Borussia Dortmund will continue their bid to win the Bundesliga title this weekend as they go up against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

The battle of the Borussias takes centre stage in the Bundesliga on Saturday as Borussia Dortmund host Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Black and Yellows are locked in the Bundesliga title race and go into this weekend one point behind Bayern Munich, with three games to go before the end of the season.

Borussia Dortmund will know that if they want to pip Bayern Munich to the Bundesliga title, they must get nine points from their remaining three matches. Edin Terzic’s side have an excellent record at home this season, but Gladbach came out on top in the reverse fixture and could cause problems to the BVB defence on Saturday.

It will be interesting to see if Terzic makes any changes to the team that handed Wolfsburg a 6-0 defeat last weekend. Raphael Guerreiro and Nico Schlotterbeck should both be fit to feature. But Jamie Bynoe-Gittens is set to miss the rest of the season after undergoing a shoulder surgery.

Gladbach will have to make do without Alassane Plea on Saturday, with the forward suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season. Marcus Thuram and Nico Elvedi are both doubts ahead of the game.

Former Borussia Dortmund duo Jonas Hofmann and Julian Weigl will likely have a key role to play for the Foals on Saturday. Ramy Bensebaini will also feature against the team he will likely join in the summer.
