The Bundesliga returns this weekend and sees a middling Borussia Monchengladbach take on the high-flying Stuttgart. The hosts have had a rollercoaster season and see themselves stuck in the bottom half, whereas Stuttgart have stuck in the top spots despite finishing 16th last season.

Borussia Monchengladbach currently sit 12th in the Bundesliga after 16 games. The Foals have four wins, five draws and seven losses, leaving them on just 17 points, only seven points above the relegation zone.

Monchengladbach actually have one of the better attacks in the Bundesliga, with 31 goals in 16 games, an average of 1.94 goals a game. However, their defence is another story. Monchengladbach are ranked 17th in the Bundesliga for goals conceded, having conceded 35 goals in 16 games, keeping just one clean sheet.

Stuttgart, on the other hand, sit third in the Bundesliga. In 16 games, Stuttgart have 11 wins, one draw and four losses which leaves them on 34 points, four points behind Bayern Munich and eight points behind Leverkusen.

Much like Monchengladbach, Stuttgart’s attack are delivering, scoring 37 goals already this season, an average of over two goals a game. But unlike Monchengladbach, Stuttgart are just as defensively sound. Stuttgart have kept six clean sheets, the second most in the league, and have conceded just 19 goals in 16 games.

Borussia Monchengladbach and Stuttgart have met 30 times in their histories. Stuttgart have the slightly better record in the fixture with 14 wins in comparison to Monchengladbach’s ten wins, with the other six games ending in a share of the points.

In 15 of the 30 meetings, both teams have been on the scoresheet and in 24 of 30 there has been over one goal.
