Marseille coach Elie Baup is wary of Borussia Moenchengladbach ahead of their Europa League meeting on Thursday.

Ahead of a crucial Ligue 1 fixture against Lyon on Sunday, Baup’s men travel to Germany to face a struggling Moenchengladbach at Stadion im Borussia-Park.

After losing key playmaker Marco Reus and defender Dante in the off-season, the Germans have struggled in the early stages of the Bundesliga and sit 13th on the table.

And they have gained just one point from their two Europa League fixtures so far, making a victory vital against the French side.

For that reason, Baup is cautious about Moenchengladbach’s capabilities.

“First of all, Gladbach is a historic club, with a strong history in football,” Baup said.

“Its history means that they’re always talked about in Europe, and they’ve played in European cups for a long time. They had an astonishing season last year.

“This season, I think they’ve had a difficult start to this championship. You have to acknowledge that three good players have left the squad and the team is a bit younger.

“But they will get their quality and their performances back. They’re a team that can turn things around at any time. I consider them to be a strong side.”
