Borussia Mönchengladbach must avoid defeat at home to Sevilla FC on Wednesday (kick-off 20:45CET/19:45GMT) to keep their hopes of finishing third in UEFA Champions League Group D alive.

A win would, however, put the Foals in pole position to secure the group’s consolation prize of a place in the UEFA Europa League Round of 32, although Andre Schubert's side may still have to beat Manchester City FC in their final group fixture at the Etihad Stadium on 8 December to seal the deal.
