Borussia M'gladbach

A German Team
Team Story

Gladbach made easy work of their Champions League play-off, defeating Swiss side Young Boys 9-2 on aggregate, after qualifying by finishing 4th in the Bundesliga. They lost Granit Xhaka to Arsenal, who would have been handy against Barcelona and Man City, but maintain their attacking trio of Brazilian forward Raffael, Lars Stindl and American Fabian Johnson. They’re a solid, dangerous side, but it would be a definite surprise for them to make it out of this incredibly tough group. That doesn’t mean Gladbach shouldn’t be ignored - they make for great viewing and won’t go out easily.
