The start of the competition in this year’s Bundesliga has brought us a tense battle at the top of the ladder since the ten best teams are separated with “just” six points between each other after seven matches behind them. The upcoming weekend brings another big clash – Borrusia Monchengladbach, who entered the season in the best shape of all the contenders and they are currently on the first position, travels to Signal Iduna Park where they will face Borussia Dortmund.

This tactical analysis preview will provide analysis of the tactics that Lucien Favre and Marco Rose will try to implement to win the match, which can secure them the three points that could be key for one of them in the fight for the throne.

Expected lineups

Both teams would be eager to win in this match, so the sides with which they will enter the game will look to be offensive. In the hosts’ squad, there are some problems injuries. Łukasz Piszczek is probably out of the game due to the injury he picked up in the fixture against Freiburg. Nico Schulz has been left out of the team for quite some time now, and Paco Alcácer’s place is also under question.

Although they have some issues, the home team boasts a strong squad for the upcoming match and they will have a respectable lineup on Saturday.
