Borussia Mönchengladbach vs. Arminia Bielefeld
At an entirely unusual time, Gladbach and Bielefeld close out Matchday 4 of the Bundesliga at Borussia-Park on Sunday evening at 19:30. While the visitors ended their first 3 games all with a remix, the first 3 matchdays were quite a washout for Gladbach. For the opener, they delivered a really good game against the record champions, but in the end could not get beyond a 1:1. They then lost both games against Union and Leverkusen and are currently 15th in the table. Find out in this Gladbach – Bielefeld tip whether we think the Foals will come out of the crisis.
Last season, the Arminen didn’t stand a chance against the Borussians and the last away win for Bielefeld in Gladbach was almost exactly 50 years ago. It was also the only away win for the East Westphalians in a direct comparison. In general, Bielefeld seems to be a welcome opponent for the Fohlenelf. They have won all of their last 9 games in the Bundesliga. We believe that they will follow it up with the 10th on Sunday evening and manage the liberation blow. Arminia, on the other hand, will be looking towards the bottom of the table, as expected.
Gladbach Form & Balance Check
After the promising start against Bayern, the fans and those responsible had certainly wished for something other than the two defeats in a row. Above all, the 0:4 against Leverkusen was extremely bitter, as they had not only clearly lost the game, but also injured two key players. Lainer and Thuram will be missing from the team for the time being. Against Union Berlin, the performance was much improved, but in the end it was not enough to make up for an early 2:0 deficit. Accordingly, the Foals are under pressure against Bielefeld and are almost obliged to win.
Does Adi Hütter fit in at Gladbach?
At Frankfurt, the Austrian has stood for an extremely intense playing philosophy, which at times was simply too much for the team and became increasingly tired towards the end of the season. As a result, Eintracht twice squandered a sensational starting position. So far, Hütter has relied on a four-man backline at Gladbach and deviated from the usual three-man backline. This system obviously still has to find its feet and so far the start of the season has been quite bumpy. Nevertheless, we assume that the team will soon have settled in and that Borussia will be a contender for the international places.

Bielefeld form & balance check
The fact that Arminia Bielefeld managed to stay in the league last season was tantamount to a sensation. They had by far the lowest squad value and managed to stay in the league with no less than 26 goals of their own. They strengthened themselves well for the new season, but also had to let go of some of the key players from the previous season. Unfortunately, it was not possible to sign the strong Japanese player Ritsu Doan again, which means that a lot of quality is missing in the offensive. Voglsammer has also left the team and the East Westphalians have almost completely restructured their attack. Only Fabian Klos has been retained in the offensive area.
Awaiting Bielefeld the usual difficult 2nd year?
Often teams that have sensationally kept the class after promotion pretty much crash the following year. This has also happened to Bielefeld many times in the past. They have improved their squad and are also well-positioned across the board, but the competition is once again very high. We don’t want to shout about it, but it’s quite possible that Arminia will be among the narrower circle of relegation candidates.
Bielefeld facts & stats

Predicted line-up – last update on 12 September 2021
Young Scally could replace Jordan Beyer at right back for Gladbach as the youngster has looked a little unsafe of late. Ginter is likely to return to the starting eleven after his Covid illness. Zakaria is also an option for the first eleven. For Bielefeld, we expect a switch to the slightly more defensive 4-2-3-1 formation. Possible options for the 6 are Kunze or Fernandes. Offensively, the variant with Hack and Schöpf is the most likely. Laursen has been slightly injured lately, so he is not sure to play on Sunday yet.
