There’s plenty at stake here for both these. Dortmund’s slim title hopes are still alive but in order to win it, they have to collect three points in this and hope that leaders Bayern lose. This is actually a tricky away game for Dortmund as they take on fourth-placed Moenchengladbach. A win is actually the only way that they guarantee a Champions League place next season.

This is a tricky game for Moenchengladbach. They are starting the weekend in fourth place but only on goal difference over Leverkusen. So even if they end up losing they won’t want it to be a big scoreline. But just matching Leverkusen’s result on the weekend may not be good enough. That is because Frankfurt are just two points back of them and could be in the picture (although they are visiting Bayern Munich). Moenchengladbach collected a 4-0 away win at Nurnberg last weekend which snapped a three-match winless streak of form (D1 L2). they have only won two of their last eight league outings now.
Their home form for the season is W9 D3 L4 and in their home campaign, they have scored at just under two goals per game. In total, 69% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals, Moenchengladbach taking a clean sheet in 38% of home fixtures. Of their nine home successes this season, eight of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. The problem for them is that they have gone winless in their last seven league Bundesliga home fixture. They have not taken a clean sheet in that sequence either. Of the home goals which they have produced, 81% of them have been netted in the second period of fixtures. Moenchengladbach have opened the scoring in 9 of their home games.

Dortmund only have a slim chance of landing the Bundesliga title. They produced a 3-2 home win over Dusseldorf last weekend to take the title race to the final weekend. They have to win this fixture and hope that Bayern Munich lose at home against Frankfurt on the same day (which doesn’t’ look too probable). Dortmund’s away record this season is W14 D5 L3 and they have averaged 1.7 goals per road game. In total, 62% of their road fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Dromund have collected a clean sheet in 38% of their road games.
Their recent away form hasn’t been great, posting just a W2 D1 L2 in their last five. So that is a big reason for their title challenge having slipped. Of the eight away wins that they have taken this season, five of them have been by a margin of just the one goal. They have netted at least two goals in each of their last five league fixtures. Of their away goals conceded, 63% of them have gone against them in the first period of games. Their defence has conceded at least two goals in each of their last three road games though. There’s really nothing left for them to lose now and everything to gain. They can go beast mode on this one.
This should be a good, competitive game, although of the two it is the home side who are naturally going to be a little more cautious. But because Dortmund are likely to score, that just opens the game up. Dortmund to win & both teams to score.
