Leipzig vs Monchengladbach: Preview, Free tip & Prediction
Saturday's fixture of the fifteenth round of the top German football competition will feature a match between home side Leipzig, who welcome visiting Monchengladbach to their stadium.
Basic information, news and team form
Home Leipzig has not started this season well at all. They are 11th in the league with 18 points and in the last three league games, Leipzig has recorded 3 defeats against Union Berlin, Leverkusen and Hoffenheim. In the Champions League group stage, Leipzig also failed to do well and if you add all these factors together, there had to be some drastic changes, and that was the dismissal of American coach Jesse Marsch, who replaced the departing Julian Nagelsmann, who was sold to Bayern Munich in the summer. The American coach was temporarily replaced on the bench for Tuesday's Champions League match by Achim Beierlorzer, who managed to win 2-1 against the English champions from Manchester with his charges after goals from Szoboszlai and Silva, and thanks to this win Leipzig secured at least a place in the knockout stages of the Europa League. Achim Beierlorzer only coached this game and on Thursday he handed over his temporary job to the new coach Domenico Tedesco. Domenico Tedesco is a German-Italian coach who led Spartak Moscow to second place in the league during his last stint. Fans can look forward to the handsome combination of football that Tedesco professes. Monchengladbach has been on a roll this season. At the beginning of the season, for example, Monchengladbach was able to turn Bayern Munich into points at home, but then there are games like the last one against Freiburg when the visitors scored all their goals until the 37th minute. The interesting thing about this match is that six different scorers scored. In addition, Monchengladbach also lost their game against Cologne 4-1 before this game, and Adi Hutter's managerial chair is starting to get vacated. Adi Hutter, like his American counterpart, arrived at the club in the summer and was expected to try and get the club back into the Champions League. If the Austrian coach wants to keep his job, he and his team will have to start winning away games in which this year his team scored only 4 points out of 21 possible. Monchengladbach, however, is not going to have it easy, as Leipzig have only lost once at home this season and have scored 15 of the 18 possible points.

The visitors will only miss young German defender Jordan Beyer, who will be absent due to a hamstring injury.
