An intriguing Rhineland derby takes place in the Bundesliga on Saturday as Borussia Monchengladbach play host to local rivals Cologne at Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK.

Hosts Monchengladbach comes into this fixture in decent form, taking 10 points from a possible 12 as they look to climb the Bundesliga following a largely disappointing campaign that sees them currently sit 11th in the division. 

6 points behind rivals Cologne, BMG have been an entertaining watch for goal backers this season however with the hosts seeing BTTS in 10 of 14 home matches this season including 6 of the last 7. Of those 14 matches, 10 saw over 2.5 goals scored including 8 of the last 10. 

Indeed, in those last 10 home matches, an average of 3.7 goals per game were scored and a similar outcome is expected this weekend with this fixture seeing BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in 7 of the last 9 meetings between these sides including each of their 4 most recent duals.

While Cologne have been somewhat inconsistent lately, their form in the BTTS market is also strong with 7 of their last 9 on the road seeing that outcome and another high-scoring action-packed derby seems likely this Saturday evening with BMG struggling for clean sheets on their own patch this season.

Based on recent form, BMG may have the edge in this contest however the hosts cannot be trusted to claim the points having failed to win 9 of their last 15 home league matches and considering both sides lack of clean sheets in recent weeks, BTTS looks a solid choice here in what is usually an exciting if unpredictable derby fixture.
