Match Highlights & Full Match – Available after the game end
Injury troubled Borrusia Dortmund welcomes Borussia Mönchengladbach hoping to carry out the run of two victories and take a revenge to Borussia Mönchengladbach for their last encounter and 2-0 loss.
With Bayern Munich having 20 points more, and almost sealed the title, Borussia switched focus to remain on the 2nd place ahead of Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen. With a lot of players on the injury list Klopp may decide to give a rest to Robert Lewandowski due to a knee problem and to prepare him for the Champions league second leg match against Zenit St Petersburg on which is on schedule on Wednesday.
Juergen Klopp’s men have won four of their last five top-flight matches, scoring 13 goals and conceding just once in those victories, with the 3-0 defeat to Hamburg their only slip-up of late.
Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp says his side will still not be able to give 100 percent against Moenchengladback this weekend because of injuries.
Dortmund hope to avoid another ‘strange’ defeat to Moenchengladbach
Borussia Mönchengladbach meanwhile have taken just three points from a possible 21 since the season resumed in late January and have dropped to 8th place after a promising start of the season and some good results. Since November, Lucien Favre’s men
have not won on the road in Bundesliga but thanks to the form of Brazilian striker Raffael who scored three goals in his last frous games, they remain hopeful.
