Kick-off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Merkur-Arena (Graz).
Wolfsberger’s stellar start to their Europa campaign was certainly short-lived. And now, with Borussia Monchengladbach finally settling into an unbeaten groove, the home side’s chances of salvaging even a point are certainly looking bleak this week.

Wolfsberger vs Monchengladbach Prediction
Wolfsberger AC tasted success for the first time in two games after the hosts took down domestic opponents Mattersburg with a 4-1 scoreline last week. The hosts made a whopping twenty-three shots at goal in that matchup, ten of which were right on target, and restricted their foes from taking no more than six as well.
At the moment, the home side are sitting third in the Tipico Bundesliga, with an eight-point deficit behind second-placed LASK Linz. However, the hosts have not been coping well in their European matchups.
With just a win and a draw to boast of, Wolfsberger have hit rock bottom in Group J. The squad are without a win in their last three group clashes on the trot, the last of which was a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Basaksehir on home soil.
On the other hand, Borussia Monchengladbach will be making the trip to Merkur-Arena on the back of a disappointing 2-0 loss against Union Berlin, back in the Bundesliga. The surprise defeat has brought the visiting contingent’s three-match winning streak across all competitions to an abrupt halt as well.
Nevertheless, the visitors are still at the top of the ladder back in Germany. They are also sporting a one-point cushion over Wolfsberger in their European campaign as of now, and will be hoping to redeem themselves for the last h2h defeat they suffered.
It is also worth mentioning that the hosts are unbeaten in their last three clashes in Group J. They also bagged their first win in their most recent matchup with Italian giants AS Roma.
Sadly, the home side have not been able to recreate their winning form ever since their opening victory. Hence Wolfsberger are the outright underdogs to come out on top in this one.
Furthermore, Wolfsberger are without a win in their last three games on home soil. Meanwhile, Borussia Monchengladbach have stumbled just thrice on the road this season. With the visitors conceding four unanswered goals last time around, count on Borussia Monchengladbach to be keen on repaying the favor when they lock horns this Thursday.
