(odds taken 1500 GMT, Wednesday 16 September)


This season, will be an even harder test of their squad in the league as all over their rivals including their opponents on Saturday have strengthened and will want to ensure that they are one step above them all if they are to have any hopes of winning their first Bundesliga title since their back-to-back success between 2010 and 2012.

In their most recent matchup, a first round DFB Pokal match against Bundesliga 2 side MSV Duisburg. Dortmund earned a routine 5-0 victory with a plethora of 5 different scorers. New signing Jude bellingham managed to score on his debut, alongside goals from Jadon Sancho, Gio Reyna, Thorgan Hazard and club captain Marco Reus.

A promising sign of things to come from a side who were the second highest scorers in the league last season with 84 goals.

With the arsenal of attacking players that they have at their disposal including serial goal getter Haaland. Goals are almost guaranteed when this Dortmund side is playing. The questions arise when you take a look at their backline.

Dortmund have become a team who have veered away from a traditional back four because of numerous situations where the game has been lost due to defensive fragility. In the resigning of Mats Hummels was supposed to influence that issue last season, however Dortmund still conceded over 41 goals. 9 more than Bayern Munich and 4 more than RB Leipzig in third place.

Lucien Favre still hasn’t decided on his first choice back three opting to play Emre Can as the right sided defender in that backline on Monday night. Once the defense has been finalised and settled upon then Dortmund can start dominating games rather than the gung ho goal fest we were witness too last season.


Borussia Monchengladbach Review – Can Gladbach start off this season and issue a warning that they are title contenders?

A whopping start minus one small blip in preseason preparations would have M’gladbach as the worst possible opponent to face in an opening fixture in the Bundesliga. They have been in free scoring and free flowing form so far in the new season all ready for their opening match.

A total of 22 goals in 6 games including an 8-0 win in the first round of the DFB Pokal Cup and 5 clean sheets in those 6 matches would suggest that Gladbach are really serious when it comes to winning the Bundesliga.

That resounding 8-0 victory last Saturday will definitely have boosted the spirits of the club before their curtain opener this weekend. BBut it was the manner of the victory that the most positives will derive from.

Amassing a total possession for the game of 79% and having 40 shots attempted throughout the match shows that the players they have are hungry for more despite being in control for the whole match.

Dortmund will need to be particularly careful of midfielder Florian Neuhaus who bagged two goals on Saturday as well as former dortmund wide man Jonas Hofmann who put in stellar performances in this match and will be wanting to continue this fine form of attacking football.
