Borussia vs Real Madrid, UEFA Champions League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Real Madrid travels to Germany their second Champions League 2020-21 clash in group fixtures with Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday night.

Match Timings: Oct 28, 1:30 AM

Team Preview 

Real Madrid will face Monchengladbach to find the first victory of their UEFA Champions League 2020-21 campaign. Los Blancos suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in their opening game. They are heading into this game with a 3-1 win over Barcelona in the first El Clasico clash of the La Liga 2020-21, thanks to the goals from Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric. The reigning champions are currently at the top of the table, with 13 points from their first six matches of the campaign. Zinedine Zidane's side would focus on their Champions League ties and the defeat against Ukrainian side made them hurt in the table. They would aim to recover the loss to prepare themselves for the second leg games. The Spanis Champions would keen to draw first win after three consecutive defeats in European matches as they were also defeated twice in their last two matches against City in 2019-20 campaign. The 13-times champions are one of the top contenders of Champions League and making into the knock out is a cakewalk for them but this time, the task might be difficult. 

Gladbach are entering into the fixture with a 2-2 draw with Inter Milan. Marco Rose's side off to a good start as they had 2-1 lead before Lukaku netted an equaliser in the 90th minute. Lukaku’s brace avoided a defeat to Inter Milan and the German outfit walked away with one point. They recently defeated Mainz 05 3-2 in their Bundesliga fixture on Saturday, courtesy of Ginter’s 83rd-minute strike. With eight points, they moved to 5th in the table. The German Outfit has a fine opportunity to take points from this game. They had never qualified for the knock out round of Champions League and in their last two appearances in the competition, their campaign ended in the group stage. The German Club appeared in Europa League last season and finished third in their group. The Colts will face their next European game with Shakhtar, the strong favourties to top this group.
