Although Bayern Munich are three points clear of RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga prior to the weekend fixtures, third and fourth-placed team Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund are just six and four points behind respectively within the former team having played one game less. In one of the closes title races for years, a win for either team would maintain contact with the top of the table, but defeat would be considered a major setback. Both outfits are attack-minded, and it could be a case of whichever team scores most goals wins the contest.

For Borussia Monchengladbach, the appointment of former RB Salzburg boss Marco Rose as manager has been a masterstroke with the Foals leading the Bundesliga at one stage this term. Unbeaten in domestic action on home soil since the beginning of September, the hosts had won each of eight league fixtures since that time until conceding a very late equaliser when playing Hoffenheim towards late February. Bayern Munich were beaten at Borussia-Park back in December when the hosts scored the winner with a late penalty, but Leipzig are the only visiting German team to win at the venue this term.

Visitors Borussia Dortmund will arrive in Monchengladbach having netted in each of their Bundesliga matches since a 4-0 loss at Bayern Munich back in November. The Black and Yellows have lost three subsequent domestic games on the road since that defeat including a recent 4-3 loss at Bayer Leverkusen when 3-2 ahead towards the latter stages. The January signing of prolific striker Erling Haaland has been a boost for the visitors and four competitive victories earned since that loss at Leverkusen will ensure a confident Dortmund team ahead of this fixture.

Borussia Dortmund to win the Bundesliga without Bayern Munich

Prediction

Although Borussia Dortmund have won by 1-0 and 2-0 scorelines in their two most recent matches, at least three goals had been scored in their previous nineteen matches. A 1-0 win against Freiburg last weekend was secured without Haaland for most of the game, but it was the first time Dortmund had failed to score more than once this year. As for the hosts, they have scored thirteen goals in their latest five fixtures but have also conceded at least once in all six games played this year. Therefore, a good bet may be for Over 2.5 goals and Both Teams to Score priced at 4/6 with bet365.

A second pick is for Over 3.5 goals to be scored offered at 6/5 by bet365. Apart from their latest 1-1 home draw with Hoffenheim, Borussia Monchengladbach had netted at least twice in their eight previous Bundesliga home games, although just one clean sheet was registered in those matches. With Haaland expected to be restored to the visiting starting line-up, Borussia Dortmund will hope to exploit the apparent weakness in the home defence, but the Red and Blacks have conceded at least three times in three of their games this year. It could be a case of attacking defences in this encounter.
