before the direct duel Hoffenheim vs Gladbach, in which the odds of bookmakers make no real favorites, can be said with justification and right that both football teachers in the first few weeks and months have to struggle with considerable teething problems. Especially the Kraichgauer can not be satisfied with five points after five matchdays.
Consequently, on Saturday afternoon, the greater pressure on the shoulders of Sinsheimer, whose first and only Bundesliga success in 2019/2020 already over a month ago. At the same time the blue and white are looking for reparation in front of their own fans, because the last home game against SC Freiburg was sang- and soundless lost 0-3.
With the Elf from the Lower Rhine waiting now but a dangerous opponent who has so far twice as many meters on the credit side recorded and yet extremely self-critical deals with the last performances. Should the Rose-Elf begin to convince footballers, is a Hoffenheim vs Gladbach tip in favor of the foals quite plausibly justified.
Hoffenheim – Statistics & Current Form
Even in our analysis of the first coach dismissal in the Bundesliga, the name Alfred Schreuder fell relatively often. Although we did not want to deny the skills of the Dutch practice leader, there were some signs that the ex-Nagelsmann assistant, who was relatively inexperienced as a head coach, was facing a difficult task.
For one, the problems at TSG are homemade. With Amiri, Demirbay, Joelinton or Schulz absolute top performers and opinion leaders were given and replaced by mostly Bundesliga-inexperienced players from abroad. This new approach has not worked as expected so far. Some newcomers are at their best and have not yet fulfilled their expectations.
On the other hand, however, the loss of successful coach Julian Nagelsmann in the succinct assessment of the overall situation must not be neglected. The 32-year-old Neu-Leipziger hoisted in 1899 over three years to a new level, maintained a great relationship with its players and was considered a master of his craft when it came to get the most out of their own possibilities.
In addition, after five match days, it seems as if a new manuscript under Schreuder, who once served as an assistant to Nagelsmann, is not really recognizable. The always present in previous years offensive strength, the Kraichgauer seem to have lost at least for the time being. Otherwise, only a meager four goals scored in 450 minutes at least not to explain.
In three out of five matches in the Bundesliga, the TSG remained without its own goal. No other first-division club scored fewer goals than last year’s Champions League contenders, who now obviously put a greater focus on their own defensive work. At least here Coach Schreuder can be quite satisfied, because seven goals match a decent value.
The bottom line is, however, that the yield with one win, two draws and two defeats does not meet the high expectations of the Hopp Club.
“It may be that both teams want to play fast forward. We saw that from Gladbach, we want that too. If we find our rooms, we can make Gladbach weak ” – Alfred Schreuder
To stay connected to the European Cup places, a home win next weekend is almost mandatory. Nevertheless, we make the prediction between Hoffenheim and Gladbach that such a trip will not occur in favor of Sinsheimer.
Another argument that supports our thesis is the inconstancy in front of a domestic backdrop. In the preseason Hoffenheim won, for example, only seven of their 17 home games (five draws, five defeats) and thus finished in the home table only eleventh place.
The fact that the fans in the Rhein-Neckar-Arena have not yet become one hundred percent warm with the newly formed team, is due to the embarrassing performance in the 0: 3 against Freiburg. Because the will to do better this time can lead to inhibitions or performance losses within a team that may still lack structures and hierarchy, so we tend to face the Hoffenheim vs Gladbach match. Gladbach to a tip on the guest.
Kramaric, Samassekou and Zuber will be injured. Many changes will probably not give it compared to the 1: 1 from the previous week in Dusseldorf. If Schreuder wants to start more offensively than last, Locadia, Adamyan or Rupp would be potential candidates for an assignment from the beginning.
Probable team of Hoffenheim:
↳ Baumann – Posch, Vogt, B. Huebner, Skov – Grillitsch – Rudy, Geiger – Kaderabek, Bebou – Belfodil

Gladbach – Statistics & Current Form
It would have been hard to imagine if Borussia Mönchengladbach lost just three days after the embarrassing clap in the Europa League against Wolfsberger AC and the subsequent home derby against Fortuna Düsseldorf. For a long time, it looked exactly like this, before in the closing phase, the son of a world champion turned up.
Marcus Thuram, Filius of Lilian Thuram, who crowned France in 1998 with the French national team, scored with his two goals in the 74th and 87th minute a 0-1 deficit in a 2-1 win and was thus mainly responsible for the fact that the Elf from the Lower Rhine was able to work fairly quietly during the week.
Nevertheless, the second derby win in a row – already in the week before had won the VfL in Cologne 1-0 – do not hide the fact that Marco Rose must continue to complain about some open construction sites. First of all, the offensive, which does not really work, must certainly be mentioned.
With only seven goals scored, the black and white in the top half of the table are the most innocent offensive team. This is surprising in that the German coach used a very courageous approach at his time at RB Salzburg and stood for a fast as well as early attacking football throughout Europe.
Although Marco Rose finds in Mönchengladbach a highly talented squad, who should also be able to implement his ideas, however, the implementation of the coach’s handwriting seems to take more time than previously expected.
“I’m not a fan of big statistics, but we’re doing well in some areas and on a decent track. But we are also very self-critical ” – Marco Rose
Because sports director Eberl usually gives a trainer a lot of time, it can be assumed that the foals will soon get a Salzburg-like face.
Despite all legitimate criticism of the Europa League participants can still speak of an absolutely satisfactory Bundesliga start. With ten points, the VfL ranks in the top six and has accordingly connection to the front runner. With an away win the Borussia waving in the ranking even a further jump up.
We lean against the game Hoffenheim vs Gladbach with the prediction that the rank eighth in the current situation away games easier by the hand, certainly not too far out of the window. The pressure is smaller, the rooms are larger and also the self-confidence after three successes in the stranger from three competitive games underpins this assessment.
Youngster Bennetts, Hofmann, Johnson, Müsel, Stindl, Traore and Strobl must fit injured. However, the losses of various potential regular players also shows that Borussia has a very broad squad and will need all the players for the upcoming task in the European Cup as well as in the league. Neuhaus, Jantschke or Wendt are candidates for the starting eleven.
Probable team of Gladbach:
↳ Sommer – Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini – Zakaria – Kramer, Benes – Embolo – Thuram, Plea
Last matches from Gladbach:
⚽️ 22.09.2019 – Gladbach vs. Dusseldorf 2: 1 (Bundesliga)
