Real Madrid Preview – Can Zidane’s men spare their blushes?

A second defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk, this time in Ukraine, on Matchday 5 has left Real Madrid (W2 D1 L2) teetering on the brink of a first ever elimination from the group in Champions League competition. Making their 25th appearance at this stage, the 13-time European champions have always progressed on to the next round but now find themselves on the cusp of creating the wrong sort of history on Wednesday.

Beat Monchengladbach and this term’s lacklustre displays will quickly be consigned to the past, rarely spoken of again. That is what Zidane will be telling his players ahead of such an important night, when, if everything goes as it should, they can finish as high as first in the group. Moreover, they’ve already produced one clutch performance in Spain this season, winning a pulsating encounter with Inter Milan 3-2.

However, the worse case scenario entails them not winning and potentially finishing bottom of the section and without any European competition in the New Year. Having seen this team labour to a 3-2 defeat here against Shakhtar on Matchday 1, whilst conceding more goals throughout (1.8 per game) than in any previous group stage campaign, for once progression feels anything but a formality.



Draw & Both Teams to Score



Monchengladbach Preview – Scoring their way through to the last-sixteen?

As the competition’s joint-leading scorers, netting 16 times across their five group games this season at an average of 3.2 per game, it would almost be criminal were Monchengladbach (W2 D2 L1) not to reach the knockout rounds of the Champions League for the very first time. Their task is, at least, the simplest in Group B. So long as they avoid defeat on the final matchday, they will progress onto the Round of 16.

That their final encounter happens to be against the most decorated club in the competition’s history, who themselves require all three points to enhance their own qualifying prospects, suggests the point the Germans desire is likely to be anything but straightforward to acquire. Moreover, their record away to Spanish opposition is incredibly poor, with no win and five losses in their last seven such matches.

If Gladbach do remain true to form, Real Madrid must score more than twice to best the German side. The Foals scoring on at least two occasions in all five group games, putting a combined eight away goals past Inter Milan (2-2) and Shakhtar Donetsk (0-6), and have now scored two or more in six successive away fixtures in all competitions (W3 D2 L1) following Saturday’s 2-2 Bundesliga draw in Freiburg.

Real Madrid Vs Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Advice

Group H has seen a goal deluge and these teams have contributed handsomely. This season, Real Madrid are averaging 1.8 goals per game for both goals scored as well as conceded (9GF/9GA), seeing all five fixtures deliver a minimum of two match goals. A competition-high 16 goals have so far been scored by Gladbach meanwhile, who have seen all of their group games feature four or more goals.


Real Madrid Vs Monchengladbach – Key Facts:

  • The Spanish side will qualify with a win, or a draw should Shakhtar lose to Inter Milan, with Real Madrid having never previously failed to make it beyond the group stage.
  • A win or a draw will suffice for Gladbach, who come into Matchday 6 atop Group B having netted the joint-most goals (16) in the competition.
  • Across their combined ten group matches so far, eight featured at least four goals with the meeting in Germany ending 2-2 after Gladbach earlier led 2-0.


Even in a contest of such magnitude, there is every prospect that we bare witness to another end-to-end, goal-laden encounter between sides which played out a 2-2 draw in Germany earlier in the group. Real Madrid have to win while Gladbach need only avoid losing, but don’t expect the latter – who have netted two or more in each of their last six competitive away matches (W3 D2 L1) – to set up cautiously.
