Fiorentina v Borussia Monchengladbach Betting: Open game in prospect as the visitors push forward

With Hecking's men needing to go forward in search of goals, Al Hain-Cole expects La Viola to take full advantage in another high-scoring home game

Borussia Monchengladbach will be looking to overturn a 1-0 first leg deficit when they travel to the Stadio Artemio Franchi to take on Fiorentina in Thursday's Europa League last 32 clash.

A Federico Bernardeschi free-kick saw Dieter Hecking suffer his first defeat since taking over from Andre Schubert in December, although his side are available at 15/8 (2.88) with Betway to keep their European campaign alive by coming out on top in Italy.

However, La Viola have lost just one of their last 16 fixtures on home turf, and are 7/5 (2.40) favourites to secure their place in the last 16 with another victory here.

Just one of the home team’s seven games in this competition has resulted in a draw so far, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them playing out a stalemate in this one.

Having gone into the home-leg in confident spirits after a strong run of form, the 1-0 defeat will have come as something of an unpleasant shock for Die Fohlen.

However, considering the only win of their ultimately unsuccessful Champions League group stage was secured on the road, they will certainly back themselves to put in a strong performance in the away leg.


What’s more, the hosts’ 3-2 defeat by PAOK in the previous home game in this competition suggests that 1-0 deficit is far from unbreachable for a team that has found the net six times in their last three away games.

Nevertheless, Gladbach’s need to pour forward in search of goals is also sure to open up space for an attack that has struck 22 times in the last 10 fixtures in front of their own fans.

All things considered, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem generous on an open encounter reaping over 2.5 goals, in a bet that would have paid out in seven of Fiorentina’s last eight home fixtures.
