Borussia Mochengladbach will host high flying Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, the game of the day in the Bundesliga's first weekend back after the winter break. Borussia Dortmund are looking to get back inthe Champions League this season and are led by the goals of Aubeymeyang who is top scorer across Europe at the moment, with Reus and Kagawa providing support and Mkhitaryan also one of the creative influences for Dortmund. Borussia Dortmund have struggled at times on the road though losing two of their last three on the road and failing to win in five of their nine away Bundesliga games this season.
Borussia Mochengladbach have been terrific at home since the end of September, after a slow start in which they lost their first five games including a 4-0 hammering by Borussia Dortmund in Dortmund, Mochengladbach have now won six of their last seven home games including a 3-1 win over Bayern Munich, the only domestic loss that Bayern have suffered this year. Borussia Mochengladbach are a quality side with Stindl, Raffael and Johnson the main players that will bring the fight to Dortmund. For me though I think that this game at worst should be a coinflip, getting Borussia Mochengladbach as a massive underdog is just too much to pass up.
Take Borussia Mochengladbach on the handicap at a max bet and then spread some on the money line as well. These are two quality teams going head to head but the value is definitely on the home underdog.
