Bundesliga matchday 28 - Bayern, Wolfsburg, Gladbach
Posted 10. april 2015
With just seven games of the 2014/15 Bundesliga season remaining, teams at both ends of the table are scrapping for points in an effort to meet their season's objectives. For Borussia Mönchengladbach, Saturday’s Matchday 28 fixture could be their coming-of-age occasion when they take on namesakes Borussia Dortmund. However, after what has been a dismal season for Jürgen Klopp’s team, they head into the home straight in tenth place, clinging to an outside chance of playing in the Europa League next term. The other Borussia, meanwhile, keep getting better and better. That much was evident in the Foals’ recent eye-catching 2-0 away win over Bayern on Matchday 26, which they followed up with a thumping 4-1 triumph over TSG 1899 Hoffenheim last weekend to stay in third. The fact that the last time Gladbach was ahead of Dortmund prior to the duo meeting in a Rückrunde fixture was 26 years ago (on 18 March 1989), puts into context just how extraordinary the present state of affairs is.
