On the 13th day of the Bundesliga, Borussia Mönchengladbach is a guest at Borussia Dortmund. In recent years this has been a top game, but this year it is a duel between the 7th and the 13th of the Bundesliga. Both teams played at least nationally so far not a very good role and often disappointed. However, the season is still young and therefore they can still change this situation.
Especially Borussia Dortmund has already proved this season that they can also top performances. They were the only team to defeat FC Bayern. With 21 points you are already nine points behind table leader RB Leipzig. Therefore, three points are absolutely necessary in this game. At home, BVB is still undefeated. In six home games there were four wins and two draws with a goal ratio of 13: 3. Striking: In the last three home games they scored only two goals, but conceded only a goal. Apart from a 1: 1 draw against Hertha BSC Berlin there was also a draw against Schalke (0: 0) as well as the previously mentioned victory against FC Bayern München (1: 0). In Frankfurt they wanted to score the seventh Ligasieg, but this did not matter, because the Frankfurts Dortmund were largely cold. Coach Thomas Tuchel was visibly niggled after the match, so the chances are that there will be some changes. Thus, Ousmane Dembele, Marco Reus and Christian Pulisic are candidates for the start-up.
Even more disappointing is the performance of the foals. The Champions League participant Gladbach is currently on the 13th place with 13 points and already 9 points behind an international starting place. But as 22 days are still to come, they can still change this situation. But they must win again in the Bundesliga. Gladbach has been waiting for a win since Matchday 5. There were only three draws in the last seven games, and they were all home. On the other hand, there were three defeats. These away games were also on Schalke (0: 4), in Munich (0: 2) and in Berlin (0: 3). Against 1899 Hoffenheim (1: 1) they were close to a victory, but they lacked the faith in success. Gladbach is one of the top teams in the league. They have already proved this in the Champions League. Now it is about convincing again in the league.
