Borussia Monchengladbach – Bayern Munich | 08/01/2021

Borussia Monchengladbach host Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Friday with the visitors looking to remain top of the table with a victory. Gladbach, meanwhile, lie four points outside of the Champions League qualification positions, and may need to go on a winning run at some point soon to get themselves back within them.

Sitting just outside the European places, Borussia Mönchengladbach snapped a run of four winless Bundesliga games (D3, L1) with a 1-0 success last time out. That game also marked the 12th time in 14 league games to see them net first, although they failed to win more than half of those (W5, D5, L2).

Five of those openers came at home, where they are unbeaten over Bundesliga first halves here this season (1H: W3, D4). However, Gladbach have won only two of seven second-halves played at home (2H: W2, D3, L2), and registered no goals from the 81st minute to FT while letting in three. Providing a boost to their hopes, though, Gladbach are the best-performing Bundesliga team against Bayern since 2014/15 (W5, D2, L5).

Table toppers Bayern are on a club-record run of eight Bundesliga games in which they conceded first (W5, D3), in turn also creating a new Bundesliga record of avoiding defeat in eight straight games when going behind. Dominant second-half displays by ‘Die Roten’ (2H: W7, D1) have played a huge part in this, with 13 of their 20 goals scored coming after the break.

The visitors have won five (D1) of their last six Bundesliga away games, winning the second-half in the last four. Entertainment seems guaranteed, as every one of Bayern’s away league games this season have seen both teams score, with at least over 2.5 match goals on six occasions (W5, L1).
