Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 18 May 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Borussia Park, Monchengladbach
Borussia Dortmund travel to Monchengladbach on the final day of the Bundesliga season with title hopes still alive as they hope for a slip-up from Bayern Munich (who host Eintracht Frankfurt on the day).
While they don’t really hold their fate in their own hands, we feel BVB will be very motivated to do their bit and with Marco Reus returning to the line-up, we feel they’ll be in good shape too. They’ve beaten Fortuna Dusseldorf in a five-goal thriller last week and ended a streak of two games without a win, now desperate to keep up their goalscoring records.
Monchengladbach have a lot to play for after making the top 4 cut as well, where we saw them beat Nurnberg in a convincing setup on Saturday and goals from Drmic, Hazard, and Zakaria. They’ve seen two losses and a draw beforehand too and this could be more worrying, as Dieter Hecking hopes his men put in behind them and can now impress despite struggles with injuries.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
Dortmund have beaten the rivals in all of the last seven head-to-head clashes.
We’ve gotten used to thriller games along the way, with goals on both ends in five of the last six occasions.
Monchengladbach last beat BVB in April 2015, when Wendt, Raffael, and Nordtveit all found the net.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
We will now back Dortmund to build on the convincing head-to-head records against the rivals and connect their eighth win over Monchengladbach in a row, which comes at a good-looking 2.15 despite the home side having everything to play for too.
We do feel we should see a first-half opener and resulting excitement with goals on the day, as we now also go for a high-scoring game with Over 3.5 goals FT at 1.80. We’ve seen both sides enjoying such clashes lately and we hope to see more of the same regardless of the high stakes involved at Borussia Park.
