Borussia Mönchengladbach look to bank their first points in UEFA Champions League Group C away to Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic FC on Wednesday (kick-off 20:45CEST/18:45GMT).
The Foals lost both their previous outings, against Manchester City FC and FC Barcelona, but won plaudits across Europe for their fearless attacking displays in both encounters. A repeat performance will be needed in Glasgow as Gladbach look to finally reward themselves for such enterprising outings.
That will be no easy task, however, as Celtic recorded an impressive 3-3 draw at home to Man City on Matchday 2 and are unbeaten in 21 games in front of their own fans.
Still, coach Andre Schubert's men can take heart from their dominant showing at home to Hamburger SV at the weekend. It may have finished 0-0, but Gladbach were on top throughout, enjoying 70 per cent possession and winning 53 per cent of all duels. Indeed, the only thing missing was a goal - they squandered two penalties to seal what would have been a well-deserved win.
"It was frustrating but I'd be more worried if we weren't creating any chances at all," said Schubert at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday. "But that's not the case. I'm certain we'll be better in front of goal next time."

They will have to do so without two key attackers, however, as both Raffael and Thorgan Hazard, who have five Bundesliga goals between them so far this term, are unavailable having only just returned to training this week. Centre-back Andreas Christensen is also missing due to injury.
Nevertheless, Schubert is confident his charges will be able to cope: "We'll still be able to put out a strong team, and they'll give everything to make sure we get a good result."
