Borussia Dortmund has won four of the last five games against the other Borussia and this means they have a positive average all in all against VfL: the two clubs have faced each other 90 times so far in the Bundesliga, BVB has won 32 of those encounters, Gladbach has won 29 times.
Guaranteed goals: in the last 39 encounters between the two teams there has always been at least one goal. The last time there was a 0-0 draw was on the 17. April 1994 at the Bökelberg stadium.
Playing catch up: there is no other team that BVB has ended up beating more times after going 0-1 down than against Mönchengladbach (nine times, the same as against Frankfurt).
Masterful: BVB has take the lead 1-0 on 16 occasions in Mönchengladbach and has lost only one of these games (April 1991) - since then Dortmund has never lost against Mönchengladbach after taking the lead.
