Borussia Dortmund vs Borussia M'Gladbach

Dortmund will be hoping to continue a tremendous record when they welcome Borussia M'Gladbach to the Signal Iduna Park. They are the only team in Europe's top five leagues yet to concede this season. They won 3-0 at Hamburg on Wednesday night, which saw Shinji Kagawa grab his first goal of the season and Christian Pulisic netting Dortmund's 3000th Bundesliga goal. M'Gladbach, meanwhile, dished out a 2-0 home win over Stuttgart in midweek, courtesy of Raffael's brace.


Match Stats:

  • Borussia Dortmund 6-1 Borussia M'Gladbach
  • Shots: 16-8
  • Possession: 72%-28%
  • Corner kicks: 7-0

Borussia Dortmund put in a swashbuckling performance at home to Borussia Mönchengladbach at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK in Saturday's late game, coming away with a deserved 6-1 win that included a hat-trick for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Borussia Dortmund are now two points clear at the top of the Bundesliga standings following a breathtaking display of attacking football at home to Gladbach. It took almost half an hour for their pressure to take its toll, with Maximilian Philipp flicking in superbly from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's cross, and once Philipp added a second the outcome was never in any doubt.

Aubameyang grabbed a hat-trick in the second half and although Gladbach sporadically threatened on the break, they failed to capitalise on their chances, only scoring when they were already 5-0 down. The one consolation for the visitors is that they became the first team to find the net against BVB in the Bundesliga this season.
