Since summer 2014, Gladbach has scored 20 points against Bayern, and has even had a positive balance during this time (6 wins, 2 draws, 5 bankruptcies) – as the only Bundesliga team! For comparison: Hoffenheim as the second best team had 13 points. Dortmund have only scored seven points against Bayern since the 2014/15 season …
Saturday (6.30 p.m., Sky) Borussia is planning the 7th prank in Munich!
Only with a win at the (almost) champion can the team of coach Marco Rose (44) hope to catch Leverkusen in 6th place (currently four points ahead) and play in the Europa League next season.
BILD names the four trump cards for the next Bayern coup!
► Lars Stindl (32): The captain celebrates a lightning comeback after his hamstring torn. Stindl wants to continue his great record in the Borussia jersey – he won five of his 9 games and only lost three times. At 3-2 in January, he prepared two goals.
► Jonas Hofmann (28): Was the match winner in the first leg, turned the early 0-2 deficit with his brace to 2-2 almost single-handedly. After a creative break against Bielefeld, Hofmann is now in top shape again – and ready for Bavaria.
► Marcus Thuram (23): The French can hardly be stopped at the moment. Since he has been used by Rose as a central striker, he has collected seven goals (three goals, four assists) in the last five games – as many as in his 21 appearances before on the wings.
► Florian Neuhaus (24): For the native of Bavaria, the game in Munich is almost a home game. And like in the first leg (where he scored the 3-2 winner) he wants to show the record champions again why he is their favorite candidate. From 2022 at the latest, games in the Allianz Arena will actually be home games for Neuhaus.
Bavaria is planning the early championship celebration on Saturday – but they want to postpone the four Gladbach trumps for a week …
