Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia Dortmund will be aiming to rejoin the title race when they welcome Borussia M’gladbach to their Signal Iduna Park on Saturday afternoon. The Yellow-Blacks were beaten by Stuttgart on the road before the international break, but they are seen as hot favourites do defeat die Fohlen in front of home fans. Dutch forward Donyell Malen is pushing for a start, while experienced defender Mats Hummels should be fit for the match despite limping off with injury in the defeat to die Schwaben. Marcel Lotka misses out through suspension, while all Gregor Kobel, Felix Nmecha, Julien Duranville, and Mateu Morey are sidelined with injuries.
Borussia M’gladbach, on the other hand, face an uphill task in round 12 and given their negative record at Signal Iduna Park, home win should be considered. You should bear in mind that Borussia Dortmund have defeated Borussia M’gladbach in each of the last ten meetings between the two sides at the venue. The likes of Jantschke, Ullrich, Siebatcheu, Itakura, Sippel, Wolf, Sanches, and Omlin are injured for the visiting side.
