Borussia Moenchengladbach vs Bayern Munich Match Prediction
Bayern Munich will look to extend their lead at the top of the Bundesliga table when they travel to the Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK to take on Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday afternoon. Borussia Moenchengladbach were beaten 2-1 on the road at Hamburger SV last weekend, despite having had an early lead following Andreas Christensen’s goal. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich won 3-0 at home over Eintracht Frankfurt thanks to a brace from Robert Lewandowski and another goal from Douglas Costa. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.
Betting Predictions and Tips
Bayern Munich had a full week to calmly prepare for this game, while Borussia Moenchengladbach had just two days to recover following their disappointing elimination from the Europa League. I’m backing Bayern Munich to grab all three points, but I’m also expecting them to keep a clean sheet as Borussia Moenchengladbach have struggled in front of goal throughout this Bundesliga campaign.
Borussia Moenchengladbach Preview
Borussia Moenchengladbach were on a four-game winning streak across all competitions between the middle of February to the beginning of March, but they have failed to win a single match since then. M’Gladbach are currently on a three-game winless streak across all competitions, including a 2-1 defeat at Hamburger SV last time out in the Bundesliga. They were unlucky not to go through in the Europa League after two consecutive draws against Schalke 04. They managed a 1-1 stalemate on the road at Schalke in the first leg, but threw away a 2-0 goal lead to succumb to a 2-2 draw on Thursday, and were eliminated due to the away goal rule. Regarding their Bundesliga campaign, Borussia Moenchengladbach currently stand in 9th spot in the standings with 32 points to their name after 24 rounds, just three points of the top six. M’Gladbach’s recent home form has been a complete mixed bag with five defeats, four wins and one draw in their last ten home fixtures across all competitions. The good news is that Borussia Moenchengladbach are undefeated in their last two home meetings with Bayern Munich in all competitions, conceding just one goal in the process.
Bayern Munich Preview
Bayern Munich are one of the most in-form teams in Europe at the moment, as they are currently on a 21-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning 18 in the process. They recently thrashed Arsenal 10-2 on aggregate in their Champions League round of 16 tie and followed this up with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over Eintracht Frankfurt last time out in the Bundesliga. The Bavarian giants find themselves on top of the Bundesliga table with 59 points to their name after 24 rounds, already ten points clear off the second-placed RB Leipzig. Bayern Munich looked impeccable at both ends of the field throughout this Bundesliga campaign, scoring 60 goals and conceding just 13 in their 24 league outings. Robert Lewandowski is Bayern Munich’s top scorer with 21 goals under his belt, while Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery have bagged 11 goals and 13 assists between them. On the road, Bayern have only lost one of their twelve league trips this season, having conceded just nine goals in the process. Head-to-head, Bayern are undefeated in their last two meetings with Borussia Moenchengladbach, including a 2-0 home win in the reverse fixture.
