Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League
Borussia Monchengladbach welcome Barcelona to the Borussia Park, in the second round of matches from this season’s Champions League group stage games .
Monchengladbach come into this match on the back of a 2-0 win against Ingolstadt, with goals from Stindl (42) and Wendt (76).
This was an excellent result, to keep a clean sheet and get three points coming into this match will be massive for their confidence.
Great Season So Far
They have also enjoyed an excellent domestic season, they find themselves fourth in the Bundesliga with just the one defeat so far.
Their last match in the Champions League was a 4-0 hammering at Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola’s side easily brushing them aside.
Three goals from Sergio Aguero (8, 28 pen, 77), and a Kelechi Iheanacho effort in the 91st minute ensured a perfect start for Guardiola.
Hard Start For Gladbach
Borussia Monchengladbach endured a tough start and this fixture will not be any easier, with the Catalan side one of the favourites to win the tournament.
Barcelona are in excellent form, it is likely that the top two spots will be occupied by City and Barcelona, with Monchengladbach and Celtic left to scrap for the third spot.
The Catalans record in Germany isn’t that great, with just 8 wins from 27 attempts.
Monchengladbach will be hoping to ruin former keeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen’s return to Borussia Park as well.
Barcelona In Red Hot Form
Barcelona come into this game on the back of 5-0 thrashing of Sporting Gijon away from the Camp Nou.
Goals from Luis Suarez (29), Rafinha (32), Neymar (81, 88) and Arda Turan in the 85th minute completed an emphatic scoreline for Luis Enrique’s side.
They drew their heavyweight clash against Atletico 1-1 prior to that huge win, they have had a mixed start to their La Liga campaign so far.
Despite that they find themselves second in La Liga, just a point behind rivals Real Madrid.
Great Season So Far
Barcelona have started the season in mixed fashion, with four wins, one draw and one defeat from their opening six matches.
Their only defeat this season has been a surprise 2-1 defeat at home to Alaves, with a much-changed Barcelona side suffering to the newly promoted side.
In three of their last four matches, Barcelona have scored more than five goals, with a 5-0 win against Gijon, a 5-1 win against Leganes and a 7-0 win over Celtic in their previous Champions League tie.
Another Great Season Ahead?
Their last win in the Champions League saw Barcelona demolish Celtic 7-0 at the Camp Nou.
A Messi hattrick (3, 27, 60), Neymar (50), Iniesta (59) and a double from Luis Suarez (75, 88) completed the route.
This will give Barcelona confidence heading into this match, particularly with their La Liga form currently, despite the absence of Lionel Messi through injury.
They will be looking to make it two wins from two in this season’s group stages, Barcelona will be looking to win the competition outright this season, looking to take the title from bitter rivals Real Madrid.
