Mönchengladbach host fellow title challengers Dortmund as both teams look to end Bayern Munich’s stranglehold on the Bundesliga.

Under the radar

Mönchengladbach sit fourth in the table, and they have to win here to avoid falling away from the chasing pack and Bayern Munich. Their success is, without a doubt, a team effort with everyone contributing and no single player dominating the scoring charts. However, this is something that could come back to haunt them in regards to their title challenge. All three of the other title challenger boast a striker in excellent form this season and “die Fohlen” have scored far fewer goals than the teams above them. You can get odds of 101.00 for them to win the Bundesliga. Very generous considering they’re only five points behind Bayern Munich with a game in hand.

Back with a bang

The signing of Erling-Braut Haaland has revitalised Dortmund who were looking at a Champions League place at best before he came. Dortmund lacked a proper frontman, and now they have one in what is almost certainly the signing of the year. He is at odds of 1.67 to score in this match.

Match preview

If the H2H is anything to go by, then things are looking very bleak indeed if you are a Mönchengladbach fan. Dortmund have won this fixture ten times in a row. Mönchengladbach last defeated Dortmund five years ago in 2015 with a 3-1 victory. The home side’s Brazillian striker Raffael scored in that match, and he is at 3.25 to score again. This rotten run will definitely be on the minds of the players as a lot of them have been at the club since the streak began. Streaks like this end at some point and with Marco Rose’s team playing their best football in years, they’ll feel a lot more confident in themselves to finally defeat Dortmund.  

Dortmund are up against a team with a stronger defence and attack in comparison to a lot of their recent Bundesliga opponents. The team that wins this match will be seen as very serious and genuine contenders for the Bundesliga.

Injury news

Mönchengladbach: Marcus Thuram.

Dortmund: Thomas Delaney and Marco Reus
