Borussia Dortmund – Borussia M’Gladbach (Bundesliga)

Yet to know the taste of defeat and to concede a single goal, Borussia Dortmund will face Borussia M’Gladbach this Saturday, at Signal Iduna Park, for the 6th round of the Bundesliga. The home side are enjoying a great start of the season, having moved to the top of the league table in the last round with a victory at Hamburger’s ground, but now they need to win to maintain their lead. Borussia M’Gladbach, on their turn, won their second victory of the season by triumphing with reception to the recently-promoted Stuttgart.

Borussia Dortmund are at the top of the league table with 13 points, result of 4 wins and 1 draw, with 13 goals scored and no goals conceded. There is no doubt that Peter Bosz has been doing a fantastic job at the helm of this team, with Dortmund coming here unbeaten and, most impressively, without a single goal conceded in the five games they played in the Bundesliga. The win against Hamburger SV, in the last round, was a very important victory, which culminated with the draw of Hannover 96, and left Peter Bosz’s side as isolated leaders in the Bundesliga, with Bayern Munich only 1 point behind them, which enhance the importance of another victory here, this time at home, where they are always stronger.

The defensive organization has even been a surprise factor in a team that usually concedes many goals per season, and look surprisingly stable despite playing a risky high defensive line. Offensively they have been a devastating force, always very dangerous in creating chances through individual skill and by attacking down the wings, and are very strong in finishing scoring chances, with especial courtesy of Aubameyang, the 2nd top scorer of Bundesliga, with 5 goals scored. They are also equally strong in offensive set pieces and in counter-attacks. The Black and Yellows have only played two games at home, wining both and scoring 7 goals in the process.  In order to remain at the top of the table, these 3 points are mandatory to be added, although the vast list of injuries are a huge problem that makes it difficult for Peter Bosz to rotate the squad.

In their last 5 official matches, Dortmund has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 2-0 win against Hertha Berlin. This result was followed by a 0-0 draw against Freiburg, a 3-1 defeat against Tottenham, for the Champions League, a 5-0 win against FC Koln, and in their last round, a 0-3 win against Hamburger SV. Erik Durm, Guerreiro, Marco Reus, Schurrle, Rode and Schmelzer are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Burki – Piszczek, Sokratis, Toprak and Zagadou – Castro, Sahin and Gotze – Yarmolenko, Aubameyang and Philipp.

bundesligaBorussia M’Gladbach, on their turn, are in 7th place in the league table with 8 points, result of 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat, with 7 goals scored and 5 goals conceded. After three consecutive games without a win, the Potros have finally returned to wining ways, triumphing in the last round against the recently-promoted Stuttgart, regaining confidence to keep wining and, consequently, entering in the race for european spots. Borussia M’Gladbach are, usually, an irregular team and although they score many goals per season, they also concede a lot. Some of their defensive difficulties have already been evident this season, especially in defending attacks down the wings and in aerial duels.

The Potros usually play with width and attack mostly through the right side. The team will face a much more difficult task here than they did in the previous round, but have the quality to get opportunities on the break and possibly score the first goal against dortmund in the Bundesliga. M’Gladbach have only played two games away from home, drawing both with 4 goals scored and 4 conceded, and also show a vast list of injuries.

In their last 5 official games, Borussia M’Gladbach has a record of 2 victories, 2 draws and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with 1-0 win against FC Koln. This result was followed by a 2-2 draw against Augsburg, a 0-1 defeat against Frankfurt, a 2-2 draw against Leipzig, and in their last round, a 2-0 win against Stuttgart. Tobias Strobl, Josip Drmic, Traoré, Bénes and Doucouré are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Sommer – Elvedi, Ginter, Vestergaard and Wendt – Hermann, Kramer, Zakaria and Hazard – Stindl and Raffael.

Borussia Dortmund has won 5 of their last 8 direct clashes, losing the remaining three.

As is usual in the games between these two teams, this should be an intense and very lively match, with two teams with great offensive quality. Dortmund has a more organized team and is scoring plenty of goals, and at home with the unconditional support of the Yellow Wall, they will not accept any result here but the victory.
