Bayern Munich return to Bundesliga action following their Champions League win in midweek on Saturday. The Bavarian giants come up against Borussia Monchengladbach, who have gone two without a victory in the top-flight.
It has been a good week for Bayern Munich, as they took a giant step towards reaching the next round of the Champions League with a 1-0 success in Paris against PSG. However, the attention turns back to matters at home this weekend, as Bayern look to pull four points clear of Union Berlin at the top of the standings. Bayern has responded well after being questioned, and they have won each of their previous two matches in the German top-flight.
Their most recent domestic outing came at the Allianz Arena last weekend, as they secured a comfortable 3-0 win over Bochum. Thomas Muller netted the opening goal after 41 minutes, before Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry added further goals in the final half an hour of play. They will need to keep winning to ensure that there is no danger of a wide-open title race in the final months of the season.
Gladbach has been in disappointing recent form, as the cracks from earlier in the campaign have begun to re-emerge. They have lost three of their previous five matches in the Bundesliga, and have picked up just four points over the same period. However, a victory on Saturday could see them close to within six points of the top six.
They will need to be much more assured than they were in their previous fixture as they were well beaten by Hertha Berlin. Gladbach took the lead in that game through Nico Elvedi after 17 minutes, before going on to lose the fixture 4-1.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich Head to Head
Gladbach has a pretty decent recent record in this fixture, as they have gone three without defeat against Bayern. Their only win over that period was a 2-1 success at the Allianz Arena last term, while the previous meeting this season ended in a 1-1 draw.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Gladbach may boast a fairly healthy record in this fixture, but we still find it hard to see them claiming maximum points this weekend. Therefore, we expect Bayern to record a comfortable win on the road to re-establish their dominance at the top of the league standings.
