Bayern Munich started their 2023/24 season on the wrong foot, losing to RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup. However, the league campaign has been a totally different story for Thomas Tuchel’s side, as they’ve recorded two wins while scoring seven goals and conceding just one. 

Borussia Monchengladbach, though, continues with the same set of problems as last season despite new manager Gerardo Seoane coming in over the summer. Gladbach have the worst defensive record in the league with seven conceded goals, recording one draw and one loss so far.

The matches between these two teams have been a joy to watch in recent seasons, but this time around, we expect a confident win for the Bavarians, which will be reflected in our Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich tips in the Bundesliga. The match kicks off on Saturday, September 2, 6:30 pm local time.

Harry Kane to score anytime 1.50

The last two matches have shown that Harry Kane will require no time for adaptation to Bundesliga. The English international has hit the ground running at Bayern, scoring three times in the two league matches so far and adding an assist on top. Bet365’s 1.50 odds on Harry Kane to score anytime during Saturday’s game look very promising.

As we’ve mentioned above, Borussia M’Gladbach have the worst defence in the league so we do not expect them to be able to keep Kane silent for 90 minutes. Besides Harry’s own qualities, the Bavarians have a long list of players – Alphonso Davies, Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry to name a few – who can dribble past several rivals and make a pass to an open net. Or Gladbach’s sloppiness at the back may result in a penalty kick, and we know Kane has mastered that skill long ago. 

To score in both halves – Bayern Munich

Both Bayern Munich and Borussia Monchengladbach have played four halves of football in the 2023/24 Bundesliga. The Bavarians scored in all four, and Gladbach conceded in all four. Bet365 offers 1.61 odds on Bayern scoring in both halves at Borussia-Park, and we can definitely see it happen.

Borussia have massive problems in defence, mainly their lack of focus during set-pieces and poor work in transitions. The only way to solve these issues is to park the bus, but Seonae isn’t particularly known for his defensive approach as he tried to tit for tat against Bayer Leverkusen which resulted in a 3-0 loss at home. While a more cautious approach from Borussia M’Gladbach this Saturday is not excluded, you can’t build a proper defensive block in one week, and the Bavarians certainly have the quality to break down any improvised barrier.

To win to nil – Bayern Munich

As wild as it may sound, the last time Bayern Munich won against Borussia Monchengladbach was way back in May of 2021. Five official games have followed since then, with Borussia M’Gladbach winning three times and two other matches ending in draws. But we have a different Borussia now. Yann Sommer was a key player in those games but he is long gone. Other team leaders such as Jonas Hofmann, Lars Stindl and Marcus Thuram left during the summer transfer market too.

Thus, we fully expect the Bavarians to get their revenge against Gladbach. However, we would go one step further and say that Tuchel’s men will win this game to nil. While this part of our Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich tips is riskier, Bet365’s 3.40 odds on this event look too good to at least not consider it.

Nevertheless, please remember to always gamble responsibly. Our Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich tips are a mere suggestion, not a call to action, so take them with a pinch of salt.
