BUNDESLIGA 2020-21 SEASON PREVIEW: Can Rose keep Borussia Monchengladbach at the top?

The appointment of Marco Rose has ushered Borussia Monchengladbach into a new era. One where they almost snatched the Bundesliga title from the clutches of their adversaries. 

While we can’t single out a singular star player from the team, that is kind of what their style is about. Collectively, Gladbach play some brilliant football and we look at their chances in the 20/21 season here. 

Key Players

  1. Marcus Thuram
  2. Yann Sommer
  3. Stefan Lainer
  4. Alassane Plea

Gladbach boast of a solid defence, organised by Swiss keeper Yann Sommer. His performance between the sticks has been brilliant in the 19/20 season and more of the same is expected to follow this year.

Stefan Lainer is one of the solid barriers in their defence, clearing things out on the right-hand side. On the other side, and into the attacking fold, Marcus Thuram has impressed in his first season and looks set for another great one.

Rounding things off, Alassane Plea will look to build on his 10 goals and 11 assists last season. Their attack looks unmistakably threatening this time.

Winning Points

Gladbach have plenty of quality and sync with each other. That is one of their greatest strengths. They are defensively solid and can shut out oppositions as well. 

With attackers like Thuram, Plea and captain Stindl, their chances of at least making the top 4 look good. 

Challenges

The main issue here is consistency. The club is good, but often not good enough to be consistent at the top. That is where teams like Bayern really stand out. 

Marco Rose’s biggest challenge has to be ensuring consistent performances from his players against oppositions, big and small. Should they be able to accomplish that, we could be in for quite a surprise this season. 

Transfer Activity

Valentino Lazaro and Hannes Wolf have been signed on a loan deal from Inter and Leipzig respectively. 

Wolf can be played as an attacking midfielder whereas Lazaro functions as a right midfielder or a right back. 

Lazaro has experience of the Bundesliga from his time at Hertha Berlin, along with Wolf. They can add some good quality as well as depth to their squad. 

Predicted Finish: 4th

Although they are a great attacking side and have a considerably solid defence, Gladbach look destined to be the last to ensure Champions League qualification. 

While there is plenty of opportunities for the club to have a surprise stretch at the top, they must ensure consistency in their games if they hope for something big this season.
