Borussia Monchengladbach defeated Bundesliga side Ingolstadt 2-0 in a precursor to their upcoming UEFA Champions League match against Barcelona during the midweek. German international Lars Stindl scored inside 42 minutes for Borussia Monchengladbach off a low shot after Marvin Matip‘s failed clearance fell to Stindl’s feet. Monchengladbach added a second goal at the 76th minute when Oscar Wendt was on the opposite end of Mahmoud Dahoud’s fantastic cross that ended up beating Orjan Nyland.

Borussia Monchengladbach could have gained all three points in a more convincing manner but were denied by the woodwork. The victory over Ingolstadt helped Gladbach jump into fourth place in the Bundesliga having leapfrogged over Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha Berlin. Borussia Mochengladbach are doing everything in their power to keep tabs on the six European qualifying spots in the German Bundesliga.

Gladbach will be entertaining Barcelona on Wednesday evening and will be using their match against Ingolstadt as a springboard into that tough match in the UEFA Champions League. The following match for Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga is against lowly Schalke 04.

Schalke has been enduring an awful start to the Bundesliga season and has yet to gain a single point in the Bundesliga. Schalke slumped to a 2-1 away defeat to Hoffenheim on Sunday evening in Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena in Sinsheim Germany. Borussia Monchengladbach will be looking to keep pace with the rest of the pack in pursuit to maintain their position in any European competition.

Barcelona will be no cake walk for Borussia as they will look to bounce back from their 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City. Perhaps playing at home could put the odds in their favor a bit since they are currently riding an 11-game home win streak dating back to last season. Borussia has won all three home games in the Bundesliga so far this season. Also Lionel Messi will not play due to injury which gives the German club one less attacker to worry about.
