Borussia Monchengladbach Double Chance (Win or Draw)
Reason for Prediction
Real Madrid will be desperate to avoid making history for all the wrong reasons on Wednesday evening, when they welcome Borussia Monchengladbach to Spain for a pivotal Champions League Group B encounter.
A return of just two wins from their first five group matches has left Los Blancos behind the leading teams in third spot, and if Real fail to win on Wednesday, they will be eliminated from this stage of the Champions League for the first time ever.
Standing in Real’s path to the Last 16 are current table toppers Borussia Monchengladbach, who have excelled in a tough group that few gave them a chance of navigating successfully.
Marco Rose’s talented team were unbeaten in four Group B games before their 3-2 reverse to Inter on match day five, and Gladbach might have secured their passage to the knockout phase already had they not thrown away a two-goal cushion against Real Madrid inside the last three minutes of the teams’ first clash in Germany back in October.
With the pressure on the hosts likely to be intense in Wednesday’s rematch in Madrid, Gladbach are worth backing to avoid defeat again, especially when you consider that the low on confidence Los Blancos have won just twice in their last six assignments in all competitions.
Borussia Monchengladbach meanwhile, tasted defeat just twice in their last 14 fixtures, and their ability to pull off results as the underdog makes them superb value in the double chance market this week, while our correct score prediction tips the teams to share the spoils for a second time in another 2-2 draw.
Gladbach both scored and conceded at least twice in three of their five Champions League group matches so far this term, and with the high scoring pattern in their continental contests already set, more goals are expected when the Bundesliga side visit Madrid this week.
Real Madrid vs Gladbach – Away or draw
