Monchengladbach vs Dortmund: Visitors vulnerable after Euro KO

Monchengladbach vs Dortmund: Visitors vulnerable after Euro KO

Kick Off: 1730, 22/04/2017

Stadium: Westfalenstadion

TV: BT Sport 1

Borussia Monchengladbach will hope to catch Borussia Dortmund still reeling from their Champions League exit when these teams meet in the Bundesliga on Saturday evening.

The hosts still have a chance of qualifying for Europe next season if coming through this test and then taking advantage of a fairly kind run-in.

Looking at the Monchengladbach vs Dortmund odds, we reckon 12/5 for a home win is great value.

A Look At Borussia Monchengladbach’s Betting Odds

Borussia Monchengladbach haven’t matched last season’s exploits, when finishing fourth in the table, but they are just a couple of points off the top six heading into the closing stages of the campaign.

A poor start cost Andre Schubert his job but former Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking has lifted Monchengladbach up from being just three points above the relegation zone going into the winter break.

Back-to-back wins over Hertha Berlin and Cologne were followed by an entertaining 5-3 loss at Hoffenheim and Hecking is clearly intent on going all out for victories at this stage.

It is 18/5 for Monchengladbach to win and over 2.5 goals in the game.

A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds

Thomas Tuchel has assembled an exciting, young Borussia Dortmund side, but they have shown some defensive frailties, especially on the road, and were made to pay by Monaco in Wednesday’s 3-1 Champions League loss.

On the domestic front, they have won just two of their last 10 Bundesliga away games, with four defeats suffered during that period.

Overall, only a third of their points in this competition have been earned on the road and that travel sickness could be their undoing again.

For correct score punters, we like 13/2 for Monchengladbach to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1.
