Borussia Dortmund are targeting second place in the Bundesliga, with the league title now well out of reach, and getting three points this weekend would go some way to ensuring that they are runners-up behind Bayern Munich. By the time Peter Bosz had been sacked after his ill-fated appointment as manager, the Bavarian champions had already built an unassailable lead that currently stands at 18 points with 12 games to play.
Borussia have stabilised under Peter Stöger, however, and are in third just a point behind RB Leipzig. Finishing in the top four, though, is their primary aim, and with fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen just two points behind, there is still work to be done.
The club are also in the last-32 of the Europa League and a 3-2 win over Atalanta on Thursday night means that they are on their way to advancing from the second-leg, so claiming the trophy – which brings with it Champions League qualification – remains a possibility.
The form of Michy Batshuayi has been a major positive for the Yellows since he joined from Chelsea in last month’s transfer window, and the Belgian has scored five times already. The 24-year-old is 1.90 with Tipbet to add to that total against Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday.
Gladbach are 10th and, having finished ninth in 16/17, are on course for a similar mid-table finish having lacked the consistency to challenge for European qualification to this point. A win this weekend would see them just three points behind Dortmund, however, given how close the standings are. Die Borussen, with nine defeats, have lost the most in the league’s top 13 positions, with four of those coming in their last five games.
This contrasts with Dortmund’s three straight wins, so Tipbet are expecting the visitors to leave Borussia-Park with all three points. This is available at 2.30 as one of 102 markets at the sports betting website. The home team are at 3.10, having lost just one league game there since October. As well as correct score betting options, Tipbet punters can predict whether or not there will be a red card, as well as the number of corner kicks. View them all here.
