Borussia M’gladbach is welcoming Bayern Munich to Borussia-Park in a Friday derby in round 15 in the German Bundesliga.
Borussia is slowly waking up, and they have won their last 2 games after a bad 6-game streak. During their last 2 games, Borussia has scored 6 goals while not conceding any goals. With 21 points, 25 scored goals, and 22 conceded goals, Borussia M’gladbach is now in 7th place, and they will need to play a lot better soccer if they want to reach the Champions League spot. Borussia was playing against Arminia on the road in their last game, and they were the better team with 58% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 14 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. Despite all the chances, Borussia was struggling with scoring goals, but they were able to score one which was enough for a 0-1 win. Stindl is the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 8 goals, while Hofmann added 2 goals and 5 assists. There are no injured for Borussia M’gladbach but Thuram is suspended because of the red card. The good news for Borussia is that even if they don’t end up in the Champions League spot this season, they are still playing in that competition this season.
Bayern has won their last 3 games in a row while winning 4 of their last 5 games. During their 3-game winning streak, Bayern has scored 9 goals while conceding 4 goals, and they are the best offensive team in Bundesliga with a massive 44 scored goals so far. Bayern’s defense isn’t great, but it’s decent with 21 conceded goals. With 33 points, Bayern is at the top of the table. In their most recent Bundesliga match, Bayern was hosting Mainz, and they were the dominant team with 73% of ball possession, 12 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 7 big chances created, and a high 90% of accurate passes. Shockingly, Bayern was losing 0-2 at halftime, but the second half was just fantastic for Bayern. With 5 scored goals in the second half, Bayern has won this match 5-2. Sometimes I think Bayern allows their opponents to get ahead just to make their games more interesting. Kouassi is the only injured player for Bayern at this time. Lewandowski is playing in fantastic form, and he has already scored 19 goals and added 5 assists, and he will certainly be the top goalscorer for another season. Muller has added 6 goals and 5 assists. There is a lot of talent in this Bayern’s team, but they need some defensive reinforcements as soon as possible because their defense is shaky, and they won’t always be able to score a lot of goals.
Bayern hasn’t lost in their last 20 games, and they are on a 3-game winning streak. Borussia has had some success against Bayern but given their struggles in the attacking end, and inconsistencies on the defensive end, I just don’t see them getting another win here. We are getting Bayern at a nice price, but I will add goals as well.
