This season, Bayern are surprisingly not in first place with a comfortable advantage over their rivals, having passed ahead of the brilliant Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen. Despite the fact that statistically Bayern are still one of the best teams in the table this season, the game that Thomas Tuchel puts on is not always clear to the players. The Munich team alternates confident victories with vague defeats. Mönchengladbach has fallen below the expected level this year and is stuck in 12th place, having a slim chance of getting into European competitions next season. Despite this, the team has always been one of the most uncomfortable opponents for Bayern in recent seasons.

Bayern Munich vs. Borussia M'gladbach Preview 

Bayern Munich Preview

Tuchel's appointment, even after almost a year, raises more questions than answers. Bayern no longer looks like an invincible pressing machine, conceding points in non-obvious situations. So, for example, the last home match ended in defeat against Werder (0-1), which led to another barrage of criticism of the team and the head coach. Bayern are not very successful in defence, conceding a lot of unnecessary goals and earning penalties out of the blue, while in attack the team often looks toothless, somewhat reminiscent of Chelsea this season. Despite Kane's goalscoring qualities (22 goals), there are still many questions for Munich and it is still unclear what will happen to the team by the end of the season.

Borussia M'gladbach Preview

Borussia Mönchengladbach are also not too impressive this season. The team is stuck in the middle of the table (12th place) and lags behind the European Cup zone by as much as 10 points. Moreover, Mönchengladbach has not been able to win two rounds in a row, but at the same time, the Foals are playing well with teams from the top of the table, having played 0-0 with Leverkusen and beaten the third-placed Stuttgart (3-1). In general, it is noticeable that this season Gerardo Seoane's team is more comfortable in keeping a lower profile, using the mistakes of rivals, than insisting on their game. In addition, the team has historically played well with Bayern, having won 3 in the last 5 meetings.

Betting Tips for Bayern Munich vs. Borussia M'gladbach

Both Teams to Score and Bayern Win

The teams have been exchanging goals with each other for 4 meetings in a row, moreover, given the questions to Bayern in defence and the good form of Alassane Plea, the main scorer of Mönchengladbach (7 goals), chances will arise for both sides. At the same time, this season the guests contrast too much with the level of play of previous seasons, so they still can't count on points against a more motivated and skilled Bayern. William Hill evaluates this Bayern Munich vs. Borussia M'gladbach prediction with odds of 2.22.

Total Under 4

It is well known that the Bundesliga is one of the most goal-scoring championships, and Bayern is the main supplier of goals. Despite this, Bayern have scored more than three goals in only two matches in the last 8 rounds of the Bundesliga. Moreover, Bayern is still in the position of catching up, and given the loss of points by Bayer in the last round, Munich simply needs to score points without engaging into a shootout with an opponent. Bayern Munich vs. Borussia M'gladbach odds for this outcome are 1.84 by Parimatch.

First to Score - M’gladbach

Given Bayern's instability in defence and general questions about Tuchel's game-building, almost all of the team's opponents have moments in the first half. Moreover, in personal confrontations, Mönchengladbach scored first in 4 of the last 5 matches. This Bayern Munich vs. Borussia M'gladbach tip is evaluated with odds of 4.55 by William Hill
