Borussia Dortmund need a minor miracle to pip Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga title, but all they can do this weekend is win at Borussia Monchengladbach.
Lucien Favre’s side must claim victory at Borussia-Park and hope that Bayern lose at home to Eintracht Frankfurt if they are to finish on top of the table.
The good news is that Dortmund have prevailed in seven straight head-to-head meetings with Monchengladbach.
For betting purposes, it is worth noting that both teams have scored in five of those encounters, so 37/20 for an away triumph and each side to net is our first Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund prediction.
A Look At Borussia Monchengladbach’s Betting Odds
Monchengladbach have plenty to play for themselves, though, as a win here would probably see them qualify for next season’s Champions League in fourth place.
Dieter Hecking’s men are coming off a fine 4-0 thrashing of Nuremberg on the road, where Thorgan Hazard was among the scorers to reach double figures in the Bundesliga.
French forward Alassane Plea hasn’t managed to maintain his sparkling early-season form but remains a threat up front, while Matthias Ginter and Nico Elvedi are highly-rated central defenders.
However, Monchengladbach have had their limitations exposed when facing Germany’s elite clubs recently, being hammered 5-1 here by Bayern Munich in March, while RB Leipzig left with a 2-1 success last month.
Looking at the 4/1 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 in the multiple correct score market.
A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds
Admittedly, Dortmund have been far from convincing of late, following up a 4-2 home loss to Schalke and a 2-2 draw at Werder Bremen by just scraping past Fortuna Dusseldorf 3-2.
Christian Pulisic, Thomas Delaney and Mario Gotze were on target for Favre’s side, but they were ultimately grateful for Watford loanee Dodi Lukebakio putting a penalty wide.
The visitors can go into this game feeling little pressure, though, and that will suit this attack-minded outfit.
England winger Jadon Sancho has shone with 14 assists and 11 goals this term, Paco Alcacer has 18 successful strikes to his credit and Chelsea-bound Pulisic has finished the season strongly.
However, Marco Reus is usually the man to watch out for in this fixture, having scored seven times in 10 games against his former club, netting on the last three visits to this venue.
The 29-year-old makes a timely return from a two-match suspension and 28/1 for him to break the deadlock in a 2-1 away triumph completes our Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund betting tips.
