Borussia Moenchengladbach vs Schalke 04 Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Borussia Moenchengladbach and Schalke 04 will be facing each other for the third time within the space of two weeks on Thursday night for their Europa League round of 16 decider. Schalke 04 were held to a 1-1 home draw last Thursday, despite the fact that they had over 20 goalscoring opportunities. Jonas Hofmann gave M’Gladbach the lead in the 15th minute, but Guido Burgstaller levelled the game ten minutes later. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Three of the last four meetings between these two sides have seen goals at both ends of the pitch, and I think this will be the case in this one also. Despite their recent struggle in front of their own fans, I’m backing M’Gladbach to pick up another win here. They hold an impressive head-to-head home record over Schalke 04, winning the last four home games and scoring at least three goals in each of these.

Both teams to score - Yes at 7/10

Borussia Moenchengladbach to win at 21/20

Borussia Moenchengladbach Preview

Borussia Moenchengladbach’s five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions ended at the weekend as they were beaten 2-1 on the road at Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga. This leaves M’Gladbach in 9th position in the Bundesliga table with 32 points to their name after 24 rounds, just three points off the top six. Scoring goals has been M’Gladbach’s main issue throughout this Bundesliga campaign as they hold one of the worst offensive records in the division, scoring just 30 goals in 24 league fixtures. Lars Stindl has been M’Gladach’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with just seven goals under his belt. The bad news is that Borussia Moenchengladbach have struggled for fluency in front of their own fans over the past three months, losing five of their last eight home fixtures across all competitions. The positive thing is that M’Gladbach have picked up victories in each of their last four home meetings with Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga, scoring at least three goals in each of these. However, Borussia Moenchengladbach are winless in their last four European home fixtures this season, losing two and drawing two in the process.

Schalke 04 Preview

On the contrary, Schalke 04 have finally returned to winning ways last weekend thanks to a comfortable 3-0 home victory over Augsburg. After his equaliser against Borussia Moenchengladbach last Thursday, Guido Burgstaller managed to score a brace at the weekend. Prior to this win, Schalke 04 were on a six-game winless streak across all competitions. Schalke currently sit in 11th position in the Bundesliga table with 30 points under their belts after 24 rounds, just four points clear of the bottom three. Similar to their Thursday’s opponents, Schalke have also struggled to find the back of the net throughout this Bundesliga campaign, as they hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 23 goals scored in 24 league fixtures. Away from home, Schalke 04 were on a four-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their back-to-back heavy defeats at the hands of Bayern Munich and Borussia Moenchengladbach in their most recent two trips. The good news is that Schalke have lost only one of their last ten European away games, while winning seven in the process. Head-to-head, Schalke have won two of their last four meetings with Borussia Moenchengladbach in all competitions.
