Coming into this fixture, Borussia Monchengladbach are in great form in the Champions League as they sit top of Group B on five points with a goal difference of six. They are also one of five teams in the tournament to be unbeaten after three games. In the previous fixture against Shakhtar Donetsk away, Marco Rose’s side won by a margin of 6-0 with Alassane Plea netting a hat-trick. Unfortunately for the German side, he has been ruled out of this fixture through injury.

As of now, Borussia Monchengladbach odds for Monchengladbach to win and over 3.5 goals in the match is priced at 2/1.
