Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Monchengladbach Odds
Bayern Keeping the Pace
When counting the matches before the COVID-19 pandemics, Bayern has 17 straight without a loss, and during that time, they’ve recorded 16 triumphs and one draw. Right now, the overall goal difference since coming back from pause is 19-5, in six matches, all of them victories.
In three events at home, they are 12-3, with the note that in both Bundesliga clashes, they scored five goals apiece. The lastest one was against Eintracht Frankfurts in the semis of the German Cup, and they’ve won that one with 2-1. Just to mention once more, Bayern trashed the same team three weeks ago at home with 5-2.
What could be problematic here is the fact that the Bavarians have a lot of problems with absent players before Saturday’s event. To be precise, with Robert Lewandowski’s and Thomas Muller’s suspensions. Both these guys won’t be able to play due to yellow card suspensions. Apart from them, Coutinho, Sule, Tolisso, and Lukas Mai are out.
Monch Fighting for the Champions League
With 56 points, Borussia is trailing the fourth spot along with Bayer Leverkusen and has three points fewer than Red Bull Leipzig. For them, this is the finale of the season, and they can’t come back home without at least one point.
Not being able to stay unbeaten in Munich would severely deteriorate their chances of reaching the group stage of the most prominent continental club competition. Therefore, Monch’s budget for the next season would be much thinner, and that is another motive for them in this event.
They lost the last match played against Freiburg with 1-0 and are playing with oscillations ever since the restart. The overall score during that span is two wins and losses with one draw.
Monch, too, has problems with injuries and absences. Embolo, Fabian Johnson, Strobl, and Zakaria are all out due to injuries. Alassane Plea is suspended due to a red card.
Head to Head
Borussia defeated Bayern in the first game of the season with 2-1. Perisic scored an opener for the guests in that one, but Bensebaini equalized. The win for Monch came in the 92nd minute with the same player netting from the penalty.
Bayern is the favorite here, but without Lewandowski, who is one of the top candidates to win the European Golden Booth award, we can question the hosts’ capabilities for scoring the usual amount of goals. However, Bayern to win and net twice is -200 and that is the safest bet of the day.
