Borussia Monchengladbach 'don't have much to lose' against Juventus
Borussia Monchengladbach defender Alvaro Dominguez sees no reason why his side cannot carry their Bundesliga form over into the Champions League when they travel to Juventus this week.
The Foals have turned things around domestically after losing their first five matches, with four straight wins under caretaker coach Andre Schubert.

They have yet to get their European campaign up and running, though, having lost their opening two group games against Sevilla and Manchester City.
They now face last season's beaten finalists twice -- first in Turin on Wednesday and then back in Monchengladbach -- and Dominguez is hoping they can start a similar recovery to the one they have launched in the league.
"We know that we're not exactly favourites, but we don't have much to lose either," he said on Sport1.de.
"We want to win there. Of course we've not got any points yet, but that should be motivation for us."
The 26-year-old praised Schubert for his part in transforming the Foals over the past month, saying he "has breathed fresh life, stability and a lot of motivation into us.
"He's got some good ideas and the players have faith in these ideas," he added, suggesting that Schubert should be given the job on a full-time basis.
"He's doing a great job, so why should we change when things are running so well?"
