Facts and stats ahead of #BVBBMG

Everything to know ahead of Saturday’s Bundesliga opener against Borussia Dortmund (18:30 CEST).

Spectators:

  • Germany’s 16 states have agreed to a uniform set of rules to govern the return of fans to stadiums. Clubs will be permitted to open their stadiums at a maximum of 20 percent of the seated capacity. There will be around 10,000 fans permitted to attend Saturday’s match at Dortmund’s Signal-Iduna Park.
  • As per the DFL, there will be no standing seats allowed at matches until at least the end of October. There will also be no tickets for away fans.

Head-to-head record:

  • The two sides will meet for the 97th time in the Bundesliga. Dortmund have won 39 of these matches, with 29 ending in favour of the Foals. This fixture has finished in a draw on 28 occasions.
  • Gladbach have lost all of their last 10 Bundesliga games against Dortmund. Gladbach’s last win in this fixture dates back to 11th April 2015 (3-1 at home), when Lucien Favre was still in charge of the Foals. Gladbach do not have a longer ongoing winless run against any other side.
  • None of the last 49 meetings between the sides have ended goalless. The last 0-0 draw in this fixture came on April 1994 in Mönchengladbach.
  • Dortmund and Gladbach have faced each other just twice before on the opening day. Both matches took place in Dortmund, with the Foals winning 3-1 in 1968 and Dortmund winning 4-0 in 2015.

Statistics – provided by UNIBET:

  • Dortmund only suffered their first home defeat on matchday 28 last season. They picked up 36 points from 17 home games last term (W11, D3, L3), and finished in third in the home form table. Gladbach picked up 27 of their 65 points last season away from home.
  • Only two sides conceded fewer goals last season than Gladbach. Bayern (30) were the only side to allow fewer clear-cut chances in 2019/20 than Gladbach (35).
  • Legendary coach Hennes Weisweiler set several club records during his time in charge (340 Bundesliga games, 169 wins – winning percentage of 50%). In his debut season as head coach, Marco Rose bettered Weisweiler’s winning percentage, having won 59% of his matches in charge of the Foals so far.
  • Lucien Favre has picked up 168 points in 68 Bundesliga games at Dortmund over the last two seasons. BVB average 2.13 points per game and have won 65% of their Bundesliga matches under Favre – the best average of any BVB coach in their Bundesliga history.
