Matchday 1 of the new Bundesliga season sees Hoffenheim pay Borussia Mönchengladbach a visit at the Borussia-Park in what promises to be a gruelling affair.

Borussia Mönchengladbach bid welcome to Hoffenheim, who ended last season as number 9 in the Bundesliga. The hosts can look back on a season which saw them end up as number 10.

Since both Borussia Mönchengladbach and Hoffenheim are looking to start their season on a good note, we are in for a tough fight over their first points of the season this coming Saturday.

Borussia Mönchengladbach are confident they will be scoring goals in their next assignment in the Bundesliga, as they show off very admirable numbers from their past ten matches. The hosts scored 2.2 goals on average per match, or 22 goals in total, while allowing 13 goals against, for an average of 1.3 per outing. They managed three clean sheets along the way.

Hoffenheim are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 11 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.1 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of 24 goals, and while Hoffenheim claimed two clean sheets, they conceded an average of 2.4 goals per match.

Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Hoffenheim Preview

In their last six Bundesliga home matches, Borussia Mönchengladbach have three wins, while they've drawn two and lost one. They scored 14 and conceded eight goals.

While a title race is perhaps a too optimistic a longthrow, a podium finish does not look beyong Borussia Mönchengladbach, should they manage to catch a strong momentum.

Hoffenheim claimed two wins against one draw and three defeats in their last six away matches in the Bundesliga. The scoreline from these matches reads 14 goals conceded and six scored.

In a season where everything runs absolutely smoothly Hoffenheim might be able to surprise. However, a finish inside the top half of the Bundesliga looks the most realistic scenario.

Borussia Mönchengladbach are in decent enough shape to make them the value bet, when facing Hoffenheim. In their current form, we find it difficult to build an argument for the visitors to steal a point here.
