Top four contenders Borussia Dortmund look to keep up with victorious Borussia Monchengladbach when it meets relegation-threatened Paderborn as Week 29 in the Bundesliga hits Sunday.

Gladbach got two goals from Marcus Thuram and one goal and two assists from Alassane Plea in a 4-1 win over Union Berlin to start the day.

Dortmund also needs a win to keep pace with presumed champions Bayern Munich, which has a 10-point lead entering Sunday.
