Well, having defeated Schalke quite handily this past weekend, another matchup could spell trouble. The good news is that Gladbach is catching them at the best time. Schalke has struggled as of late, whereas Mönchengladbach has played really well recently.

I'll predict a win for Gladbach by the score of 3-1.

Schalke pre-match facts

Schalke pre-match facts

Everything you need to know ahead of the Europa League round of 16 first leg tie against Schalke 04.

Crowd: The game in the Veltins Arena is sold out, with 54,740 tickets sold. Borussia will bring around 5,500 away fans.

Head2Head with Schalke: The teams are meeting in a UEFA competition for the first time. There have been 100 matches between the two sides in the Bundesliga and the DFB Cup. Gladbach have 40 wins, Schalke have 32 and there have been 28 draws.

Statistics: Borussia have already played in international competitions against clubs from Germany or the former GDR. Those 14 games have seen nine wins, two draws and three defeats. Gladbach have always advanced in the knockout stages when facing German opposition but lost the 1980 Uefa Cup final to Eintracht Frankfurt. This will be Schalke’s second European game against fellow German sides. In the 1977/78 UEFA Cup but lost 4-2 and 3-1 against FC Magdeburg and they are yet to lose at home in this season’s Europa League with three wins and a draw. In the previous six away games in Europe, Borussia have been on a rollercoaster ride, with matches lost with four goals conceded as well as victories by two goals or more. Schalke last reached the Europe League quarter-final in 2012, where they lost to Bilbao, and won the competition in 1997. This is the first time in the last 16 of the Europa League. The last time they reached the quarter-finals in Europe was 1995/96, when they were in the Cup Winners Cup.

Route to the last 16: Borussia finished third in their Champions League group to qualify for the knockout phases of the Europa League, when they defeated Fiorentina in the round of 32 (4-3 on aggregate 0-1/4-2). Schalke came through the group stages of the Europa League, with five wins from six games against Krasnodar, Nice and Salzburg. They defeated PAOK Thessaloniki 4-1 on aggregate in the last round.

I would imagine we come up closely to this -

Sommer
Jantschke --- Christensen --- Vertergaard --- Wendt
Herrmann --- Kramer --- Dahoud --- Johnson
Stindl --- Raffael

Will be watching this in the U.K.  I'm hoping for a Schalke win but as said previously, the form ain't good just now. The one shred of hope does come from form in the Europa league seemed a bit better than the league. 

Fingers crossed 🤞🏻🤞🏻

What absolute shit - Rafael is taking on 2 defenders, they basically tackle him, but the ref doesn't call it. Schalke takes the ball and scores.....Absolutely Poor job on the ref there.

1-1.

Play the whistle yes, but blow the damn whistle when their is an obvious foul. The ref gave out two soft yellows (one for each team) early on, and has been awful since. Missing another call on Fabian when the defender clearly didn't play the ball, but took out Johnson.

I'll take a 1-1 with the away goal, but this ref is seriously blowing harder than a porn star.

Tbf I don't think the ref will look back on this game with any fondness. 

 

Schalke deserving a goal goal with this pressure just now 🤞🏻🤞🏻

Agreed. He's missed calls for both teams.

Schalke almost score in the 76th minute...

First Half - We controlled the majority of play. Still think Schalke were lucky to get their goal since IMO it was an obvious foul that lead to the take away and following goal.

Second Half - Schalke brought the pressure and were clearly the more attacking team. We are lucky to get out of this 1-1, and now have a slight advantage heading into the second tie.

Mixed feelings. What a difference when choupo-moting came on. 
Tough game next week 🤞🏻🤞🏻
Deserved to win based on the final 20 minutes. 

Advantage to BM 😥

Quite happy about us getting out a point in a difficult tie, we just need now not to fuck it up. At this point this is the most important competition for us.

Willikommen!

I absolutely agree. We have to proceed at home.
