Bayern Munich v Borussia Monchengladbach Predictions and Preview
Bayern came out on top in a six-goal thriller with Leverkusen in the previous gameweek. The result saw the Bavarians maintain their seven-point lead at the top of the standings and a win against Gladbach, coupled with Dortmund losing to Dusseldorf, will ensure a 29th league title.
Hansi Flick has a squad brimming with talent and the Bayern hierarchy are assembling one of the best young squads in Europe with Joshua Kimmich, Alphonso Davies, Serge Gnabry and Lucas Hernandez all set to spend their best years with Germany’s leading club.
Leroy Sane is expected to finally join the ranks once the domestic term ends in England and Munich will take some stopping both domestically and on the continent over the next three or four seasons.

|Bayern Munich to win 2-1||15/2||Offer|
Robert Lewandowski has 45 goals and five assists from just 38 appearances in all competitions and few would bet against the lethal Pole breaking the half-century mark, particularly with up to six Champions League ties remaining for Munich. Lewandowski is 10/3 to open proceedings while the hosts are 1/3 to march one step closer to championship glory.
Travelling party Gladbach will hope to bounce back after losing 1-0 to Freiburg, but will have to do so without one of their star players. Alassane Plea was dismissed with 20 minutes left on the clock and Marcus Thuram is poised to move from a wide left role to spearhead the side. The young Frenchman has enjoyed a fine debut year at the club and is 13/5 to register anytime. Die Fohlen are 13/2 to do the double and the draw is 9/2.
One to watch for Bayern Munich: Leon Goretzka scored in the outing with Leverkusen and averages one in four for the campaign. The midfielder is 7/1 to bag last.
One to watch for Borussia Monchengladbach: Compatriot Lars Stindl is 13/1 in the same market and there will be added onus on the skipper in the absence of Plea.
Long shot: Munich have been faultless since taking to the field against Union Berlin in mid-May, but Gladbach know they can beat Flick’s side. The visitors are were drilled defensively and could also be boosted by the return of attacker Breel Embolo who has been missed while out with injury. A repeat of the famous 2-1 scoreline in December is 25/1.
