Borussia Moenchengladbach vs Fiorentina Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Borussia Moenchengladbach and Fiorentina will be facing each other in the first leg of their Europa League, round of 32, with both sides looking to continue their good run of form. Borussia Moenchengladbach registered a 0-1 victory on the road at Werder Bremen last weekend in the Bundesliga thanks to an early goal from Thorgan Hazard. Meanwhile, Fiorentina won 3-0 at home over Udinese last time out in the Serie A thanks to three goals from Borja Valero, Khouma Babacar and Federico Bernardeschi. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Borussia Moenchengladbach Preview

After an awful start to this 2016/2017 competitive season, Borussia Moenchengladbach managed to put their campaign back on track. They enter the fray on the back of a five-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, winning four and drawing once in the process. They beat Greuther Furth 0-2 in the DFB Pokal Cup a week ago and followed this up with a narrow 0-1 win at Werder Bremen last time out in the Bundesliga. The recent victory lifts M’Gladbach to 10th spot in the Bundesliga table with 26 points after 20 rounds, just seven points off the top six. Borussia Moenchengladbach were knocked out from the Champions League group stage, but they finished in third spot and booked their place into the Europa League round of 32. The bad news is that M’Gladbach are winless in their last three European games, conceding eight goals in the process while scoring just once. Furthermore, Borussia Moenchengladbach have failed to win any of their three European home fixtures this season, recording two draws and one defeat in this term. The last time when M’Gladbach reached the Europa League round of 32 was in 2014/2015 season when they lost at the hands of Sevilla. Lars Stindl, Thorgan Hazard and Raffael have been M’Gladbach’s most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the attacking trio bagged 16 goals and four assists between them in the Bundesliga.

Fiorentina Preview

Fiorentina’s recent form in the Serie A has been decent as they have only lost once in their last seven league outings. During their recent run of form, Fiorentina were knocked out from the Coppa Italia following a narrow 1-0 defeat at SSC Napoli, which means they can now focus only on their Serie A and Europa League competitions. Their recent 3-0 victory over Udinese lifted Fiorentina into 8th place in the Serie A table tied on 40 points with the 7th-placed AC Milan, five points off the European places. Fiorentina looked very solid going forward throughout their Serie A campaign as they hold one of the best offensive records in the division, scoring 41 goals in 24 league outings. Regarding their Europa League group stage campaign, La Viola finished on top of the group J table, having scored 15 goals and conceded just 6 in their six group outings. Their recent form in the Europa League has seen them winning four of their last five group fixtures, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Fiorentina are undefeated in their last three European away games, winning two and drawing once in this term. La Viola reached the Europa League round of 32 last season, but they were eliminated by the Premier League side Tottenham. Nikola Kalinic and Federico Bernardeschi have been Fiorentina’s most influential players on the pitch throughout this Serie A campaign, having scored ten goals each. Kalinic and Khouma Babacar have been Fiorentina’s top scorers during the Europa League group stage with four goals each under their belts.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both sides have enjoyed a decent run of form recently and both looked very solid going forward. M’Gladbach’s recent home form hasn’t been very good, while Fiorentina have struggled for fluency on the road of late. It’s difficult to predict the winner in this one, but I’m expecting goals.
