Our football match prediction:
Borussia M’gladbach have been having their ups and downs this season. Die Fohlen are pretty unpredictable and despite being regarded as favourites to win Thursday’s football match against Fiorentina, Dieter Hecking’s men were beaten by the Serie A outfit at their Stadion im Borussia-Park in the Europa League last 32, first leg. The Bundesliga side, though, should not be written off just yet and they are certainly capable of spoiling Viola’s party at Stadio Artemio Franchi. Thorgan Hazard has been in a fine form in 2017 and Eden’s brother will be the man to watch in the away team. Fiorentina head into the game following a 2-1 loss to Milan at Stadio San Siro and, taking everything into account, we predict that Borussia M’gladbach will advance to the last 16. It has to be noted that die Fohlen defeated Celtic in Glasgow in the Champions League group stages earlier this season.
