Bayern Munich vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Date: Saturday, 6 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
The alarm bells are ringing around Allianz Arena as Bayern Munich come into Saturday’s league tie with Borussia Monchengladbach winless in three straight games in all competitions. It’s a thread local fans don’t remember to have seen in a while and the new head coach Niko Kovac already sees his job on the line after just six rounds of the Bundesliga campaign.
The most recent of failures happened on Tuesday evening when the Bavarian giant failed to see off Ajax at home in the second round of the Champions League. They got off to a dream start when Mats Hummels’ header found the back of the net early on, but Dutch runners-up found the way to claw their way back into the contest as it finished 1-1.
Such slip-up followed back-to-back Bundesliga failures (1-1 draw to Augsburg and 2-0 loss to Hertha BSC). Bayern thus come into this as the second-placed team.
Bayern Munich vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Head-to-head
- Bayern were obviously the dominant force in the history of head to head matches against the Foals.
- The Bavarians won 37, drew 11 and lost just 3 of 51 home outings against Borussia Monchengladbach.
- Bayern won three of last four meetings with the Foals.
Bayern Munich vs Borussia Monchengladbach: Prediction
The hosts have an imperative as they dropped down to second place after the unexpected loss in the capital last Friday. However, seeing of Borussia M’Gladbach will be anything but an easy task for Niko Kovac and his men given the visitors have been enjoying a fine form recently.
The Foals sit fourth, just two points shy of Bayern in second place. They bagged five goals in last two league games against Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg and don’t represent a naïve opposition at all with a strong firepower on display in the final third.
