Borussia M’gladbach vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips

Borussia M’gladbach are hosting Bayern Munich in the Borussia park, Monchengladbach on the 14th of August 2021, Saturday at 00:00 IST. The League champions are opening their campaign against a team that has them on the mat in the recent past, Borussia M’gladbach. What a match we have on the cards for a league opener!!

Borussia M’gladbach Form and Team News

Borussia M’gladbach had endured a tough campaign last time around finishing outside the top seven teams which also puts them in a place where they cannot compete in any of Europe’s competitions. They are opening their campaign against multi-time champions Bayern Munchen. Borussia M’gladbach’s recent form has been better than the rivals, also add to the fact that they beat the champion side in the recent club-friendly game as well. They have won six games and lost just three games in the last ten they have played while one game ended in a draw. This team is one of those rare teams in the Bundesliga who have had the champions Bayern on the mat quite often and a win here will not be an upset of sorts but a statement from the side from M’gladbach.

Newly appointed manager Adolf Hutter has at present a 100 percent win record and that has also come when they beat Bayern Munich in a club-friendly last week, now that’s something for a start. He brings with him enough experience to take the team to newer heights. Players like Plea, Embolo and Nob along with Thuram and Zakaria could thrive under this managerial stint. M’gladbach has been stellar against the side from Bayern on multiple occasions in the recent past as well which not many teams can boast of. 

Bayern Munich Form and Team News

The League champions were clearly not at their best in the last leg of the last season, they were just not as dominant as we used to see from them, this also translated to them getting knocked out by PSG in the quarterfinals in the Champions League as well. The new season would bring with it newer challenges and Bayern would be desperate to rediscover their ‘not just win but crush the opponent’ style of play in the course of the season. They are playing against Borussia M’gladbach and they are also not in the best form going into this match, which could make up for a compelling watch to see how Bayern would bounce back.

Hansi Flick has left a legacy that only a few managers can match, Nagelsmann is coming into this team as the new manager and he holds a tremendous amount of reputation from his time at Leipzig. He is still to taste victory in this stint however and he will probably do it in the coming weeks with the Bayern side. The impact that Lewandowski had in this team was to be seen in the latter half of the last season when he was nursing an unfortunate injury, he is returning and we can hope that his side would be able to start winning a few matches.
