Borussia M’gladbach is hosting Inter at Borussia-Park in round 5 in the UEFA Champions League.
Borussia is on a 2-game winning streak, and surprisingly, they are at the top of their group in the Champions League. Borussia has scored 10 goals in their last 2 Champions League games, and they have beaten Shakhtar twice in a row. In their last Bundesliga game, Borussia has beaten Schalke 4-1 at home. Borussia has scored 14 goals so far in the Champions League while conceding only 4 goals. Plea has scored 3 goals, while Bensebaini, Thuram, and Stindl each added 2 goals. Plea and Stindl have also added 2 assists each. Hofmann and Elvedi are injured, while Bensebaini is still questionable for this game. In their last Champions League game against Shakhtar at home, Borussia has had 46% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 82% of the correct passes. Borussia has had a fantastic game in the attacking end, and they have won this game 4-0. With a win in this game, Borussia would have secured their spot in the next stage, but if they lose, they could still end up in the Europa League.
Inter has won 3 of their last 4 games, but two of those games were in Serie A, while one was a friendly game. Inter still hasn’t won a game in the Champions League, and they are in the last place of their group. Inter’s only chance is to win here, and hope for other scores to go their way. In their last game against Real Madrid at home, Inter has had only 37% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 2 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 87% of the correct passes. Inter has lost this game 0-2, but it might have ended differently if Vidal hasn’t conceded a red card because of his stupidity. Inter has scored 4 goals so far, and only Shakhtar is weaker than them in this group. Inter’s defense has been decent with 7 conceded goals. Lukaku has scored 2 goals for Inter, while Martinez and Perisic added 1 goal each. Barella, Bastoni, and Martinez have each added 1 assist. Vecino and Nainggolan are injured, Padelli, Brozovic, and Kolarov are still in quarantine. Vidal is suspended because of the red card. Before the season started, I had Inter to be the biggest favorite in Serie A, and they have started well, but they lost all consistency, and their defense is a mess. This is a crucial game for Inter in the Champions League, and they need to play their best game yet.
The one and only game between M’gladbach and Inter ended in a 2-2 draw, and that was when Inter was the home team. Inter must win this game if they want to have a shot at advancing past the group stage, and I will give it a shot with Inter here.
