Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund Tips - Visitors to pull off close win

All eyes will be on the visiting manager Marco Rose as he returns to Mӧnchengladbach, only a few months after controversially leaving for Dortmund. 

Coincidentally, when Rose was in charge of Die Fohlen last year, he beat his new team 4-2 at Borussi Park, which ended Mӧnchengladbach’s run of 11 consecutive defeats to Dortmund. 

This season, however, under Adi Hütter they are struggling: 16th place, with only four points from their first five matches, their worst start to a Bundesliga season since 2004. Last week, they lost at Augsburg 1-0. 

Borussia Dortmund’s season is as chaotic as ever. In five matches, they have scored 17 times but also conceded 11 goals, the second-best attack and the third-worst defence in the league. Surely, therefore, goals are guaranteed here? 

Striking sensation Erling Haaland is joint-top of the scoring leader board with Robert Lewandowski (unsurprisingly) on seven goals each. Will the Norwegian star add to his tally here?

Dortmund made it four wins in a row in all competitions by defeating Union Berlin 4-2 at home last week behind two goals from Haaland. 

The last meeting between Dortmund and Gladbach took place in the DFP Pokal quarterfinals last March with the former posting a 1-0 win at Borussia Park.

Verdict

We expect a close game with Dortmund emerging by the slimmest of margins.
