BVB vs BMG
Despite a very strong investment in the summer transfer window, Dortmund cannot explode in this season. In the Bundesliga alone, although having only lost one game since the beginning of the season, the draw was too much for Dortmund to rise to the top of the rankings. In the European arena, after the defeat to Inter Milan, Dortmund dropped to 3rd place in Group F. Thus, Dortmund has not achieved any success in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League, so the National Cup. can be considered as the ultimate solution for this season of Black Gold.
The difficulty for Dortmund now is that they have to fight in many arenas at the same time with a dense schedule. However, with a thick and deep force, coach Lucien Favre can still have suitable solutions. Moreover, this is also the time when the new contracts take effect. The Brandt or Hazard are trying to express themselves in the new club shirt. In this match, Dortmund will welcome Gladbach at home, where they have been unbeaten up to 6 times, including 2 draws and 4 victories.
On the other side, Gladbach does not have a thick squad like Dortmund to have more options. Therefore, they do not set too many goals in the national cup arena and in fact, their performance in this arena in recent years is also relatively normal. In terms of form, Gladbach is very flourishing. In the Bundesliga, they are performing relatively well in the early stages of the season when they won 6 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, thereby temporarily leading the rankings with 19 points after 9 rounds.
Gladbach's uplifting performance is partly due to the fact that they have not faced the big guys. Therefore, facing Dortmund in the match tonight is the real challenge for them. Especially when they have to be a guest on Signal Iduna Park, M’gladbach does not have many opportunities to surprise in front of the Signal Iduna Park team. In previous meetings, Dortmund showed their superiority by winning all 7 times the two teams met. With class, superior forces and home advantage, Dortmund will continue that series of achievements and make Gladbach empty-handed.
