Borussia Monchengladbach Vs Schalke O4
This one is finely posed after the two sides shared a tightly contested 1-1 draw in the first leg of this tie.
Monchengladbach have had the pleasure of juggling domestic and European commitments this season but will be largely disappointed with the way things have gone so far this year. The side have really failed to build on what was a breathtaking domestic performance last year. However, the team have not won in their previous two matches and will be hoping they can get something on home soil in this one, after putting in such a solid performance against Schalke in the first leg of this game.
Schalke were terrific last season and for large parts of the year look the team who won the Bundesliga title back in 2010. However, the side have really not been at the races for the last few months of this season. The team have some terrific players in their ranks, not least the likes of Huntelaar, Di Santo, Embolo, Uchida, Coke, and Sam. The team are quickly disappearing into mid table obscurity and will see this UEL match as the perfect opportunity to add some colour and perhaps some silverware to their season.
All the action went down in the first half of this match with both goals coming within the first thirty minutes of the match when the sides faced off last week. Hoffman gave Monchengladbach the lead after 15 minutes but Schalke came back with a vengeance, leveling things up after 25 minutes. The second half saw both teams huff and puff but neither had the ability or the quality to find that all important winning goal.
This is a tough one to call but I just fancy Schalke to edge this one. The side will make the most of any chances they get and after some good recent results, notably their 3-0 win over Augsburg over the weekend, Schalke will be very confident of getting a massive win in the UEL on Thursday evening. Double the away win with Burgstaller to pop up again and get his second of the tie at anytime during the game. The very best of luck and please be sure to enjoy the match, it should be a real cracker.
