Another installment in the Battle of the Borussias gets underway this week, as Dortmund look ready to secure the bragging rights for the second straight time this season.
Dortmund vs Monchengladbach Head to head (h2h)
- Their last clash ended in a 1-0 win for Dortmund.
- Both teams have found the back of the net together in five of their previous eight games.
- Dortmund have emerged victoriously in all of their past five meetings.
- Three of their previous five encounters have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
- None of their last ten fixtures have finished as a draw.
Dortmund vs Monchengladbach Prediction
Lucien Favre’s side are without a win in their previous two games in all competitions, the last of which saw them play out a less than exciting stalemate with Schalke on the road. Nevertheless, the hosts have been at the losing end just once in their past nine matchups and will be welcoming Monchengladbach this week on the back of a six-game unbeaten run at home.
The visitors, on the other hand, have not admitted defeat in their last two games. Be that as it may, their most recent loss came against this very same opponent at this very same venue, by a 1-0 scorecard.
It is also worth mentioning that Monchengladbach have not been at their strongest on the road. At the moment, the guests are without a win in their last three outings, that too across various competitions.
Furthermore, the visitors have not been faring well in their previous visits to Signal Iduna Park. Out of their last seven trips here, Monchengladbach have come out on top just once. With h2h history also strongly favoring Borussia Dortmund, the visitors are the outright underdogs to bag the ticket to the next round.
Additionally, Marco Rose’s men have found the back of the net at least once in four of their previous five outings. The guests have also bagged a consolation goal to their name in three of their last four visits to this venue.
Taking into account that they failed to get their names on the scoresheet in their last trip here, Monchengladbach are more than likely to arrive with their guns blazing on Wednesday.
As such, count on goals down each end in this one.
