Borussia Monchengladbach vs Young Boys
2016/17 Champions League Play-off.
Date: Wednesday, 24 August 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK,
Venue: Borussia Park (Monchengladbach).
The Borussia Park Stadion will witness a top clash on Wednesday, as Monchengladbach hosts Young boys for the second leg clash of the Champions League play-off fixture.
Borussia Monchengladbach have been on a superb run, their pre-season campaign saw them lost only once in twelve games. They were victorious in the first leg of this fixture, they defeated Young Boys on the road 1-3 last Tuesday. They will ready themselves for another win to keep heir good run of form before the new Bundesliga season.
Young Boys needs to work hard to upturn the 2 goal deficit they conceded at home in the first leg of this fixture. They did well in the previous stage, kicking out Shakhtar Donetsk but M’Gladbach were too much for them last week. The Swiss boys had more chance on goal than their opponents, but were unable to convert most of them. They will be needing more goals and perhaps a clean sheet to see them through.
Monchengladbach vs Young Boys: Head to Head
This game will be the third meeting between the two teams, they have played twice in the past. They first played in July during the pre-season campaign, a game which ended in stalemate as they played out 3-3. They met again last week for the first leg of this encounter, the game went in favour of the Germans.
Monchengladbach vs Young Boys: Prediction
These two teams are on a good run of form, the Germans are currently on an eight game unbeaten streak in all competitions, as they have won 6 games and drawn 2. Also the Germans has lost just one game at home in their last eleven hone games in all competitions. They are also unbeaten in their last 2 Champions League home game.
The Swiss have won 3 of their last 5 games, they have also lost 2. Their last game was a 7-2 thumping of Lausanne, which saw 7 different players on the score sheet. They have been poor away, with just 2 win in 7 away games in all competitions.
I predict a win for the Germans, considering their form they are the better team and are favourites in the game. I also expect them to score at least 2 goals.
Monchengladbach vs Young Boys: Tips
- Gladbach to win at 1.40.
- Over 2.5 goals at 1.36
- Gladbach to win and both teams to score at 2.37.
