Borussia Monchengladbach finished 16th in the Bundesliga and now face Bochum, 3rd place finishers in Bundesliga 2, in a 2-leg playoff to determine which of the two will play top-flight football next season.
Monchengladbach are a decent price at 8/11 with Betfred to win the opener at home and after 5 wins in the last 6 home games, including Hoffenheim, Freiburg and champions Dortmund (all ‘to nil’), look good to succeed again. Paddy Power have 13/8 about another win to nil for the home side while bet365 have them at 1/2 to go through over 2 legs.
Bochum are 9/2 () to get an all-important win but the best they can hope for is a draw, 11/4 with Ladbrokes. In fact, a comfortable win by at least 2 goals for Monchengladbach should be considered at 21/10 with Blue Square.
