      Istanbul Basaksehir vs Borussia Monchengladbach Predictions

      These two sides both suffered 4-0 hammerings on the opening night in this group, but can either of them bounce back here with a win? The pair are now the outsiders in the pool, making this a crucial encounter for both teams. However, with both sides showing problems in Europe of late, could these two struggling sides cancel each other out and fall further behind in the process?

      These two met over the summer, with a 5-1 victory for Gladbach leaving Basaksehir a little shaky going into this one. However, they will expect a closer clash to that encounter, which came as the Turkish side were focusing on their Champions League qualifying campaign. The hosts ended up being eliminated from Europe’s top competition, following their 3-0 aggregate loss to Olympiakos. Have they found their level in the Europa League?

      The visitors have Champions League ambitions of their own, having climbed into the top five in the Bundesliga. They are level on points with second-placed Leipzig, only a point shy of Bayern Munich out in front. That strong start from Gladbach makes us question their Europa League opener, which saw them hammered 4-0 at home to Wolfsberger.

      The visitors have bounced back with two victories, but can they take that form into Europe? They hed here with one win in seven Europa League outings, so we struggle to see the away side coming away from Istanbul with three points. On the other hand, Borussia Mönchengladbach have only lost one of their last six away games in the Europa League (W2 D3), with that defeat coming in February 2015 v Sevilla; the team who went on to win the competition in 2014-15.

      The home side have a terrible European record, which has seen them win only two of their last 15 Europa League matches. At home, a single win over Sporting Braga in 2017 remains their only success here in this competition. Basaksehir have drawn three of their last four at home. When you combine that with mixed form from the visitors, we’re backing a draw as our tip here.
