Prediction and odds for the game: Bayern Munich (1/3) v Monchengladbach (13/2)
We are backing both teams to score at odds of 4/7
When: Saturday, 13th June 2020, Kick-off 17:30
Where: The Allianz Arena
On Saturday evening, Bayern Munich host Monchengladbach at the Allianz Arena, in what has the potential to be one of the most entertaining games of the Bundesliga weekend.
The reigning champions look to be cruising to their eighth straight Bundesliga title. The Bavarians are seven points clear of second-place Dortmund and currently look unstoppable with just four league games left this season.
A 4-2 win at Bayer Leverkusen means that Hansi Flick’s team goes into this clash on the back of nine straight league wins. Maybe even more impressive is the fact that Bayern have scored at least twice in eight of those nine straight wins. That stat is unsurprising as the home side are the top scorers in the Bundesliga this season.
As is usually the case, the reigning champions have been strong on home soil of late, as they are unbeaten in eight games, following seven wins. Flick’s team has also scored at least twice in all seven of those recent victories on home soil.
Rather unusually for Bayern, they have a poor recent record against Monchengladbach, having lost two of the last three meetings with the Foals in all competitions.
The Foals hopes of qualifying for the Champions League are in doubt after a mixed return to action after the break. Marco Rose’s team are fourth place in the Bundesliga table but are only ahead of fifth-place Bayer Leverkusen courtesy of superior goal difference. They could have done without this game at this point in the season.
A 1-0 defeat against Freiburg last time out in the German top-flight means that the visitors have won just once in their last four league outings. It was also a rare low-scoring game for Gladbach in the top-flight, as six of their previous eight games have produced under 2.5 goals.
Monchengladbach have endured mixed fortunes on their travels of late in the Bundesliga. A record of three wins in their last ten away games in the German top-flight does not seem like a record a top-four challenger, more like a team fighting off relegation.
Although Gladbach have failed to score in their last two away games in the Bundesliga, they had scored at least twice in their previous matches on the road.
Bayern Munich are a winning machine and we believe they continue their winning league run in this clash. Considering their recent form, their still decent value for a home win. We are also backing both teams to score, as both have the potential to find the net, despite the Foals recent struggles in front of goal on their travels.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 1/3 and/or both teams to score at odds of 4/7. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
