Borussia Monchengladbach hosts Real Madrid in round 2 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, October 27th at Borussia-Park (Mönchengladbach)
The Foals got in a very difficult group. They must fight for at least 2nd place against the champion of Spain, vice-champion of Italy and the best team in Ukraine that reached the Europa League semifinals in the last season. Well, the first step was successful – a 2-2 draw at Giuseppe Meazza. On the other hand, there was a feeling that Marco Rose's men could achieve more. They adequately responded to the goal of Lukaku, first leveling the score (Bensebini from the penalty spot) and then even outscoring. It was already the 84th minute, and it seemed that a sensational victory was in the hands of the Germans. However, Romelu managed to save the reputation of Antonio Conte and his team - at least they did not lose.

Real Madrid was the undisputed favorite of the group. And the Whites clearly planned to win in the first round without enduring great losses. Zinedine Zidane did not field Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema in the match against weakened Shakhtar. And he paid for the underestimation - his players managed to concede three times before the break. Yes, there was an attempt to win back in the second half, but having scored twice by the 59th minute, the Royal club did not issue a comeback. The Whites scored at the end, but Valverde's goal was due to Vinicius’s active offside position. Now the Spanish champion should be extremely motivated.
Head-to-head matches were very difficult for Real Madrid. In 1976, Borussia Monchengladbach and Real Madrid exchanged draws in the European Champions Cup. In 1985, they exchanged epic home wins (5-1 in Madrid, and 4-0 in Germany). Borussia is a strong team, but Real Madrid will be very motivated since it cannot lose points. We think that the visitors will manage to earn three points.
Prediction for the match: Real Madrid to win
