Borussia M’Gladbach vs FC Zurich (Europa League, 11.12.2014)

First place meets third as Borussia M’Gladbach will push for a win against a Zurich side that will want the qualification more. The hosts are currently two points in front of their opponents, but they also have Villarreal to worry about, as the Spanish team is placed second with only one point behind the Germans.

FC Zurich do not have new injuries prior to the Gladbach match, but they made the headlines after filing a criminal complaint against Sandro Weiser for the tackle that destroyed Yapi Yapo’s knee to the degree that he might never make a full recovery. Koch is under doubt and might get to start if the medical team gives their all clear. The visitors are placed second behind FC Basel, and their latest result is a loss to Thun where neither Buff, nor Chiumiento were able to capitalize on their goalscoring chances.
Borussia M’Gladbach were among the top three teams in Bundesliga, but three defeats in a row set them back, and they landed on the sixth place. Dahoud is out with an injury while Kruse, Marx and Kramer are under doubt. The good news comes from Martin Stranzl who returned yesterday to training, and it will be up to Favre to send him in or not. Gladbach needed the win against Hertha Berlin as a signal they can indeed shake off the terrible form they are in, and die Fohlen know that even a draw will put them through.

If Zurich want to secure qualification, they will have to win in Gladbach, however their away form in the competition is speaking against them, in the last three matches they have two defeats, while Borussia M’Gladbach has two draws and a win in the same number of matches. The first leg ended with a 1-1 draw, but for tomorrow the hosts are the obvious favorites with 1.48 odds for a win. Zurich has 6.50 odds to win and another draw has 4.33 odds.

Borussia M’Gladbach for both halves has 2.15 odds, Zurich 12.00 and both teams to score with 1.70 odds. The hosts have only lost once at home this season, which is why the coupled market of Gladbach to win and both to score with 2.85 odds looks valuable enough. We are going to bet 7 units on Borussia M’Gladbach to score over 1.5 goals with 2.65 odds from Titan Bet.
