Borussia Monchengladbach vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match Analysis and Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach look set to avoid Europe League demotion this weekend as the side welcomes Shakhtar Donetsk this week. The Group B clash schedules for Wednesday at Borussia Park with kickoff at 8:55 pm.

In the reverse fixture earlier this month, Gladbach took home the win in an epic thrashing of the side that ended in a 6-0 win. The match saw Alassane net a hat-trick for the side.

The 6-0 win marked the German’s side biggest victory in the European competition. Furthermore, the win took the side to the top of Group B ahead of their Ukrainian visitors this Wednesday.

Marco Rose’s side currently remains unbeaten across the competition with three points secured from their last three exploits. A win this week will surely guarantee the side a spot in the last 16 knockout stages. Inter Milan and Real Madrid are playing against each other in the group, with one of them guarantee to drop points.

On the other hand, Shakhtar Donetsk shocked the entire world after pulling off a 3-2 win against Real Madrid. The shock was that the side missed many first-team players due to coronavirus scare in the camp.

The side continued their impressive displays against title rivals in a dramatic 3-0 away win to Dynamo Kyiv. Rose has more men on his camp to choose from compared to their previous meeting that secured the win.
