The fourth-place Mönchengladbach host the third-place Dortmund with only two points separating the sides. It’s the third meeting of the season between the two after Dortmund won the reverse fixture in the league and also a cup tie at home
This season’s results mean that Dortmund have now won 10 straight head to head meetings. It’s been five years since Mönchengladbach’s last win in the matchup, but they should feel confident ahead of Saturday’s clash after establishing themselves as one of the league’s best home teams. Leipzig is the only visiting side to win at the BORUSSIA-PARK this season, and Mönchengladbach have won eight of their last nine league games in front of their fans.
Dortmund have flipped between wins and losses in their recent away games, and their overall road record stands at five wins, three draws, and four losses. However, manager Lucien Favre should be satisfied with his team’s overall form, as Dortmund have won six of their last seven Bundesliga games.
Everything looks set for a big spectacle, which should feature plenty of goals. Dortmund are averaging 2.75 goals per game this season, while Mönchengladbach have found their scoring boots as well lately, scoring 13 goals in their last five games.
