Borussia vs Inter Preview

Antonio ConteAntonio Conte's Inter Milan head to Germany where they play Borussia Monchengladbach in a cluster B fixture that will decide the  Italian club's fate in the competition. The two sides had played out a 2-2 draw in their first leg fixture in Milan in October.

Gladbach leading the cluster with 8 points needs just a draw from their remaining two games to take them to the Round of 16.

Marco Rose's side have performed far above expectations in only their third ever Champions' League group stage campaign. Having conceded last-minute equalizers to Inter and Real Madrid, Gladbach have made up for the drawn games with two convicting wins over Shakhtar Donetsk to move to the top of cluster B.

On the domestic front the Colts have come out an emphatic 4-1 win over Schalke04 in a Bundesliga fixture last Saturday.

On the other hand, Inter conceded to Real Madrid their first ever defeat in Milan when they went down 0-2 to the La Liga giants last week. Conte's men have shown good form in the domestic Serie A, though, with consecutive wins over Torino and Sassuolo of 4-2 and 0-3 respectively.
