Bundesliga's top squads will hash it out during Matchday 13's monumental bout highlighting the weekend's schedule.

Bayern Munich, who sports a first-place lead with 10 wins and 32 points, will look to gain ground on second-place Borussia Dortmund, who lingers closely behind with 28 points. While Dortmund can't surpass Munich with a victory, they would pull up right behind them.

Not only do title aspirations hang in the balance, there's bad blood between the two titans after Mario Gotze defected from Dortmund to Munich last April. The 21-year-old midfielder has netted just one goal in his new locale, but he now must return to his old stomping grounds to face fans still seething over his departure.

That, however, is just one of 10 matches on the slate. The table is sure to alter a bit throughout the weekend, so here's a look at how each squad stacks up.

Monchengladbach will remain in fourth place after gaining a 2-0 victory over VfB Stuttgart. Depending on the Bayern Munich-Borussia Dortmund outcome, they'll either start Week 14 seven points out of first or three points behind third (or perhaps second if Bayer Leverkusen also loses). 

Monchengladbach grabbed their fourth straight Bundesliga victory with goals from Rafael Araujo and Oscar Wendt on opposite sides of the half. Araujo delivered his score in the 37th minute, while Wendt chimed in with an insurance goal at minute No. 73.

During their winning streak, Gladbach has outscored their opponents by a combined nine goals, winning each match by multiple scores. Stuttgart, on the other hand, slips to eighth place and will likely dip further before the weekend concludes.

Stuttgart has now won two of their last seven Bundesliga matches as they continue to trip down the table. They have not picked up a home victory since Sept. 1.
