Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Real Madrid Betting Preview – Champions League, October 27, 2020

| October 26, 2020 9:24 am PDT

Real Madrid will be aiming to bounce back from a shock Matchday 1 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk when they face Borussia Monchengladbach at Borussia-Park on Tuesday, October 27.

The German side claimed an impressive draw with Inter Milan last week, meaning the Bundesliga outfit sits one point ahead of Los Blancos in Champions League Group B.

Latest Betting Odds

Borussia Monchengladbach to Win 3.70
The Draw 4.10
Real Madrid to Win 1.85

It is no real surprise that Real Madrid (1.85) is the favorite with top online betting sites to win this one. However, the price for the away victory is pretty high here, so the bookies clearly think that Borussia Monchengladbach (3.70) is capable of causing an upset.

With Los Blancos losing to Shakhtar last week and home advantage on Gladbach’s side on Tuesday, I really like the look of the odds for the draw (4.10).

Match Preview

Despite featuring in three different competitions already this season, Borussia Monchengladbach has only suffered one defeat in 2020/21. Marco Rose’s men lost to Borussia Dortmund on the opening day of the Bundesliga campaign, but they head into Tuesday’s clash on a five-game unbeaten streak.

The Germans must’ve thought they’d done enough to beat Inter Milan last week. Goals from Ramy Bensebaini and Jonas Hofmann saw Gladbach come from behind to lead on 84 minutes, only for Romelu Lukaku to net his second of the game and snatch a draw for the Italians.

Still, I’m sure that Rose will be hugely satisfied with his team’s performance on Matchday 1.

Gladbach was made to fight for victory in their previous outing. Mainz was leading with less than 15 minutes remaining, but Hofmann netted for the third straight game to spark a comeback before Matthias Ginter completed the turnaround.

Real Madrid heads into this clash on the back of a 3-1 victory over Barcelona. Goals from Federico Valverde, Sergio Ramos, and Luka Modric saw Zinedine Zidane’s men claim the El Clasico bragging rights on Saturday, although their season has been far from convincing so far.

Yes, Los Blancos went unbeaten in their opening four La Liga games, but after suffering a humiliating defeat to newly-promoted Cadiz, Real Madrid endured an even more embarrassing loss to Shakhtar last week.

The Ukrainian side had no fewer than ten first-team players missing due to injury or illness, yet Zidane’s men found themselves 3-0 down at half-time. Second-half strikes from Luka Modric and Vinicius Junior made the scoreline look a little more respectable, but if Shakhtar was more clinical, the defeat could have been even heavier for the Spaniards

Zidane will be looking for a big response from his players on Tuesday, but I can see them struggling against in-from Gladbach.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Real Madrid Pick

  • The Draw

In my opinion, the price for the draw is too good to miss here. Despite beating Barcelona at the weekend, Real Madrid clearly still has plenty of issues. On the flip side, Gladbach has made a bright start to the season and will be confident of upsetting the odds on Tuesday.

The win may be out of Gladbach’s reach, but I’m confident that Rose’s men won’t make life easy for Los Blancos.
