Borussia M vs Schalke Prediction 16 March 2017

Tournament: Europa League
Location: Borussia Park Stadium
Match date: 16.03.2017 at 20:05

On March 16 2017 at 20:05 in the regular game of the Europa League play-off Round of 16 at the Borussia Park Stadium the local Borussia Monchengladbach play against Schalke.

In the current season Borussia neither deserve the position on the top of the standings of the Bundesliga nor their previous season’s result fourth place. They only have ten games left to play in the championship and they are now on the 9th place in the table of the national elite division with 32 points gained 3 points below the Euro Cups zone. Moreover, Borussia lost to Hamburger 2:1 in the previous game, yet that loss happened because most of the players of the main squad didn’t play as they were probably preparing for the upcoming match in the Europa League. In the first leg game of the current stage of the competition Borussia, in that match the visitors were predictably protecting, yet they still managed to score once on the 15th minute. Anyway, that goal didn’t let them win the match.

As for Schalke, they also show much worse results compared to the previous season when they managed to finish the Bundesliga on the 5th position in the standings. The victory against Augsburg in the previous match 3:0 was the first one in the latest four matches of the national elite division. Moreover, Schalke are 5 points below the Euro Cups zone now when there are only ten matches left to play in the current season. As for the first leg game of the current stage of the Europa League, they were mostly trying to attack in that match. Moreover, they created committed much more attempts 22 against 5 created by their competitors 5. Yet, the results of the game didn’t actually reflect it.

The teams have already met three times in the current season. In the first round game of the current national elite division Schalke won 4:0 and in the second round game Borussia won 4:2. In the first leg game the teams drew, as you already know. Schalke are still very convenient competitors for Borussia, in fact. They won most of their home games played against Schalke. Anyway, Schalke scored at least once in all of their latest 5 matches played at the Borussia Park. We think that the upcoming game won’t be an exception.
