Borussia Dortmund vs Borussia Monchengladbach

Signal Iduna Park forms the backdrop for a mouth-watering Bundesliga showdown between Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Despite amassing two more points than at this stage of last season (21) when they challenged for the title until the final round, back-to-back defeats to Bayern Munich and Stuttgart have demoted Borussia Dortmund to fifth in the Bundesliga standings. Ten points adrift of pacesetters Bayer Leverkusen at the start of this round, ‘Die Borussen’ cannot afford another slip-up as they look to regain a form that led them to 17 consecutive unbeaten league matches before the abovementioned losses. Before slumping to a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Bayern in ‘Der Klassiker’ at the start of November, Edin Terzic’s side had gone undefeated in home league action for over a year. Keen to return to winning ways, Dortmund can draw confidence from beating Gladbach in their last ten H2Hs at Signal Iduna Park.

On the other hand, Borussia Monchengladbach headed into the international break in high spirits after a 4-0 demolition of Wolfsburg on home soil extended their unbeaten streak in domestic action to four matches (W3, D1). Gerardo Seoane has instilled his offensive mentality, with ‘Die Fohlen’ netting 2+ goals in all four games at an average of three per match. However, Gladbach’s away performances have flattered to deceive as they’ve only managed one win across five Bundesliga travels this term (D3, L1) and have yet to keep a clean sheet on the road. High scoring has been a common theme in that sequence, with all five fixtures featuring over 3.5 goals and both teams on the scoresheet, highlighting the potential for a spectacular affair.
