Bayern vs Borussia Monchengladbach: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Bayern put up a great performance in the first half of the season - Julian Nagelsmann's team ended the 2021 at the top of Bundesliga standings. Their nearest competitor, Borussia Dortmund, is nine points away, which is a serious handicap.
Seems like the Bumblebees are the only real threat to Bayern, because Freiburg is 14 points away and Bayer needs 15 points to overcome the deficit, which is almost impossible to do. In the most recent match Bayern trashed Wolfsburg at home (4:0), getting their seventh consecutive victory in all competitions.
Borussia started the current Bundesliga tournament with a 1:1 draw against Bayern, but Adi Hutter's men were unable to extend that success. Throughout the whole first half of the season the Colts were incredibly inconsistent, so they left for a winter break at 14th position in the standings.
Borussia is only two points ahead of the relegation play-off zone and three points ahead of straight relegation zone, so after this round the situation can get worse. In the most recent match Borussia drew to Hoffenheim (1:1), ending their four-game losing streak.
Borussia suffered 2 out of 4 most recent defeats with that score
In two out of three most recent home matches of Bayern this bet was successful
In each of two most recent head-to-head matches Borussia scored in the first half
At the end of the previous year Bayern managed to break away from Borussia Dortmund, but hosts will try to extend their lead, because a nine-game handicap is not big enough. Borussia was in a terrible form before the winter break, losing four out of five most recent matches. We don't think that team managed to fix all of their problems in such a short amount of time, so Bayern should record a confident victory in revenge for a 0:5 defeat in the domestic cup.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1.5) on Bayern

Do you agree with this bet?0 votes
Bayern has some problems with the squad, but main forwards of the champion are available for the game, so they will rely on them today. Borussia's defensive line is far from perfect, so we are not expecting a great defensive performance in this match. Hosts are a clear favourite of the match and they should be able to live up to the expectations.
Our second bet is on Bayern to win by two goals
