Borussia Dortmund vs Monchengladbach
2017/18 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 23rd September 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund.
The ultimate match of Saturday is going to be the confrontation between the two clubs with the same name – Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach.
BVB are sitting atop the Bundesliga following the impressive five games. They have now collected 13 points and they are proudly the best defense in the top five European leagues with zero goals allowed.
They will be aiming to extend the streak against Gladbach but the match will be quite open so it won’t be easy. Also, Dortmund will play in the upcoming week in UEFA Champions League, so Bosz might be forced to rotate.
Gladbach are sitting in the seventh position with 8 points accumulated. They hosted VfB Stuttgart during the mid-week games and triumphed with the result of 2-0.
BMG are aiming to get back into the top six in the current season, but in order to achieve their goal they will need a lot of consistency, and Dortmund visit is not a good starting point.
Borussia Dortmund vs Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
Dortmund have won the last four outings against Gladbach. In the aforementioned four matches, there have been more than 3.5 goals scored in each outing.
BMG have managed to grab a victory in Dortmund only once – back in 2014, when they stunned BVB with 1-2.
Borussia Dortmund vs Monchengladbach: Prediction
The forthcoming duel is going to be thrilling contest with plenty of goals, but can Gladbach break Dortmund defense for the first time this season? If they allow control to BVB early on, it’s quite unlikely. They could defend, but Gladbach always prefer playing on a goal more and they can’t count on the clean sheet in Dortmund. Therefore, the hosts will probably score an early goal with BMG chasing the lead.
