Borussia-Park, Mönchengladbach, Germany.
Saturday 7th December.
Kick-off: 15:30 (CET).
This weekend’s most important match sees Borussia Mönchengladbach host Bayern Munich in a crucial game for the Bundesliga title.
Interim Bayern manager Hans-Dieter Flick suffered his first loss in charge of the team with a 1-2 defeat at home to Bayer Leverkusen. Is this a blip or has his honeymoon period finished? You can get odds of 1.54 for them to bounce back at the Borussia Park stadium.
Setting the pace
Borussia Mönchengladbach have been in fine form this season, and they sit top of the Bundesliga after 13 games with 28 points. Will they be the team to finally end Bayern’s stranglehold on the Bundesliga? STS are offering odds of 26.00 for them to be the first team other than Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga since 2012.
Who to watch?
Robert Lewandowski – The Polish hitman continues to be a shining star in what has been a poor start to the season for Bayern Munich. Keeping him quiet will be Borussia’s biggest task.
Marcus Thuram – Son of French legend Lillian, he has made a bright start to the season with six goals and five assists. Can he be the difference between the two sides?
The H2H between the two is rather strange. Both teams got comfortable away victories against the other last season. Bayern Munich won 1-5 at Borussia park while Mönchengladbach defeated Munich 0-3 at the Allianz. If you think the Bavarians will score at least another five goals in this game, STS currently have odds of 7.70. Borussia beat Bayern 0-3 at the Allianz (last year), so they certainly know they are capable of upsetting the Bavarians once again and pulling further ahead in the league. Can they do it again?
Injuries and suspensions
Mönchengladbach - Matthias Ginter.
Bayern Munich - Niklas Süle and Lucas Hernández.
In a difficult match to predict, our betting tip is for Borussia Mönchengladbach to win at 5.50.
