Borussia Monchengladbach News and Form – Can the Germans upset Roma?

There is a big night needed at home by Borussia Monchengladbach. One positive they have is that they won more games than they have lost against Italian opponents in a W5 D8 L4 record. Five of the drawn games in that sequence have been in the last eight home games for Monchengladbach against Italian teams. They need a little more than that on the night. Monchengladbach have suffered just one home defeat before against Italian opposition, which was against Fiorentina in 2017.

The Foals are now on a five-match winless streak of form at home against Italian visitors, their last win in such a fixture happening in 1975. Monchengladbach have failed to take a win in any of their last six home games in European competition (D3 L3) so they have struggled in that department.

An added-time penalty from Lars Stindl got them their point at Roma on Matchday Three. How important could that goal prove to be? After their opening 4-0 loss at home against Wolfsburg, the Bundesliga side then played out a 1-1 draw against Istanbul Basaksehir on Matchday Two.

Roma News and Form – Can Roma win in Germany?

Roma are holding a position at the top of the group, but Group J is wide open. But if they could take a win in Germany on Thursday night, the Italians would be in a far more comfortable position. From their 13 previous visits to Germany, Roma have taken only two wins in a really poor record of W2 D1 L10. So that is a statistic which makes this game really interesting. The last four visits that Roma have made to Germany have been in the Champions League, from which they only took a D1 L3 record.

But Roma are currently undefeated in their last 14 Europa League group stage matches (W8 D6). Just once in the group stage of the competition have they suffered an away loss and that was at Basel in the inaugural season of the competition in 2008. Since then, Roma have picked up a W2 D4 record on the road in the group stage of the Europa League. This campaign started with an easy 4-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir before taking a 1-1 draw at Austrian debutante Wolfsburg.

Borussia Monchengladbach v Roma Predictions

Borussia Monchengladbach to win: The setup here is fascinating. You imagine that the Germans realise that they have to throw the kitchen sink at this one because this is their big chance to haul themselves fully into the qualification picture. A win puts them ahead of Roma, who have terrible form in Germany. Back a narrow home win.
