Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director insists Celtic’s Champions League opponents are not in crisis


Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has denied claims the Foals are in crisis ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League visit of Celtic.

Monchengladbach have slipped to 11th in the Bundesliga having failed to score in any of their previous four league matches.

Last Friday’s disappointing draw at home to Eintracht Frankfurt has extended their goal drought to 374 minutes and head coach Andre Schubert has admitted his side are feeling the strain amid a demanding run of four games in 11 days.

Victory against Brendan Rodgers’ side will all but guarantee at least a third place finish in Group C and Eberl insists there is a lot to be positive about.

He said: “I definitely do not see a crisis. It’s difficult that we have not scored a goal but we’ve created chances.

“We’re in a difficult phase but we have to cope with it and work hard to get out of this situation. We have proved in the past we can do it.

“That is why we have to clear our heads, take the point from Frankfurt and concentrate on the task against Celtic.

“We have done well in the Champions League and we want to use that positive mood to try and get back to winning again.”

“If we beat Celtic we are virtually assured of third and we will remain in Europe.”
