Borussia M’gladbach – AC Fiorentina – teams coming from the best European leagues and therefore this game attractive. They also have a lot of similarities, because this season do not play very well in the championship, where they are closer to the middle of the table than the top and the question is whether it will turn out to win the European scene. Something worse standing Borussia, which is only in the last two rounds managed to improve their ranking, as they are typed two victories and one in the Cup. Fiorentina has a slightly better scoring balance, but were knocked out in the quarter finals and the championship play changing lately.

They won more and Freiburg at home with 3: 0, and in the last round of Werder Bremen with 1: 0th This means you have three related match without conceding a goal, but tiring rhythm of playing matches on three fronts, and it could be felt. Problems with the violation has one of the best ofanzivaca Raffael and missed the previous matches, but it probably will not even be in this game. In Bremen he could not play second striker Stindl for cardboard, but they managed over Hazard give one goal is enough to win. Now Stindl safely returned to composition, but because of injuries is still not available to newcomers stopper Kolodziejczak.
