Betting Tip: Back Fiorentina to squeeze past Monchengladbach
Fiorentina host Borussia Monchengladbach on Thursday night and we've got betting tips and predictions.
Bet365 make Fiorentina 29/20 with Borussia Monchengladbach priced at 21/10
Fiorentina surprisingly took a one-goal advantage into this leg following their excellent victory in Germany seven days ago. Paolo Sousa's side haven't been consistent on the road this season and have recently laboured in Serie A but they were excellent value for their success and have the upper hand here.
They are very strong at Stadio Artemio Franchi and Borussia Monchengladbach side are going to have to pull something special out of the bag in order to keep their Europa League campaign alive.
Federico Bernadeschi scored the winner for Fiorentina and he was suspended at the weekend but returns for this tie.
The hosts have won 5 of the last 6 games in this competition and will be confident of progressing.
Fiorentina don't lose often in front of their own fans with just a solitary 3-2 loss to PAOK in all competitions.
They don't have a hugely positive record against German clubs in Europe with just three wins from eleven but they will fancy their chances of improving on that.
They were edged out by AC Milan at the weekend which has hugely hindered their chances of securing European qualification for next season and they will want to stay in this year's competition for as long as possible.
Dieter Hecking has improved Borussia Monchengladbach since arriving although it's been a forgettable seven days. After losing at home to the Viola, they were defeated by RB Leipzig on their own patch just days later.
The former Wolfsburg coach hasn't been there long and his side have been in decent form. This is a real test of his credentials. Can he turn things around?
Borussia Monchengladbach didn't have good form on the road earlier in the season but are now unbeaten in four away matches which offers hope here.
They've won twice in Italy in their last 15 attempts
Head to Head
The 1-0 Fiorentina win was the first time these clubs have met
Federico Chiesa returns from suspension and could go straight into the XI. Carlos Sanchez may not be risked as he is one booking away from a suspension.
Raffael is still a huge loss for the visitors. He continues his recovery from injury. Ibrahima Toure and Kolo are other absentees.
