The Bundesliga 2021-22 season reconvenes after the winter break, and the first game of the second half will be played between Monchengladbach, who travel to Munich to take on hosts Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich started the season, having won the Championship for 9 consecutive times, and is on track to claim it once more, for a record 31st time. The team is currently sitting comfortably at the first spot, with a comfortable lead of 9 points over the second-placed Borussia Dortmund. Monchengladbach, which has won the Championship 5 times, is struggling in 14th place. The team is fighting relegation to 2. Bundesliga, as it has a slender lead of just 2 points over 16th placed Stuttgart.
Bayern Munich’s form has been phenomenal this season, and come into this game on the back of 5 consecutive victories. The team has scored 56 goals so far, in the 17 games they have played, which is a Bundesliga record. On the other hand, Monchengladbach has lost 4 out of their last 5 games, including a humiliating 0-6 loss against Freiburg.
With such a poor run of form, things are looking bleak for Monchengladbach in this game too, and most football betting sites are predicting a Bayern Munich victory.
Match prediction and betting tips for Bayern Munich vs Borussia Monchengladbach Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Allianz Arena, Munich, on the 7th of January 2022.
Bayern will be facing some serious squad issues coming in from the winter break. A raft of players, including Leroy Sane, Lucas Hernandez, Corentin Tolisso, Manuel Neuer, and Omar Richards have tested positive for the coronavirus. With the AFCON coming up, Bouna Sarr and Choupo Moting have left to join their national sides. Josip Stanisic and Leon Goretzka are out with injuries. However, this would provide a chance to the youngsters to prove their mettle.
Monchengladbach players Denis Zakaria, Keanan Bennetts, Joe Scally, and Mamadou Doucoure have all tested positive and are currently in isolation.
The DFL rules state that a minimum of 15 players should be available to play at the start of the game, while Bayern has just 13 first-team players fit. The team will, however, be eager to play its first game since the break, and kick off the second half on a winning note.
We predict that with a depleted squad, Bayern is likely to face a fierce fightback from Monchengladbach, although they will most probably scrape through a win.
Bet on a Bayern Munich win.
COVID-19 is playing havoc with leagues aroud the world and that is the case with the Bundesliga as well. Bayern Munich is going to be without so many of its first-choice players that it is going to be affected on the field for sure. Usually the first thing to suffer is the defense and this is why we think both teams should be able to score in this match.
