Monchengladbach have top four within their sights as they host Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Friday evening.
The game is poised to be a competitive encounter. Read on to get our betting predictions for the game as offered by Bet9ja betting app.
Gladbach’s impressive run of three wins and a draw from their last four league matches has seen them make a serious challenge for the top four positions once again this season. Of these three wins, the most impressive was the thrilling 3-2 win over defending champions Bayern Munich, as they came from 0-2 down to completely turn it around and breathe life in their top-four campaign.
The fact that they have also kept the ship afloat without leading striker Marco Thuram speaks volumes of their depth and determination. Breel Embolo and Nico Elvedi have deputized well for him. Elvedi scored the only goal in their 1-0 win over Bremen last time out.
This is a huge game for Marco Rose’s side as it presents them with a perfect opportunity to get into the top four equation.
Despite seemingly turning over a new leaf under new manager Edin Terzic, Dortmund appear to have hit a brick wall in their recent. They dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Mainz last weekend before following that up with a lacklustre 2-1 loss at Leverkusen in midweek.
The manner of their loss to Leverkusen will certainly raise some concerns about their ability to sustain top performances. They were completely outclassed from start to finish.
Terzic will be looking for a response here from his players and they would need to put up a much better shift to get anything out of this game.
This should be an entertaining match between two sides with plenty of attacking talent. Marco Thuram is likely to make a return to the starting lineup for Gladbach. They could certainly do with his pace and power which has been in short supply in his absence. For Dortmund, as stated earlier, Haaland is also back in the side and he has looked sharp since his return. Goals have been a common theme in this fixture with the last three producing over 2.5 goals. Bet9ja pays odds of 1.46 for a repeat of this and we are going with it for our first betting tip. The alternative bet here would be both teams to score which they have priced @ 1.40. A combination of both pays @ 1.59.
Given the top four equation in play here, we can expect a rather physical encounter here with neither side wanting to lose ground. There were nine cards issued when these teams faced off in Monchengladbach last season. Backing Over 3.5 bookings here pays @ 1.68 with Bet9ja and we are rolling with this as our last shout from this game. If you want to go one better, the price shoots up to a massive 2.62 for Over 4.5 bookings!
