Borussia Dortmund vs Borussia Monchengladbach: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Borussia Dortmund are at the 2nd spot in the standings, just six points adrift from the leader. But team has a terrible defensive record for a title contender - 36 goals were conceded in just 22 matches. But team looks great at home, winning nine matches out of 11.
The Bumblebees suffered an unexpected defeat in the Europa League, they were beaten by Rangers (2:4).
Borussia Monchengladbach are currently at the 13th spot in the standings, so it is surely not the best season for the team. Actually scoring record is not bad at all - 30 goals in 22 matches. But the Colts are struggling on away games - they won only two out of 11.
A victory slipped away in the previous road fixture against a relegation-threatened Arminia (1:1), but Augsburg, who are also in the relegation zone, suffered a defeat to the Colts (3:2).
Borussia Dortmund won two out of 10 most recent home games by a 2:0 score
In each of seven most recent home games Borussia scored at least two goals
Borussia Dortmund kept a clean sheet in two out of three most recent head-to-head games at home
In our opinion, home team will come out on top today. Hosts are fighting for a title, so they need only a victory today, plus their opponent is not in a best condition. Visitors won only one away game out of eleven fixtures.
We think that Dortmund side will put up another quality performance in a home head-to-head match, it's been a long time since Borussia suffered a defeat here in a head-to-head game.
Our prediction - Borussia Dortmund to win the match
In our opinion, a bet on total over is the best choice, because teams usually score many goals. Hosts are not perfect on defense, so visitors should be able to score as well and it's been a while since Dortmund side scored less than two goals at home.
Our second bet is on total over 3,5 goals
