To an extent, Borussia Monchengladbach and Barcelona have made the same starts to the season, with a single draw and defeat blemishing otherwise perfect league records.

However, there are two key differences. One is that, while the German side haven't faced a top-six companion, the Spanish champions have met two top-five foes. The other is that Barcelona kicked off their Champions League challenge by thrashing Celtic 7-0, whereas the hosts flopped 4-0 at Man City.

Luis Enrique's men have won seven away games in a row, scoring 26 times and conceding just once in the process, so, even with Monchengladbach on an 11-match home winning streak, it would take a brave punter to oppose a Barcelona team beaten a mere three times in their last 40 group ties.


Barcelona Win and Both Teams to Score

Borussia Monchengladbach have both scored and conceded in each of their five prior Champions League encounters in front of their fans, against opponents as varied as Juventus, Sevilla and Young Boys, and four of their past five Bundesliga fixtures at Borussia-Park followed that formula.

Barcelona might boast impressive defensive figures on their travels at present, as detailed above, but they were breached in two of their three ventures overseas in last season's group stage.
