RB Leipzig host Borussia Monchengladbach at Red Bull Arena on Saturday (March 11) at the bundesliga.
The hosts have had mixed results recently but are still alive in the Bundesliga race. Leipzig lost 2-1 to in-form Borussia Dortmund in their last league outing. They were already two goals down before Emil Forsberg scored a consolation goal from close range in the second half for his third league goal in as many games. Leipzig is fourth in the standings with 42 points from 23 games.
Meanwhile, Mönchengladbach have had their problems this season, finding themselves in the bottom half of the league table. They drew 0-0 against Freiburg in their last game. Monchengladbach perhaps deserved more of the game, but squandered their chances before Ramy Bensebaini was sent off in the second half. The visitors are mid-table in 10th place with 30 points from 23 games.
