Marco Rose wants to end RB Leipzig's away curse with three defeats in a row at Borussia Mönchengladbach. However, after three recent Bundesliga wins, the head coach believes the pressure is on the still winless hosts. "Gladbach has a very strong team in terms of soccer - but they haven't yet got the results they want this season. Gladbach has a duty to itself to make up for the first half against Darmstadt in front of its own crowd," Rose said ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga match (3:30 p.m./Sky) at Borussia-Park. Gladbach had still fetched a 3:3 after a 0:3 deficit in Darmstadt.
For the Saxons, however, there were last three away defeats in Gladbach with a goal difference of 1:7. Those were also the only victories of the Borussians, who had to accept eight defeats in a total of 14 league duels. For Rose himself, it is the second return to his old stomping grounds. "I always like to come back to Borussia Park because I simply still know a lot of people there whom I like very much and also still have contact with. You can assume that it will be emotional."
First of all for RB sports director Max Eberl, who meets his ex-club, where he was 23 years with a lot of heart and soul professional, youth functionary, manager, sports general manager and also darling of the masses. The announcement of his move to RB after retiring for health reasons enraged many Borussia fans.
