Moenchengladbach News and Form

Moenchengladbach have a tough game here. They are in fourth place in the division, but only on goal difference over Leverkusen, so Champions League football is not secured yet. Because of a narrow goal difference to Leverkusen, they don’t want to lose heavily if it’s a loss which they suffer. 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. Frankfurt though are visiting Bayern Munich. Last weekend Moenchengladbach got a great 4-0 away win at Nurnberg, a win that snapped a three-match winless streak of form (D1 L2). That’s just two wins in their last eight league games now.

Their home form for the season is W9 D3 L4 and in their home campaign, Moenchengladbach have averaged under two goals per game. 69% of their home games this season finished over the 2.5 goal line, Moenchengladbach taking a clean sheet in 38% of home fixtures. Eight of their nine home wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.

But they are winless in their last seven on home soil in the Bundesliga. 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.

Borussia Dortmund News and Form

Dortmund looked to be cruising to the league title at one point. Now their fate is out of their hands. A 3-2 win over Dusseldorf last season saw them at least extend the title race to the final weekend. In order for them to rip the title away from Bayern, Dortmund have to get three points here and hope that Bayern lose against Frankfurt (which doesn’t look too probable).

The away record in the Bundesliga that BVB have produced 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. Dortmund have collected a clean sheet in 38% of their road games.

They have not been in great form on their travels, picking up just a W2 D1 L2 record in their last five. So it’s that dip in away form which has been costly to them in their title race. Five of Dortmund’s away wins this season have been by a margin of one goal.

They have scored at least two goals in each of their last five league fixtures. 63% of the away goal which they have conceded have been in the first half of matches. Dortmund have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games on the road. Basically, they are in the position of having nothing to lose so they can take a fearless approach to the fixture.
