Leaders Borrusia Dortmund will be looking to get back to winning ways as they host Borussia Monchengladbach at the Westfalenstadion on Friday night

Borussia Dortmund are sitting pretty at the top of the Bundesliga table as the winter break approaches.

The league leaders suffered a shock defeat last time out though, going down 2-1 to Fortuna Dusseldorf on Tuesday.

There's the opportunity to bounce back immediately as they face second place Borussia Monchengladbach. A home win is 13/25 (1.52) with 888Sport and is a selection that's paid out in seven of Dortmund's eight home league games this term.

Gladbach may be the closest challengers to the leaders but they're 9/2 (5.50) to win at the Westfalenstadion. Their away record has left plenty to be desired with just two wins in eight matches on the road in this competition. The draw is 17/5 (4.40) with 888Sport.

This match screams goals based on the statistics. Dortmund are the most potent team in the German top tier with 42 goals so far and the visitors have 35 to their name.

Backing this game to see four or more goals scored at 59/50 (2.08) is a logical call but there's a bigger price worth considering.

There's a clear trend towards late action when these teams step onto the field. Dortmund have netted 64 per cent of their Bundesliga goals in the second half of matches this term while the visitors have scored 71% of their league goals after the break.

With that in mind, backing both teams to score in the second 45 minutes at 33/20 (2.65) looks a solid selection for Friday's top of the table clash.

Usually goals at both ends is available at just 13/25 (1.52) but given how the scoring action usually occurs after the interval, getting a much better price about BTTS in the second half is an attractive option.

This wager has paid out in seven Dortmund games so far this season and given Gladbach's performances in the final third, it looks worth backing once more at 33/20 (2.65).
