Market: Borussia Dortmund wins
Chance: 10/11 @ 888sport
Looking to set another benchmark on their journey this weekend, Borussia Dortmund will make the journey to a struggling Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, watching former manager Marco Rose move to BVB over the summer, Borussia Mönchengladbach have struggled to find their feet since the 2021/22 season opener. Despite a tough 1-1 draw against reigning champions Bayern Munich on the opening weekend, Die Fohlen were last seen in another poor performance. While many across the Bundesliga felt they had a golden opportunity on the road to Augsburg, Adi Hütter’s side suffered a troubling 1-0 defeat on the road. With only one top-flight win to their credit in one of their first five Bundesliga matches, Gladbach were also blown away thanks to a 4-0 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 21 August. Likewise, it should also be noted that the hosts on Saturday were hit with a 1-0 defeat the last time BVB arrived in town.
As for the guests, while Dortmund may have been hit by that shock away defeat in Freiburg last month, Die Borussen has recovered somewhat. Putting on a wild show last weekend when they finally hit Union Berlin for four on home turf, BVB are now enjoying a captivating four-game winning streak in all formats. Beginning their Champions League adventure with a 2-1 away win at Besiktas on 15 September, Rose’s new side are doing well. Once again earning a reputation for its free scoring performances, Dortmund also have an offensive talisman that enjoys a notable purple patch. With Erling Haaland having already racked up 16 club and country goals so far this season, there is no doubt that BVB should be sniffing a chance here. By picking up a 1-0 win the last time they made the trip to Gladbach, we’re claiming a similar away win.
