Borussia Dortmund will go up against Borussia Mönchengladbach this weekend, looking to maintain their charge for the Bundesliga title.

There are just three games left to play this season and the Bundesliga title race is set to go down to the wire. Borussia Dortmund will look to continue their blistering home form on Saturday as they take on Borussia Mönchengladbach.

The Black and Yellows will know that anything other than the three points on Saturday could spell curtains for their bid to win the Bundesliga title. And Edin Terzic will be keen to ensure that his players pick up where they left off last weekend, when they thrashed Wolfsburg 6-0.

Borussia Dortmund will have to make do without Jamie Bynoe-Gittens on Saturday, with the talented winger set to miss the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury. But Raphael Guerreiro and Nico Schlotterbeck could be in line to start after fully recovering from their injuries.

Gregor Kobel will line up between the sticks for Borussia Dortmund once again on Saturday. The Swiss shot-stopper made some crucial saves against Wolfsburg, and he will look to keep his fine run of form going in the final weeks of the season.

Mats Hummels was in inspired form last weekend, and deserves to keep his place in the starting XI against Gladbach. Niklas Süle hasn’t done much wrong either, but Nico Schlotterbeck will also be pushing for a return to the side.

Edin Terzic faces another selection dilemma in the full-back positions. Raphael Guerreiro has more assists than any other player in the Bundesliga this season and should return to the starting XI this weekend. Julian Ryerson and Marius Wolf both impressed against Wolfsburg. And it will be interesting to see who gets the nod to start on Saturday.

Borussia Dortmund’s midfield trio is likely to remain unchanged, with Emre Can set to start as the anchor in the middle of the park. Jude Bellingham will play in the number eight, and will look to build on the brace he scored last weekend. Julian Brandt also found his form against Wolfsburg, and will have a similar role to play against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

In attack, Karim Adeyemi and Donyell Malen are both in the best form of their BVB careers. They will start out wide, with Sebastien Haller set to lead the Borussia Dortmund attack.
