Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich 03/03/19
03 March 2019
Saturday’s Bundesliga action concludes with a massive clash between Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich as the two teams face against each other at the Borussia-Park.
A poor haul of one point in their last three Bundesliga fixtures has seen the hosts practically losing a chance of overthrowing BVB as they currently have 11 points less than the leaders. What’s more, two of their last league losses come at the Borussia-Park just when the Borussians boasted a perfect home record of nine successive wins. Also, Dieter Hecking’s men have gone from nine consecutive home games in which they’ve scored 2+ match goals, to two in which they’ve struggled to hit the net. But, the Foals have proved to be a tough opponent for Bayern having prevented the Bavarians from picking up all three points in three of their last four H2H clashes at this venue (W2, D1, L1).
Meanwhile, the visitors have taken full advantage of Dortmund’s recent crisis to reduce the gap to three points, but there’s no room for mistake in this encounter. The Bavarians come into this meeting after pulling off three consecutive BL triumphs in which they’ve scored seven goals although conceding three in the process. Interestingly, the Reds have collected more points away from home this campaign, securing nine wins on 12 Bundesliga road trips so far. Moreover, all nine of their away victories have seen Niko Kovac’s men bagging 2+ match goals, as they remain the best offensive road team in the German top flight, with 28 goals notched. A potential worry for the Croatian could, however, be the fact his players already conceded 14 goals away from home, failing to preserve a clean slate on each of their last three BL away contests.
