In a Champions League group which contains Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Borussia Monchengladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk, just a spunky few would have placed a bet on Real Madrid and inter Milan being on course for a spots in the next round.
Inability to progress from the group stage would most likely flag the finish of Zinedine Zidane’s second stretch in Bernabeu, yet Real’s fate is as yet in their own hands in spite of their dubious situation in the group. However , as long as Real Madrid win on their own turf, they will skip through. Shakhtar Donetsk faces Inter simultaneously, however the aftereffect of that game may pale into irrelevance relying upon what occurs at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
Los Blancos arranged for this game in ideal design with a victory over Sevilla in La Liga, in spite of the fact that Zidane’s men needed to depend on a own goal from Bono in the Sevilla post to scratch a restricted triumph on Saturday. Monchengladbach are in fantasy land at the highest point of Group B, and the Bundesliga side have acquired their entitlement to be there, however the competition to make the last 16 will go directly last minute this week.
The 16 goals that Marco Rose’s men have scored up in the group stage must be coordinated by Barcelona and Bayern Munich, which is nothing unexpected given the remarkable type of Marcus Thuram and Alassane Plea the last of whom has five goals in the competition up until now. Monchengladbach are right now one point clear on the rankings with Shakhtar and Real Madrid hot following right after them, and a draw for Real Madrid would ensure a top two completion and a spot in the following round, however that is a lot actually quite difficult.
Rose’s men would have been sure about their odds of beating an unwell Freiburg side at the end of the week, yet Monchengladbach could just take a point from that draw in the Bundesliga, with Plea scoring a goal alongside Breel Embolo.Monchengladbach’s first game with Madrid ended in a draw back in October, with Thuram putting the German team 2-0 up before a late Madrid rebound saw Karim Benzema and Casemiro both locate the rear of the net in the match.
Monchengladbach might be enticed to decide in favor of alert for this one given that a draw is all that they require, yet with the attacking ability in the guests’ positions, they might be in an ideal situation going for goals in the midst of a few cautious concerns. This should be an altogether engaging game ,one which makes certain to be one of the greatest of Zidane’s administrative vocation and we believe that the 13-time European heroes will scratch a vital success to book their spot in the last 16. Hence, we predict Real Madrid to win in the upcoming match.
