Bayern vs Monchengladbach Prediction: Bundesliga Match on 27.08.2022

Bayern Munich will be looking to make it four wins in a row early on in their Bundesliga season when they host in-form Monchengladbach at the Allianz Arena on Saturday at 17:30 GMT. Monchengladbach will leapfrog Bayern with a win as the dynamics at the top of the Bundesliga table play out early on. 


Match Preview

Can Bayern Munich Continue their 100% Start to the Season?

Julian Nageslmann’s side have made a storming start to the defense of their Bundesliga title. They have won the opening three matches, scored 15 goals, and conceded one.

The Bavarians will be looking to extend this impressive start to the season when they host in-form Monchengladbach, who have made an impressive start to the season with two wins and a draw. 

Nagelsmann will look to have his team motivated as they look to dominate the match and create goal-scoring opportunities. The focus will be on maintaining a high tempo, pressing throughout the pitch, and putting the opponents on the back foot. 

Playing in front of the home fans at the Allianz Arena, Bayern will look to create and sustain a cauldron of an atmosphere to drive them to victory. 

Can Monchengladbach Leapfrog Bayern to the Top of Bundesliga with a Win?

Monchengladbach will be the underdogs in the clash with the Champions at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. 

Daniel Farke’s focus will be on maintaining the high energy levels and tempo in the match against the most in-form team in the Bundesliga. This will be crucial given the massive pressure they are likely to come under against the ferocious press from the Bavarians. 

Farke will also seek to ensure that his team remains solid against a very potent Bayern attack. 

This is important because Farke’s side have conceded in all the matches they have played this season, which means a clean sheet will be important in bolstering their chance of taking something from the Allianz Arena.

Form Guide

Bayern Munich

Julian Nagelsmann’s side kicked off their Bundesliga season with a comfortable 6-1 win away at Eintracht Frankfurt. They subsequently won 2-0 against Wolfsburg in their second match.

Last weekend, Bayern won a thumping match against VfL Bochum 7-0. So far, the Bavarians have scored 15 goals and conceded one in the process.

Nagelsmann will be looking to maintain this good form when they host Monchengladbach on Saturday. The focus will be on a good performance and taking the three points to extend their 100% start to the season to four matches.

Monchengladbach

Before the Bundesliga kicked off, Monchengladbach played in the first round of the DFB-Pokal against Oberachem; they triumphed 9-1 to set themselves perfectly for the Bundesliga.

Daniel Farke’s side have made an impressive start to the season with two wins and a draw from their opening three matches in the Bundesliga. They opened the season with a 3-1 win against Hoffenheim before drawing 2-2 against Schalke. In their latest match, Monchengladbach won 1-0 against Hertha. 

Monchengladbach will be looking to extend their good form by upsetting the Champions at the Allianz Arena. 

Possible Starting Lineups

Bayern

Neuer; L. Hernandez, M. de Ligt, D. Upemecano, B. Pavard; L. Sane, M. Sabitzer, J. Kimmich, K. Coman; S. Mane, T. Muller

Monchengladbach

Sommer; J. Scally, K. Itakura, N. Elvedi, R. Bensebaini; C. Kramer, K. Kone; J. Hofmann, F. Neuhaus, A. Plea; M. Thuram


Players to Watch

S. Mane

With three goals already in the Bundesliga in four appearances for Bayern Munich and one goal in the DFL-Supercup, the former Liverpool ace is taking to life at the Allianz Arena and the Bundesliga. 

Mane’s on-pitch relationship with other attacking players in the Bayern team has been robust and has added another dimension to their attacking play, especially in the post-Lewandowski era.

Mane will be crucial for Bayern when they take on Monchengladbach on Saturday, and he will be at the center of the dangerous attacking the Bavarians will offer at the Allianz Arena. 

A. Plea

The 29-year-old Frenchman is an important attacking cog for Monchengladbach. His experience is important in maintaining the shape, energy, and intensity of the team’s attacking approach.

Plea scored the winning goal for Daniel Farke’s side in their 1-0 win over Hertha last Friday. 

His pace down the wide areas and ability to cut inside are essential in adding an extra dynamism to the Monchengladbach attack.

Prediction

Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern Munich will dominate possession. They will maintain their patient build-up from the back, short passing, and domination of the midfield. They will also seek to press the ball across the pitch and force the opponents on the back foot.

Monchengladbach will look to be compact in their approach. They will employ a low defensive bloc and a medium press in their tactics. This will ensure that Bayern’s attacking players will not be afforded space behind to attack.

Given their form, quality, and home advantage, Bayern Munich are odds-on favorites to win the match and take all three points.
