FC Ingolstadt 04 v Borussia Dortmund
After thrashing Gladbach in some style last Saturday, Dortmund were then nearly embarrassed by Odd in a Europa League qualifier. Having been 3-0 down, they did pull through 4-3 but it showed the Thomas Tuchel masterplan is still under construction.
Ingolstadt were slick on debut at Tuchel's former club Mainz. They merited their 1-0 victory there and whilst they have the ability to match Dortmund, the visitors should be able to win again here at 1.45.
Borussia Mönchengladbach v FSV Mainz 05
Whilst Mainz lost key players over the summer, their display against Ingolstadt didn't offer much hope ahead of travelling to Gladbach. What's more, Martin Schmidt's side are facing a Gladbach team coming off the back of their worst defeat in over a year.
Defensively, captain Martin Stranzl is still missing and even if Dortmund exposed some flaws at the back, a win for a revved up Gladbach makes sense at 1.70.
