Roma vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
The hosts are currently leading the pack in Group J, albeit only on goal difference. Despite making light work of Istanbul Basaksehir in their opening clash, the home team were forced to share the spoils against Wolfsberger AC after the final scores read 1-1.
Roma have also admitted defeat just once at home since the start of this season, that too in all competitions. At the moment, the Italian outfit are unbeaten in their past four games. The last of which was a stalemate against Sampdoria in the Serie A.
Borussia Monchengladbach, on the other hand, will be making the trip to Rome on the back of a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund. The away side are yet to register their first win in the group stage as well. So far, they have garnered just a point from their last two clashes.
In all honesty, Marco Rose’s men have not been showing any conviction whatsoever in their European fixtures. They lost by a 4-0 scorecard against Wolfsberger, following which they managed not more than a 1-1 draw against Istanbul Basaksehir.
To make matters worse, the guests have emerged victoriously just once in their last three outings in all competitions.
It is also worth mentioning that the Italian outfit are one of the most competitive sides in the Serie A. And even more so when they have home advantage at hand. As such, Roma are sizing up to be the favorites to come out on top at the last blast of the whistle.
Additionally, scoring goals has been the home team’s strong suit in their clashes here and have so far found the back of the net eleven times. The Germans know their way around the final third as well and have scored a goal or more each, in four of their last five outings.
Considering that the hosts netted four in their last Europa League clash here too, expect over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards without fail.
