Borussia Dortmund will travel to Borussia Mönchengladbach on the final day of the 2018/19 Bundesliga season having beaten the Foals in each of their previous seven meetings. Here are the match facts.
The match facts
- The two Borussias tend to face off on the final day every 10 years: Dortmund won 2-0 in Mönchengladbach in 1999 (the Foals were relegated, while the Black & Yellows qualified for the Champions League), while their meeting at the BORUSSIA-PARK in 2009 ended 1-1 (BVB missed out on a Europa League place).
- For the first time in the history of the Bundesliga, one of these two teams has beaten the other seven times in a row. Borussia Dortmund have won every game since the start of the 2015/16 season. That's their longest ongoing winning run against any top-flight side.
- The Black & Yellows have scored 23 goals − an average of over three per game − across those seven matches. None of the last 43 meetings between them have ended goalless. The last 0-0 draw came at Bökelberg on 17 April 1994.
- BVB have taken points after being 1-0 down to Mönchengladbach 22 times – highest figure in the Bundesliga. On nine occasions, they even won (same against Frankfurt).
- Marco Reus has scored seven goals for BVB against Gladbach, assisting a further five. He has had a hand in 10 goals the last six times he has faced his former club.
Facts on Borussia Mönchengladbach
- Gladbach have only won one of their past four games (a 4-0 victory in Nuremberg on Matchday 33).
- However, the Foals have only failed to find the net in one of their last 10 matches.
- Only two teams have a better defensive record than Mönchengladbach (40 goals conceded).
- Only Schalke have won more penalties (nine) than Gladbach (seven).
- Having set a new club record of 12 consecutive home wins − a run that started last season − Mönchengladbach are winless in their last seven home games. The last time they endured such a winless streak on home turf came over eight years ago under Michael Frontzeck.
