Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich predictions and betting tips for this Saturday evening Bundesliga match on March 2nd with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
There’s a hugely important Bundesliga clash on Saturday night which could potentially help decide the destination of the title this season. Bayern have started to motor in recent weeks, and they are now within spitting distance of the early pacesetters, but they face a tough trip to their bogey side – Monchengladbach. The Foals inflicted a 3-0 defeat on Bayern when they met earlier in the season, but can they repeat that trick in the late kick-off? See our Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich predictions below.
For long periods of this season, Monchengladbach were dark horses for the title, but their recent form has seen them drop off the pace, and they come into this game eight points adrift of their visitors. The Foals always provide Bayern with a stern test, and they won’t make it easy for Niko Kovac’s side once again here. They battered them 3-0 earlier in the campaign, and they will know the importance of taking something from this encounter. Having said that, I’m worried about Dieter Hecking’s side. They’ve take just one point from a possible nine, and they’ve fallen to consecutive 3-0 hammerings at home. Hertha and Wolfsburg have both dished out batterings in recent weeks, and even though Hecking thought his side played well, they weren’t able to even get on the score-sheet in either of those games.
Bayern have improved massively, and they’ve won four of their last five away trips. That bodes well for the Champions and with Dortmund facing out-of-form Augsburg on Friday night, they’ll know that they need to pick up three points here. Ordinarily, I would be looking for an angle to keep Monchengladbach onside, but they have really struggled in 2019, and Bayern to Win and Over 1.5 Match Goals looks the best way of extracting some value from this tie. It is the first of our Bundesliga Betting Tips for Saturday evening.
Monchengladbach’s troubles in front of goal have been well-documented, but they still possess a decent strikeforce, and Bayern haven’t been keeping too many clean sheets on their travels. The hosts have scored in nine of their eleven home matches this campaign, and do tend to find the net against their rivals. BTTS/Overs would have landed in each of Bayern’s last three away games, and it looks the best bet in this one. It would also have paid out in two of the last three meetings between the sides. It is the second of our Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich predictions for Saturday evening.
With Kingsley Coman and Corentin Tolisso absent for Bayern, there could be opportunities for one or two fringe players to get some minutes under their belt here. Leon Goretzka has been playing well this season, and he could be given a place in the starting XI here. He’s netted three times in as many away games for Bayern, and he provides some value in this market. The visitors are also quite handy at the back, and a number of defensive players have got on the scoresheet recently, but I’m sticking with the talented Goretzka. He is the third of our Bundesliga predictions.
Bayern are very short odds to collect three points in this game and can be backed at around 4/7. This is due to their recent good form, and Gladbach’s recent poor performances at home. However, it might not be as easy as the odds suggest. Gladbach are a bit of a bogey team for Bayern, and they can backed at 19/4 whereas the draw is priced at 7/2.
The traders are expecting plenty of goals in this match, and Over 2.5 Goals can be backed at 8/15. It’s also a tempting 13/10 for Over 3.5 Goals. It was 3-0 earlier in the campaign and it’s 13/10 for 2-3 Goals Exactly.
Robert Lewandowski is Bayern’s top scorer with 13 goals this season and he is understandably the 21/10 favourite in the first goalscorer market. He is followed by Thomas Muller, who is priced at 5/1. Serge Gnabry has been a thorn in the side of the opposition in recent months, and the former Arsenal man is 15/2 to break the deadlock.
