Borussia Monchengladbach coach Andre Schubert has insisted that his side will set out to take maximum points from tomorrow evening’s Champions League match against Juventus.
The Foals enter the encounter bottom of Group D after two defeats and a draw from their first three games, yet Schubert, who has overseen six straight victories in the Bundesliga, stressed that his charges would look to make home advantage count in their bid to translate recent domestic successes into results on the European stage.
The 44-year-old began: “I don’t look at the table. We’re playing in front of our fans at home and we want to win. We’re fully focused on the game at hand and we’ll look at the group situation afterwards.
“Tomorrow sees two good sides play one another and we’ll look to make life difficult for Juventus, because it’s our aim to take maximum points.
“Juventus is a great club with outstanding individual talents so we need to adapt to their tactical flexibility, while we’ll also need to beat them man-for-man.”
