The DFB Pokal returns this week with eight teams left in the competition fighting for the German domestic cup. One name that is not in the tournament is Bayern Munich, who were beaten by second division club Holstein Keil in the previous round. The door was left open with Bayern Munich’s elimination and both Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund have their sights on lifting the trophy.

Marco Rose is currently Gladbach’s coach but will take over Borussia Dortmund next season. The Foals are not in form and go into the game fresh off of a 3-2 loss to RB Leipzig at the weekend. They raced out to a 2-0 lead at halftime but conceded three goals in the second half to lose. Borussia Monchengladbach are on a five-game winless run in the league and also fell to Manchester City 2-0 in the Champions League last 16 first leg a week ago. Things are not going well for Rose and company.

Borussia Dortmund have had their own issues this term. They are in good form going into the game on Tuesday night with two wins and a draw from their last three Bundesliga matches. The Yellow and Black also claimed Champions League last 16 first leg win versus Sevilla.

The teams have met twice already this season with the home team claiming a win in each match. Will the home side claim another victory when Borussia Dortmund visit Borussia Monchengladbach?

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Odds

When these teams met at Signal Iduna Park earlier this season, Borussia Dortmund claimed a 3-0 win thanks to a goal from Giovanni Reyna and two from Erling Haaland. Borussia Monchengladbach got revenge on that loss when the teams met at Borussia Park. Unlike the previous match, it was a back-and-forth affair.

Nico Elvedi opened the scoring for the Foals but Haaland cancelled out the goal with two of his own. Elvedi struck back with a second goal just before halftime as the teams went into the half at 2-2. Borussia Monchengladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini and Marcus Thuram added two further goals in the second half to give the Foals the victory.

Borussia Monchengladbach are underdogs to get a win and progress to the last four of the DFB Pokal. They are at odds of 23/10 to win at full-time versus the Yellow and Black. Borussia Dortmund are at odds of 6/5 to win and progress to the next round. Twelve of the last 13 matches between Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund were won by the latter.

The Foals’ win at home earlier this season ended a 12-game losing streak versus the Yellow and Black. Rose’s team’s home record is poor at just 6W-5D-5L.
