Bavarian Giants are on the heels of Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen

Matchday 20 from the Bundesliga action has Bayern Munich going up against Borussia Monchengladbach. The Bavarian Giants are two points short of league leaders Bayer Leverkusen. Xabi Alonso’s side will also be taking on Darmstadt at the same time. Any slip-up will come as an aid for Thomas Tuchel’s men who are chasing them closely.

A challenging task awaits Gerardo Seoane’s Monchengladbach. They are sitting in 12th position after 19 games. Their tally of 21 points on the German first-tier league table is less than half of their upcoming opposition. But last time out, they pulled out a rabbit from the hat by drawing against Leverkusen. Seoane’s team are the only fourth side in the division who were able to not let Leverkusen collect all three points.

Kick-Off:

Saturday, 3 February 2024 at 2:30 PM UK (8:00 PM IST)

Location: Allianz Arena

Form

Bayern (in all competitions): W-W-L-W-D

Borussia Monchengladbach (in all competitions): D-L-W-L-D

Players to Watch

Harry Kane (Bayern Munich)

The former Tottenham Hotspur striker continues to be a man in form. Harry Kane is leading the 2023-24 Bundesliga scoring charts with 23 goals. The player also has 5 assists in those 19 league outings. And there are only a few players in the world that can boast more than a goal-per-game average at the moment. Kane scored in the last league game as well against Augsburg.

Moritz Nicolas (Borussia Monchengladbach)

The goalkeeping hands of Moritz Nicolas were the star of an excellent display against Bayer Leverkusen. The goalkeeper kept the attacking fraternity of Xabi Alonso’s side at bay for the entire 90 minutes. As many as 9 shots were stopped which were directed towards the back of the net. Nicolas will be eager to bring his “A” game against Bayern as well.

Match Facts

  • Bayern are currently running second in the league with just 2 points gap from the top
  • Monchengladbach sits in 12th position and has secured less than half of the points their upcoming opponents made in the same period (Bayern: 47 points, Monchengladbach: 21 points)
  • Last game Gerardo Seoane’s side did the unthinkable by earning a point against Leverkusen and also becoming just the fourth side to not let them win all three points

Injury & Team News

The hosts will be without Min-Jae Kim who is on Asian Cup duty with South Korea. Serge Gnabry, Konrad Laimer, Dayot Upamecano and Gabriel Marusic are all injured along with Joshua Kimmich. Talisman Kimmich has shoulder trouble.

Match Prediction for Bayern vs Monchengladbach

Although the Foals performed brilliantly against current league leaders, this big task comes in succession. It will be hard for a side that hasn’t had the best of forms to earn all three points away from home against a team vying for first place in the Bundesliga. Bayern should be able to ease in with all three points.

Prediction: Bayern 1-0 Borussia Monchengladbach
