Fiorentina vs Borussia Moenchengladbach Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Fiorentina will be aiming to build on their first-leg victory over Borussia Moenchengladbach when they welcome the Germans at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Thursday night for the second leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie. Fiorentina had a lower ball possession and fewer goalscoring opportunities than Borussia Moenchengladbach last week, but they managed to secure a 0-1 win thanks to a first-half goal from Federico Bernardeschi. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Fiorentina’s recent home form has been decent, as they are undefeated in the last seven home fixtures across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in six of these. Borussia Moenchengladbach have also enjoyed a decent run of form on the road over the past month, and they also scored a couple of goals in this term. This having been said, I’m expecting a high-scoring contest, and I’m also fancying M’Gladbach to register at least a draw in this one.

Fiorentina Preview

Although they have struggled for fluency throughout this 2016/17 competitive season, Fiorentina did well to secure a narrow 0-1 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach last week. They are now with a foot in the door to Europa League round of 16, and they now need just a draw on Thursday to qualify further in the competition. The bad news is that Fiorentina have suffered a 2-1 defeat on the road at AC Milan in the Serie A at the weekend. This leaves La Viola only in 8th position in the Serie A table with 40 points after 25 rounds, already eight points off the European places. Fiorentina managed a decent tally of 42 goals throughout their Serie A campaign, but they really struggled at the other end of the field. They have conceded 35 goals in 25 league outings, which is one of the worst defensive records in top ten. Fiorentina have been a strong side at the Stadio Artemio Franchi this season, having won six and draw six of their twelve home league fixtures. In addition, a 3-2 defeat against PAOK on matchday five ended Fiorentina’s four-game unbeaten home run in Europe this season. Fiorentina managed to reach the round of 32 last season, but they were beaten by the Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur. Khouma Babacar and Nikola Kalinic have been Fiorentina’s most dangerous players throughout their Europa League group stage campaign, as the pair bagged eight goals and five assists between them.

Borussia Moenchengladbach Preview

Borussia Moenchengladbach were on a three-game winning streak across all competitions prior to their 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Fiorentina last week. Furthermore, M’Gladbach followed this up with another 1-2 home loss against RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga at the weekend. Borussia Moenchengladbach had more chances to score than their opponents in the last two competitive outings, but they haven’t been very prolific in front of goal. Domestically, M’Gladbach currently stand in 11th spot in the Bundesliga table tied on 26 points with the 10th-placed Schalke 04, already eight points off the European places. Scoring goals has been M’Gladbach’s main issue throughout their Bundesliga campaign, as they have one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 23 goals scored in 21 league outings. Borussia Moenchengladbach’s away form in Europe this season has been a complete mixed bag, registering two victories by two-goal margins along with two 4-0 defeats. The good news is that M’Gladbach are on a four-game unbeaten streak on the road over the past month, winning three and drawing once in this term. Lars Stindl and Thorgan Hazard have been Borussia Moenchengladbach’s most in-form players throughout their Bundesliga campaign, as the pair have bagged 11 goals and 5 assists between them.
