Monchengladbach vs Istanbul Basaksehir Prediction
Borussia Monchengladbach completed back to back wins in Group J after they took down Wolfsberger on the road with a 1-0 scorecard, despite losing 4-0 to the same foe in the reverse clash. The hosts were certainly much the better side in their most recent matchup though and finished the ninety minutes with twice as many shots on target as their foes.
It is also worth mentioning that the home side are on a stellar form at the moment. The German outfit have been at the losing end just once in their last seven games in all competitions. They even pulled off a 2-1 win over the mighty Bayern Munich in their last domestic clash.
With eight points in the bag, the hosts are currently the front runners to top Group J. On the other hand, Istanbul Basaksehir were at the losing end of a 3-0 scorecard in their last clash with AS Roma at home.
The visitors have stumbled twice already, one of which was on the road. To make matters worse, Istanbul Besaksehir are part of a far inferior domestic campaign and are not familiar with taking on sides of this stature on a regular basis.
Furthermore, the guests managed no more than a 1-1 draw in their last clash with this foe. With Borussia Monchengladbach on a seven-match winning streak on home soil, Istanbul Basaksehir certainly have no reason to have their hopes up come Thursday.
In addition, the hosts have been an absolute threat in the final third. They have been keen on racking up the goal-scoring charts at Borussia-Park. The home side have been consistent in scoring two goals or more in each of their past seven games here in all competitions.
Meanwhile, three of the five goals for Istanbul Basaksehir so far have come from their clashes on the road. As such, with home advantage intact, count on Borussia Monchengladbach to turn this one into a high scoring affair by all means.
