Borussia Dortmund vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
The hosts have been struggling to return to winning ways in their clashes in the top flight and went into the international break on the back of three consecutive draws. The last of which, was against Freiburg by a 2-2 scoreline on the road.
As of now, the home team are eighth in the table and are four points behind their counterparts Borussia Monchengladbach who are the helm.
Marco Rose’s men have failed to pick up a win just twice in their campaign so far and will be making the trip to Signal Iduna Park on the back of an impressive four-match winning streak in the Bundesliga. Their previous clash at home saw them rout the hapless Augsburg at home with a hefty 5-1 scorecard.
While on the road, they slotted three unanswered goals past Hoffenheim to come away with the win. However, it is certainly worth mentioning that the away side have been squaring up against fairly less competitive sides up till now.
None of their opponents finished inside the top five last time around as opposed to Dortmund who came in second. Furthermore, the away side have hardly been a threat in their previous visits to this stadium and have been at the losing end for the past five years.
Hence, although Monchengladbach are sporting an impressive winning form under their belt, that alone is not going to cut it against the hosts in this one. As such, Dortmund should be able to walk away with all three points in the bag.
Additionally, the home team have not been shy in racking up the goals tally and have hit double digits on the goal-scoring charts from just three games. Considering that the hosts have scored four goals or more in three of their last four head to head meetings here as well, count on a high scoring affair to unfold by all means this Friday.
