Europa League / Istanbul Basaksehir vs Borussia M'gladbach – The two teams have in common that they started very weakly the Europa League. It is interesting that both teams lost by 4-0; Basaksehir to Roma and Borussia to Wolfsberger at home. Borussia does much better in the Bundesliga where they have three-game winning streak, while Basaksehir is not that good but it still didn’t lost last four matches. Borussia won friendly with Basaksehir 5-1 that was played this summer.
Utakmica Istanburl Basaksehir vs Borussia M'gladbach begins 03.10.2019 at 18:55 CET
Basaksehir played very poorly against Roma in the first round of the Europa League where the final 4-0 demonstrates clearly how bad it was. They also started rather poorly the new Turkish championship where they lost in first two rounds, which wasn’t expected from the vice-champions. They managed to stabilise now and are undefeated in four previous matches. The problem is that they won only twice but it is an encouraging sign that they played the best right in the last round when they defeated Rizespor by 5-0. Midfielder Aleksic had his day, and now the team will definitely undergo changes in the team in order to keep players fresh.
Probable lineups Istanbul Basaksehir: Mert – Caicara, Skrtel, Epureanu, Clichy – Tekdemir – Višća, Kahveci, Aleksic, Elia – Gulbrandsen
Borussia started the Europa League very weakly since they lost 4-0 to an outsider at home. Not much chance was given to the Austrian Wolfsberger in such a strong competition but Borussia allowed the Austrians to play cat-and-mouse with them. The team from M'gladbach simply didn’t have its day and now they have see how to play better. They significantly improved their performances in the Bundesliga and besides one defeat they have won three times in a row. Borussia won one after another Cologne away, Fortuna at home and in the last round and after a great match Hoffenheim away 3-0. Forwards Plea and Thuram dominated the pitch, and now Bensebaini and Benes could join the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Borussia M'gladbach: Sommer – Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini – Zakaria, Neuhaus, Benes – Embolo – Thuram, Plea
Betting Pick: Istanbul Basaksehir vs Borussia M'gladbach
This is a make-up exam for both team and they shouldn’t allow to lose again. They need victory but both cannot win. On the other hand both teams can at least score a goal in an open match that we expect to see in Istanbul.
