Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund
SAT 25 SEP 2021 – KO 17:30
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Saturday evening, Monchengladbach host Dortmund at Borussia Park, as both teams look for potentially vital points in the Bundesliga.
The Foals have made a poor start to their Bundesliga campaign, as Adi Hutter’s team have claimed just four points from their opening five matches in the German top-flight. A 1-0 defeat at Augsburg last time out means that the home team have now lost three of their previous four outings in the Bundesliga.
The majority of the Foals recent league matches have offered good value when it comes to goals, as 13 of their last 15 Bundesliga games have produced over 2.5 goals scored.
Monchengladbach have a decent recent record at Borussia Park in the Bundesliga, having won four of their last six games.
Marco Rose’s team have now won their last four matches in all competitions, including their previous three in the Bundesliga. Their recent results have Dortmund third place in the table, just a point behind leaders Bayern Munich.
Last time out BVB recorded a 4-2 win over Union Berlin, which saw another brace from star striker Erling Haaland. The Norwegian wunderkind has now scored seven times in five appearances in the Bundesliga.
Unsurprisingly with Haaland in their team, Dortmund have been prolific of late, as they have scored at least two goals in each of their recent four victories.
Dortmund have a stellar recent away record, as the visitors have won four of their last five Bundesliga games on their travels. BVB have also scored at least two goals in seven of their previous eight away games in the German top-flight.
Monchengladbach could be without Stefan Lainer, Mamadou Doucoure, Ramy Bensebaini and Marcus Thuram due to various injuries.
Dortmund have injury problems of their own, as Marcel Schmelzer, Julian Brandt, Soumaila Coulibaly, Nico Schulz, Steffen Tigges, Emre Can, Giovanni Reyna, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Mateu Morey could all miss out on this clash.
We predict that Dortmund will record a fifth straight win in all competitions, in what should be a highly entertaining game.
