The German Bundesliga is now in its home stretch with only four matches left per team and two playing weeks to go in the 202 regular seasons. Defending champions Bayern Munich are on their way to an impressive 8th consecutive Bundesliga title and they could inch closer to that with a win over Borussia Monchengladbach this weekend. The two sides meet on June 13, 2020, at the Allianz Arena. This match will air via FS1 and TUDN at 12:30 EST on Saturday.

Soccer Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich sit on top of the Bundesliga table with 70 points and they enter matchday 30 with a total of 22 wins, 4 draws, and 4 losses. The defending champions are seven points ahead of Borussia Dortmund with four games left to play. If by any chance Dortmund loses to relegation candidate Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday, and Bayern Munich beats M’Gladbach, the champs will formalize their 8th consecutive Bundesliga title.

Bayern faced a Bayer Leverkusen squad that played without Kai Havertz last weekend and they went home with a comfortable 4-2 victory. Leverkusen got on board first in the 9th minute but Bayern Munich took control of the match by taking a 3-1 lead at the half. The champs cruised in the second half to walk away with three points on the road.

Robert Lewandowski is Bayern Munich’s top goalscorer with a total of 30 goals scored on the season. Serge Gnabry also has double-digit goals with 12 while Philippe Coutinho has scored 8 goals this season. Thomas Muller leads the squad with 20 assists this year while Gnabry has 10 assists and Joshua Kimmich with seven assists.

Bayern is the top goal-scoring team in the Bundesliga with 90 goals scored this term. They are also the league’s best defensive team with only 30 goals allowed this season. Bayern Munich’s +60 goal difference is also the best in the German top flight and they rank second in assists with a total of 69.

Soccer Borussia Monchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach enters the final four games in a tight battle for the final Champions League spot. Gladbach is currently in fourth place with a total of 56 points earned from a record of 17 wins, 5 draws, and 8 losses. They are tied with 5th place Bayer Leverkusen in points but have the edge right now with a superior goal difference so the final four games will be crucial for both squads. Gladbach is also three points behind RB Leipzig so there is also a chance that they will finish in the Top 3.

Gladbach visited Freiburg last weekend and they were disappointed to leave with a 0-1 defeat. They should have been up by a couple of goals at the half but M’Gladbach could not take advantage of their opportunities. Freiburg made the most out of a free kick in the 58th minute and found the back of the net for a 1-0 lead which they preserved until the final whistle.

Marcus Thuram leads Borussia Monchengladbach with a total of 10 goals scored on the season. Alassane Plea also has 10 goals on the year while Breel Embolo has found the back of the net seven times. Plea leads the team with 10 assists while Thuram has 8 assists as well. Patrick Herrmann has a total of six assists while also scoring five goals this term.

Borussia Monchengladbach ranks 4th in the Bundesliga in scoring with 57 goals on the year. Their 36 goals allowed is also 4th-best in the German top flight this season. Gladbach also has produced a total of 47 assists on the season while they have a goal difference of +21.

Soccer Who Wins?

These teams have met in a total of 111 head to head matches. Bayern Munich leads their all-time series and has a commanding 53-32-25 edge over Borussia Monchengladbach. However, M’Gladbach won their reverse fixture match early last December via a score of 2-1.

Bayern is the second-best home team in Germany with a record of 11-2-2 at home while earning a total of 35 points during those games. The defending champions have won all of their five matches since the restart of play. Gladbach is the sixth-best away team in the Bundesliga with a record of 7-3-5 with 24 points earned in those matches. They have two wins, one draw, and two losses since the league resumed in mid-May.

The statistics that the Bavarians have posted this year have been very impressive and an 8th straight Bundesliga title looks like a formality. They have not dropped a point since the league resumed action so there is no reason for me not to back the betting favorites here.

Borussia Monchengladbach though is a side that has given Bayern problems before. They came back from a point down to beat the champs last December. Gladbach has also won three out of their last five head to head matches against Bayern Munich so there is value in predicting an upset here.

Bayern will be playing without Polish striker Robert Lewandowski who is the league’s top scorer and they will be also be missing Thomas Muller in this clash as both men are suspended for this contest.

The pressure will be on Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman to produce the goals. The two have provided adequate scoring but without Lewandoski, the fearsome Bayern scoring attack will not be the same.

Gladbach needs this match more than Bayern Munich. They are fighting for a Top Four finish and a defeat here could be costly. If they beat Bayern for the second time this season, they will put the pressure on Bayer Leverkusen who doesn’t play until Sunday.

Prediction: The easy bet to make is of course the champions. But if you’re looking for a big payday, picking a draw or a Borussia Monchengladbach win wouldn’t be a bad idea. I think M’Gladbach forces a tie against a Lewandowski-less Bayern side. I’m going with a DRAW at +420

Alternate Bet

If there’s one thing common between these two teams in 2020, it’s that they have consistently found the back of the net. They have scored a combined 147 goals this season and I expect more to be added to that tally this weekend. Bayern has netter 17 times in the five games since the resumption of play while M’Gladbach has scored eight times since the return of action. With the rate these squads have been scoring, I like both teams to score goals this Saturday.

Prediction: If you think Bayern Munich at (-270) is too expensive, then bet on BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE: YES at -(-175). I would have loved the (-110) of the OVER 3.5 goals but without Lewandowski, I’ll stick to the “both teams to score” bet.
