Borussia Monchengladbach had very bad start of this campaign, but they improved their form and now coming to this match of 4th round in Champions league group stage after three consecutive victories, two in Bundesliga and one in Cup. Gladbach will now host Juventus and after goalless draw against them two weeks ago on the road they are hoping that maybe can achieve positive outcome in front of their fans and stay in battle for the knockout stage. They are at last position in group D with only one point from previous three rounds, and this will for sure be very hard match for them. In German Bundesliga Gladbach currently occupies solid 5th position, they got back on the track after very bad series of results on start of this season, they suffered five defeats in first five rounds, but team now seems much better and very confident. Defenders Martin Stranzl and Nico Shulz, attacking midfielder Andre Hahn and forward Patrick Herrmann will stay out of action for this match, while appearances of defender Tony Jantschke and midfielder Marvin Schulz are in doubt due to a minor injuries.
Juventus on the other side showed decent performances in Champions league in this season, after three rounds they are at first position at the table with seven points, while in Italia Serie A they had a worst start in past few season, currently are at 10th position with 15 points from 11 rounds. They are now coming to this match after victory in previous round of Serie A against Torino at home 2:1, but they are struggling to find consistency in their game, before that victory they suffered defeat in previous round against Sassuolo. As they are defending a title in Italy they must improve their performances, while in Champions league they are on good path to reach knockout stage. Juventus had great previous season, they won title in Italy fourth time in a row and reached Champions league final where they were defeated by Barcelona, and they must improve their shape, especially in domestic league, they will for sure go for a victory and try to made one step closer to a knockout stage. Defensive midfielder Sami Khedira, defender Kwadwo Asamoah and forward Roberto Pereyra won't be able to help their team in this match due to injuries while Stephan Lichensteiner will probably miss this match since he had a heart surgery.
Gladbach improved their form and they now looks much better than on start of this season, but they have really small odds to reach knockout stage of Champions league after bad results in first three rounds, while Juventus is at first position in group, they are favorites in this match and despite their variable form in this season they are closer to a victory in this match.
