BVB take on Borussia Monchengladbach in this Matchday 6 encounter in confident mood thanks to their solid unbeaten start to the campaign which has seen them win four and draw one of their opening five fixtures. Peter Bosz's side followed up last weekend's 5-0 thumping of Koln with a facile 3-0 victory over Hamburg in midweek to stay top of the pile, where they sit one point above title rivals Bayern Munich.
Eight goals in two outings suggest that Dortmund have put their disappointing 3-1 defeat to Tottenham at Wembley in the UEFA Champions League earlier this month well and truly behind them. And not only are the Black and Yellows scoring for fun this term, they are demonstrating an impressive defensive solidity to boot.
Bosz became the first manager in Bundesliga history to lead his side to a clean sheet in his first five league games thanks to Hamburg's fruitless efforts on Wednesday night. The Dutchman still felt his side could have performed better however.
"It was not an easy game. HSV applied a lot of pressure," he told the club's official website. "It was difficult in the first half in particular, but even then we should have scored two or three goals. We played too many long balls. All in all, though, it was a very good performance from us and we deserved to win in the end."
BVB are averaging nearly three goals per game, with 13 on the board so far thanks to victories over Wolfsburg, Hertha Berlin, Cologne and Hamburg, in addition to their goalless stalemate with Freiburg.
Borussia Monchengladbach will be no easy target, however, despite an unpredictable spell of form early in the campaign. They held last season's runners up RB Leipzig (2-2) last weekend and further boosted confidence with a 2-0 win over Stuttgart on Tuesday night.
That said, Dortmund boast a four-match winning streak in their head-to-head encounters against Monchengladbach, with two very convincing wins on home turf (4-1 in December 2016 and 4-0 in August 2015) seen in the process. There have been three or more goals in all of their last five matchups, which bodes well for a thrilling Saturday evening contest.
