Another Europa League game, but this one is going to be totally different. Result from the first match is 1-1 so everything is open. Schalke know they will need to score at least once, perhaps twice and home team as always confident at home and in good form will try to win and make everything sure. Two teams are qualitywise very evenly balanced.
Moenchengladbach were having a poor season, but are a lot stronger after the winter break. Currently 9th in Bundesliga they are traditionally strong at home. Their average of goals this season is 2,7 per game.
On the other side, Schalke are also having a very solid spring season and are currently 2 places below Moenchengladbach. They too are strong at home, but this is a specific match and they can not afford to lose it. Average of goals at 2,5 per game, a bit less away from home. Three overs in the last four games played, I would mention another interesting fact. These two played last month and Moenchengladbach won 4-2.
My call is 3-2 this time!
