Can we really write a betting preview where we say something new, after Barcelona won 7-0 on Day 1, and their opponents lost 0-4?
The game seems to have a very clear outcome, and there are only 2 possibilities: either we see a complete surprise that will lead to lots of people losing lots of money, or we will be accused of over-analyzing a perfectly easy game.

M’gladbach 6.50 or 11/2 Draw 4.50 or 7/2 Barcelona 1.53 or 8/15
Barcelona doesn’t require any introduction. They only lost one game this season, 1-2 against newly-promoted Alaves, where they missed 8 people from their first team and were also highly unlucky. Apart from that one mistake, they won all their games in a very clear manner, and their magic MSN trio is looking in fine form.
The only question seems to be how many goals can they score each game. To be honest, there are very few teams on the continent which are able to put up a fight against Barcelona, and Borussia Moenchengladbach is not one of them.
The German team is very inconsistent this season, alternating great wins (4-1 against Bremen) with surprising losses (1-3 against Freiburg).
Although they clearly have quality, the squad isn’t mature or experienced enough to compete against Barcelona or Manchester City for the first two spots in the group.
They lost 0-4 on opening day against the British side, and should consider themselves lucky if they manage to lose at a tighter scoreline at home against Barcelona.
Borussia M’gladbach vs Barcelona Betting Tips
A solo away win has some pretty good odds in our perspective. If you go for a handicap win (Barcelona -1), you might even go over the 2,00 threshold with the odds, doubling your money.
We believe this is a relative no-brainer, as well as Messi to score. The home team will do everything in their power to prevent the defeat, meaning they will concede more yellow cards, but Barcelona will be victorious in the end.
