Borussia Mönchengladbach – Barcelona
Borussia Mönchengladbach are hosting Barcelona in a Champions League group stage game at the Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach.
After losing against Manchester City at the Ettihad Stadium, Andre Schubert’s team is obligated to take something from this game, if they want to keep their chances for something more in this tough group.
In their last Bundesliga game, Borussia Mönchengladbach didn’t face any trouble beating Ingolstadt at home, without conceiding a goal.
Barcelona on the other hand already started well in the Champions League, giving a nice beating to Celtic at the Camp Nou in their first game.
The Catalans will be without their biggest star Lionel Messi, who injured himself during the game against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish La Liga. This is not a reason for panic though, as Barcelona already showed during the weekend that they can score five goals even without Messi, beating Sporting Gijon in a spectacular way.
