Reason For Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips:
Gladbach hope to have made up for themselves after *those* humiliating 6-1 and 5-1 defeats on the road to Borussia Dortmund and at home to Bayer Leverkusen. Gladbach’s hostile performances have been enhancing week-by-week statistically, and coach Dieter Hecking ought to be sufficiently content with 12 points from their last 6 trips (W4 D1 L1). Borussia were supported by the arrival of Christoph Kramer last end of the week, who started out of the blue since mid-October, and their 4-2 win on the road to Hertha Berlin was arguably their best performance of the season so far – not the most noticeably bad situation to be in ahead of one of the hardest fixtures of the season!
Guests Bayern Munich have been just unstoppable since Jupp Heynckes ventured up to take over the rules for the fourth time at Bayern Munich. Heynckes won the treble with Bayern in 2013 (Bundesliga, DFB Pokal, and Champions League), and he appears to have brought that winning structure straight back out of them. Bayern have won all of the nine fixtures under their “new” coach (the DFB Pokal match against RB Leipzig on penalties), yielding only 4 goals over the same number, however the Bavarians weren’t at there best in the mid-week Champions League match against Anderlecht.
From a wagering point of view, Bayern Munich’s dominance over the Bundesliga now and then makes it hard to discover value, yet we feel backing under 3.5 goals makes for a fascinating choice. Bayern Munich’s offense has taken somewhat of a hit as far as wounds (see team news) – in fact, even with a completely fit squad Bayern have scored more than 3 goals only once under Heynckes – which doesn’t look good with the added strain of mid-week European rivalry. At the back, Bayern ought to be as solid as ever however, with Mats Hummels anticipated that would team up with summer-marking Niklas Süle – ideal conditions for a lower scoring affair.
On the statistics side of things, more than 3.5 goals have been scored in only 17% of Gladbach’s home matches and 33% of Bayern’s away matches this term. Gladbach themselves have discovered a respectable keep running of shape (W5 D2 L1 from last 8), yet it’d be hard to see them consistently scoring more than one against an extreme to break down Munich back line. Gladbach’s cautious record is also a glaring stain on the hosts’ season so far – the third most exceedingly terrible in the Bundesliga (21 goals surrendered) – and consequently we like the league leaders to secure this one. Our expectation: a 2-1 Bayern Munich win.
Bayern Munich won 1-0 at Borussia when the two sides last met in March. Under 3.5 goals have been scored in all yet one of the last 7 gatherings between them.
