Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK will host Saturday’s football game between Borussia M’gladbach and Borussia Dortmund. Borussia M’gladbach aim to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Nurnberg and seeing that a victory over the Millionaires will see them book their place in the Champions League, we predict that the hosts will leave their hearts on the field in the last game of the season.
A man to watch in the home team will be Thorgan Hazard, who scored his 10th goal of the season at the weekend. Lucien Favre’s men, on the other hand, are still in the race for the title, but beating die Fohlen on the road is easier said than done. Borussia M’gladbach proved their worth in the 4-0 triumph over Nurnberg and seeing that Borussia Dortmund have been struggling at the back of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side.
Highlighted Player (Thorgan Hazard):
While his brother Eden Hazard stars for Chelsea, Thorgan Hazard plays for Borussia Monchengladbach in Bundesliga. Thorgan was born in La Louviere, Belgium on 29 march, 1993 and he played for the likes of Royal Stade Brainois, Tubize and Lens during his youth career.
Hazard made 14 appearances for Lens before joining Chelsea in 2012. He did not make his Chelsea debut as he was immediately sent on loan to Zulte Waregem, where he scored 17 goals in 73 league appearances for the club. On 5 July, 2014 he signed a loan deal with Borussia Monchengladbach and in February, 2015 he signed a permanent contract with the Bundesliga outfit. The Belgian midfielder made his first start for the club on 24 September, 2014 against Hamburg.
Speaking of his international career, Thorgan Hazard made his Belgium debut on 29 May, 2013 in a 4-2 win over USA. He has 15 caps for Belgium U21 and he scored nine goals in 15 appearances for the team. His full name is Thorgan Ganael Francis Hazard.
Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football.
Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times.
However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
