Our prediction for this Champions League match:
All eyes will be on Stadion im Borussia-Park when Borussia M’gladbach and Inter square off against each other in the Champions League group stages round 4. Die Fohlen have been playing above expectations in the elite competition this season, with the team leading the standings ahead of the visit of Inter. Borussia M’gladbach looked sharp in front of goal in back-to-back wins over Shakhtar Donetsk, and given their attacking potential, we are positive that the hosts will find the net in Tuesday’s clash.
Hofmann is sidelined with a thigh injury, while Bensebaini and Wolf are both out of contention through suspension. The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Borussia M’gladbach, and even though Arturo Vidal is banned, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Romelu Lukaku should be recalled to the starting XI after coming from the bench in the Serie A win over Sassuolo.
Highlighted Player (Yann Sommer):
After making 133 league appearances for Basel between 2007 and 2014, Yann Sommer joined Borussia Monchengladbach on March, 2014. The Swiss goalkeeper signed a five-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit and he was signed to replace Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who joined Barcelona.
Sommer made 34 appearances for Borussia M’gladbach in the 2014/2015 season and it has to be noted that he managed to keep 15 clean sheets. As a result, die Fohlen finished the season in third place in the standings. The Swiss shoot-stopper, though, was not as successful in the 2015/2016 season, keeping just 5 clean sheets, while conceding 50 goals in the process.
Sommer made his Switzerland debut on 30 May, 2012 in a 1-0 loss to Romania and he represented the Rossocrociati at both 2014 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2016. The shoot-stopper made 8 appearances for Switzerland on the road to Euro 2016 and he conceded eight goals in the process. Sommer played four games for the Rossocrociati at the tournament in France, conceding two goals, while keeping two clean sheets.
Highlighted Team (Inter):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
