Borussia Mochengladbach look to give themselves a chance of qualifying when they take on Juventus at Borussia Park knowing they simply must win to give themselves any chance of qualifying. M'gladbach have actually come into great form in recent weeks and will look at this game as an opportunity to give themselves a great chance to progress to the knockout stages. Raffael, Stindl and Xhaka will lead the way for the german side and given how well they played in the first tie in Italy I see no reason that Borssia Mochengladbach should be such huge underdogs here at home.
Juventus have been terrible this season, it took a 94th minute winner from Quadrado at the weekend for Juve to avoid the embarressment dropping yet more points at the weekend. Simply put Juventus have not replaced the key players that left in the summer, while it was always going to be difficult to replace Tevez and Pirlo its the loss of Arturo Vidal that has hurt them most in my opinion. Vidal's contributions with both goals and assists was key to Juventus long run in the Champions League last season and his exit to Bayern has been tough on Juve. Morata, Dybala and Zaza are trying their best to fill the void in the attacking third but they are struggling. Paul Pogba has also not been at his best and Kheidera's signing has not been as smooth a transition as Allegri would have hoped.
For me this is a no brainer. Its a max bet on Borussia Mochengladbach +1 and I think the form of both sides dictates this. On top of that I am going to spread a little on Borrusia straight up as well. This is a good side and Juventus are not in a good place. When we get chances like this we have to take them.
