Istanbul Basaksehir vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: Thursday, 3 October 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul).
With Roma, Basaksehir, and Monchengladbach, the Group J of the Europa is already competitive enough. On top of that, the supposed minnow of the lot, Wolfsberger recorded a massive 0-4 win on the road against the Germans the last day to further complicate things.
As such, Borussia is facing an oncoming crisis, and they need the win in this tie at any cost to not let their chances of progressing get affected.
Basaksehir, meanwhile, is struggling to keep the levels they had shown during the last campaign. As of now, they are surprisingly placed eighth in their domestic table and have conceded a total of eight goals from their six fixtures so far.
Last time around, they had been defensive beasts. Fans hope to see a glimpse of that team this Thursday.

- These two squads have fought just once, and then, the Germans recorded a massive 1-5 win on the road. The fixture had taken place just two months back.
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
The Foals have the confidence of their enormous win over this opponent merely weeks back, that too away from home. On top of that, they need to bounce back desperately after their loss in the opener against the Austrians.
Moreover, Istanbul has not been the same group they had been in 2018-19 and is going through a period of off-form.
As such, count on the guests to avoid a loss at the least.
In regards to goals, the home advantage will surely come to play, and so will the four goals that the Prussians let in at home in the opener. Finally, the Turkish outfit too was dealt a huge defeat by Roma in the last match-day, and they too will be desperate to get back on track.
As such, BTTS seems like a great opportunity this Thursday.
