Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday, 22nd April 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Borussia-Park (Monchengladbach).
The ultimate match of Saturday will take place at Borussia-Park, where Gladbach will face Dortmund. The hosts were defeated in the previous round by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim after allowing five while scoring only three.
Tomas Tuchel’s side faced AC Monaco on Wednesday in the second leg of Champions League quarter-final tie. Bundesliga remained without a participant in the elite club competition as Dortmund were beaten with 3-1.
Dieter Hecking’s men are in the ninth position with 39 points earned. Aside from the top six Bundesliga route, Gladbach can potentially reach UEFA Europa League through DFB Pokal, since they will face Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-final at the end of April.
The hosts are very inconsistent this season, especially at Borussia-Park. They won seven games in Monchengladbach while drawing three and losing four. Their previous two home games have seen only a single goal per match.
The guests could be in a slump after AC Monaco put their Champions League run to an end. However, they need to focus on the domestic league now as they are only fourth with 53 points earned, only one point less than Julian Nagelsmann’s TSG Hoffenheim.
Dortmund are without a win on the road in the last four Bundesliga outings. Their away record this season reads W4 D5 L6 with 27 goals scored and 25 allowed.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
Taking the previous meetings into account, we could see another high-scoring match on Saturday. The guests are certainly better, but due to exhaustion and the lack of motivation Gladbach could easily take the full prize.
