Borussia Monchengladbach Preview – Can ‘Gladbach get their first win of the group stage and keep qualification hopes alive?

It’s been contrasting fortunes for Borussia Monchengladbach as the sit top of the Bundesliga following a fine start domestically but bottom of their Europa League section with no wins in their first three matches. Coach Marco Rose will not be overly concerned with his team’s current placing in the group as despite only having two points, Gladbach are still very much in contention for qualification.Their start could not have been worse when losing 4-0 at home to Austrian side Wolfsberger but they have recovered well from that game, going on to pick up points in Istanbul and Rome. The quality this Gladbach team possess if there for all to see and if they can get three points at home on Thursday then the situation looks very different all of a sudden.

Both teams to score in 1st half

Roma Preview – Will Roma maintain unbeaten record in this group and remain top of the pile?

Roma are still unbeaten after three games but Paulo Fonseca will be wondering how his team are not further clear of the other teams in this section. It looked for all money that the Italians were going to record a 1-0 win over Gladbach at home a fortnight ago – that was until Scottish referee Willie Collum intervened to award a penalty for an alleged handball. Of course, as we all know now, the ball actually hit Chris Smalling and that incredible mistake ended up costing Fonseca and his men two points.

Like their opponents this week, Roma’s form domestically has been very good of late. Saturday’s 2-1 win at home to Napoli was their third straight win in Serie A and their eighth game in all competitions without losing. It remains just one defeat all season and they travel to Germany knowing that avoiding defeat puts them in a good position with two games to come.

Key-Facts – Borussia Monchengladbach vs Roma

Borussia Monchengladbach v Roma Betting Advice

Most people would have expected these two clubs to qualify for the knockout phase from this section when the draw was made back in August. There’s still and outside chance of that happening but the loser in this game will have a job on their hands to recover in the remaining matches. Gladbach will feel they have underperformed in the first half of this section and looking to make amends for their previous home result in Europe. Roma are going to be stubborn opponents, however, and come into this game in excellent form.

There was only two goals when the teams met a couple of weeks ago but this one is likely to be a higher scoring encounter. Gladbach’s last five home games have all went over 2.5 goals and contained a total of 15. With Roma also in good goal scoring form, over 2.5 goals looks the way to go.
