Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Borussia M’gladbach will be aiming to move one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League last 32 when they take on Wolfsberger at Merkur Arena. Die Fohlen are hungry for revenge as they were hammered by the Austrian side at Stadion im Borussia-Park 4-0 earlier in the process, and given the home team’s current form, away win should be considered.
Borussia M’gladbach have been producing splendid displays in both Bundesliga, and Europa League of late, which is probably the main reason why away win should be considered. The hosts, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back in recent weeks. Since Wolfsberger have little to play for in their penultimate group game, we predict that the Germans are going to pick up all three points from the Merkur Arena showdown. Marcus Thuram, who scored a late winner in the 2-1 victory over Roma, is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition back-line.
