It is 17th round of the Bundesliga, and in this round B. Monchengladbach welcomes W.Bremen.
B. Monchengladbach occupies the 8th position on the table with 25 points won, only 4 points away from the 4th position, and there is a big crowd at the top. It will be a very interesting fight by the end of the season for the top 4 places leading to Europa League.
When it comes to performance B. Monchengladbach has two triumphs in the last five rounds with two draws and one defeat, before 2 rounds they defeated Bayern after a big turnaround, and then in the last round they drew against Stuttgart.
On the other hand, Werder Bremen occupies a solid 12th position and has collected 18 points so far. They play on and off throughout the season, and in the last round Werder defeated Augsburg at home. They are currently 6 points away from the position that leads to the playoffs and are in the safe zone, so they are probably relieved at this moment.
Now Werder has a very difficult away game where everything but defeat would be a great result. My pick for this match is B. Monchengladbach victory.
Borussia showed quality this season in both domestic championship and the UEFA Champions League, and if they give their best in the future, I expect that they could reach the goal this season as well, and that is a place among the first four teams that leads to Champions League.
Realistically, if B. Monchengladbach managed to defeat the current champion Bayern, and that after falling behind 0:2, it is surely expected to justify the role of the favorite against W.Bremen, which is objectively though opponent.
