8th January 2021 – 20:30, Borussia-Park, Monchengladbach
Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich are going to open the action in Bundesliga’s 15th round with a Friday evening clash. The home side is looking forward to challenging the top four spots, while the visitors want to remain as the leaders.
Match Preview & Team News
December was pretty tough for the hosts as they entered a winless streak that lasted for six games. Although they managed to secure a place in the Champions League knockout stage, they lost the last two games in the group. A poor run in the Bundesliga saw them declining to the 7th spot, being four points behind the top four. Marco Rose’s side managed to beat Elversberg in the DFB Pokal pretty easily while celebrating in Bielefeld against Arminia in the German top flight. Lars Stindl and the lads are doing well in the final third, while the home side’s defending needs to be a bit tighter. Although Borussia Monchengladbach lost just once at the home ground, they booked too many draws and celebrated only twice at their pitch. Marcus Thuram will be sidelined for this clash due to the suspension after being booked against Hoffenheim.
After two consecutive draws, Bayern Munich managed to tie three victories and take over the top spot in front of RB Leipzig. They have a two-point advantage and are looking forward to keeping that position. However, Hans-Dieter Flick’s side has troubles in the back as they failed to keep the clean sheet nine times in a row in Bundesliga. On the other hand, Robert Lewandowski and the lads are lethal for the oppositions’ goalkeepers as they netted 44 goals so far. The visitors celebrated a vital win away to Bayer Leverkusen before Christmas, thanks to a stoppage-time goal. It seemed the defending champions would lose against Mainz at home in the latest round, but after trailing 2:0, they scored five times in the second half. Bayern Munich tied five games without losing when playing away from home, and they want to extend that streak.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Although Borussia Monchengladbach is a tricky opponent, Bayern Munich is considered a favorite in this one. We believe they will meet the expectations and get back home with all three points.
Goals Market Prediction
Their head to head clashes have been pretty exciting lately, and this one shouldn’t be much different. Since the visitors are not so good when defending their net, we should see goals on both sides in this game.
