Monchengladbach – Dortmund | 22/01/2021

Borussia Monchengladbach take on Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Friday evening, with the hosts able to move above their forthcoming opponents into fourth place in the table with a victory. Dortmund, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back after a bruising 2-1 defeat at Champions League qualification rivals Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.

Borussia Mönchengladbach’s 1-0 win in midweek gave them a third victory via a one goal-margin from their last four Bundesliga games (W3, D1). However despite that form, it’s worth noting that the reverse fixture was the only league game this season in which Gladbach failed to score (0-3), and was one of three Bundesliga games that saw them concede first (W1, D1, L1).

The hosts have lost only once at home this Bundesliga campaign (W4, D4, L1) and are yet to lose a first half here (HT: W3, D6). It’s rare for Gladbach to excel over both periods though, which is why they’ve won both halves just once at home in the Bundesliga so far, and have scored during both halves just twice. Furthermore, four of their five won/lost home league games have been decided by a one-goal margin.

Dortmund are winless in two matches (D1, L1) and have struggled after conceding first, winning just one of eight Bundesliga games when doing so (W1, D2, L5) – seven of which came across their last ten matches! However in contrast, Dortmund have won eight of nine after scoring first (W8, L1).

Although losing two of their last three away league games (W1, L2), the visitors have still collected more points away than at home (W5, D1, L3). However they are yet to lead at HT away this Bundesliga campaign, and therefore Dortmund have scored 15 of their 16 away league goals after HT, subsequently returning a positive second-half record (2H: W6, D1, L2).
