Bayern Munich vs Borussia Monchengladbach: MPL Preview, Predictions and Fantasy team

Bayern Munich will try to maintain their perfect record as they are scheduled to host Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Bayern have been in a rampaging mood as the reigning champions have slotted in 20 goals past their opponents including the Super Cup win over RB Leipzig.

Sadio Mane has proved to be a perfect replacement for Robert Lewandowski as the former Liverpool forward has already netted four goals in four matches in his Bayern career so far.

Matthijs de Ligt also scored his first Bayern goal as the Bavarians blanked VfL Bochum 7-0 to cement their place at the top of the German top tier.

Monchengladbach’s status as the bogey team for Bayern could make the task difficult as their backline faced some pressure despite dominating on the attacking fronts. Manuel Neuer had to be quite sharp in the goal and Julian Nagelsmann needs to plug the hole as soon as possible.

Mane’s addition has allowed Nagelsmann to experiment with a dimension and it has been successful so far.

Bayern’s finishing efficiency has been brilliant and they are far ahead in terms of attacking capabilities than the other German sides.

Monchengladbach have been the second best team in the Bundesliga with two wins and one draw under his belt. They were one of the two teams to register a victory at the Allianz Arena and Daniel Farke would love to repeat the feat this time.

Monchengladbach captain Lars Stindl is yet to start a game and he might have to sit on the bench as the manager will not tinker with his lineup unless he feels the urge.

Jonas Hoffman and Alassane Plea have been sharing the attacking responsibility and Stindl will have to wait for his turn. They have failed to convert most of the chances and cannot afford to slip up against the league leaders.

Monchengladbach did waste several chances against Hoffenheim and also went on to miss a penalty and this particular area needs some sharpening.

Since 2011, they have been the team to beat against Bayern as their record against the German champions has been the best and they would be riding on that hoping for a miraculous evening on Saturday.
