Borussia Dortmund vs Monchengladbach
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park.
Der BVB did give the Bavarians a run for their money the last season. If not for some late-season bad performances, Lucien Favre’s men just might have pulled off a major upset.
Still, they are once again back to make a pass at the German title. They do have the confidence of winning it twice in a row at the start of the decade, and though they have failed to lift the trophy since, with the return of talisman Marco Reus from injury, they believe they are ready.
They are pitted against one of the toughest teams for their opener though. The Foals had finished fourth in the table in 2019-20, just four points below runners-up – Der BVB.
However, Favre’s men have a totally dominating h2h record against this opponent over the years, and they are at their favorite venue – the Signal Iduna Park.
Moreover, with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland etc, they feel as if they are one of the most promising teams in the world.
Likely, expect a winning performance from Borussia Dortmund this weekend.
Dortmund vs Monchengladbach Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Black and Yellows are on an eleven-match winning run against this opponent.
- In fact, they have won every single encounter in the past five years.
- They have scored two or more goals in nine of the former eleven clashes.
- At this venue, the hosts have won 17 of the preceding 20 meetings.
Dortmund vs Monchengladbach Prediction
Der BVB have some of the best young talents in the whole of Europe at the moment, and they are really determined to go after the throne of Bayern this season.
They are opening against a tough opposition, but it’s even more reason to play for a win. Should Favre’s men record a good win over a quality opponent, their confidence would rocket sky-high, and they really could build some serious momentum.
In addition, they are on an 11-match winning run against this rival, and had recorded two separate seven-game winning streaks at home in the past 15 h2h match-ups.
Going on, the guests have won just once at this ground since 1998, and they had failed to score in five of their preceding ten visits to this stadium.
Considering all these stats, expect a good display by Borussia Dortmund this weekend. And with their in-form frontline, anticipate a minimum of two goals as well.
