Borussia Dortmund - Week 11

Borussia Dortmund vs. Borussia Monchengladbach

 

Match Date: 09 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Signal Iduna Park

 

Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund eventually fell into the relegation zone after failing to capitalize on its early lead against Bayern Munchen last weekend. It was the club’s 5th consecutive loss and perhaps, the very first time to see them decline to the 17th spot of the Bundesliga table.

 

Dortmund has been exhibiting a lackluster performance since the season started and this has been hurting its chances of clinching the title. The match against Bayern gave them the opportunity to snatch its 3rd win after Marco Reus nailed a goal on the 31st.

 

Unfortunately, the ruthless Bavarians have managed to turn the odds into their favor, much to the disappointment of Jurgen Klopp and his men.

 

Borussia Monchengladbach

Sitting comfortably in the 3rd spot of the table, Monchengladbach manifests confidence in beating the online betting favorite, Borussia Dortmund.

 

Monchengladbach, along with Bayern remains undefeated since the season started. Unfortunately, despite the disparities and gaps in rank and form, the club cannot be too complacent as Dortmund is determined to impress at home.

 

There is also the possibility for the match to end in an even steven finish.

 

Prediction

Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Borussia Monchengladbach

Hoffenheim vs. FC Cologne

 

Match Date: 08 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Rhein-Neckar Arena

 

Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim is eager to leave the traces of its bitter loss to Borussia Monchengladbach behind and generate three (3) points in its upcoming match.

 

Pitted against the newly-promoted FC Colonge, it is highly possible for the club to capitalize on its experience and home court advantage to gain the lead and maintain its momentum.

 

Hoffenheim is one of the league’s biggest scene-stealers this season. Sitting on the 4th spot of the table, the club is able has only lost once and has been showing a lot of grit, which generates fear among its opponents in the league.

 

FC Cologne

They  may be new, but certainly, Cologne is a far-flung shot of a club that will easily retaliate in any pitch war.

 

The newly-promoted squad gave Freiburg a hard time earning a win and there is a high possibility for them to do the same against Hoffenheim.  As a matter of fact, they have already brought Borussia Dortmund down and if Hoffenheim becomes too relaxed, they may also suffer the same fate.

 

Expect a down the wire match to take place between the two equally aggressive squads.

 

Prediction

Hoffenheim 3-2 FC Cologne
