Julian Nagelsmann’s first season on Bayern bench didn’t fully live up to expectations. The Bundesliga and German Supercup were won, but the Bavarians experienced a big shock in the Champions League where they were eliminated by Villarreal in the quarterfinals. Now, main target is to go all the way to the very end in the most elite European competition.
Bayern changed few starters this summer. The best player Robert Lewandowski left Munich for Barcelona, but team isn’t weakened at all. Several big signings were brought in such as Sadio Mane, Matthijs de Ligt, Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui. Previous matches showed that Bayern is currently one of the best teams in whole Europe.
In first three rounds of the Bundesliga, Bayern achieved three wins with a total goal difference 15:1. In the German Supercup, they defeated Leipzig 5:3, which speaks about their mood and form. Nagelsmann will insist that they continue to play in the same way and they will have the opportunity to prove themselves again versus Borussia Monchengladbach.
When Adi Hutter took over Borussia Monchengladbach last season, board management expected progress and a fight for top 6. Unfortunately for them, the team performed below all predictions and they ended up in 10th place in the Bundesliga. Because of this, Hutter was fired and Daniel Farke was appointed as new head coach.
When it comes to the transfer market, Borussia Monchengladbach didn’t change almost anything in their squad. Breel Embolo was sold to Monaco for 12 million euros, while Matthias Ginter decided to sign for Freiburg. Apart from them, almost everything remained the same. New center back is Ko Itakura, while another two million euros were invested in the talented Oscar Fraul.
Club management believes that reason for bad results was former head coach, not the players, and it looks like they were right. Borussia Monchengladbach collected seven points after three rounds in the Bundesliga. They defeated Hoffenheim and Hertha on their home pitch, while at road in Gelsenkirchen they played 2:2 against Schalke. Now, they will have by far the most difficult exam so far.
Borussia Monchengladbach played impressively against Bayern last season. These two clubs met three times and Bayern never won. Moreover, there was a sensational 5:0 for Borussia Monchengladbach in the German Cup. In the Bundesliga, black and whites collected four points in two clashes with Bavarians including win in Munich.
All players are available for Bayern. Ramy Bensebaini is the only one who won’t play for Borussia Monchengladbach due to injury.
Bayern vs. Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction
Bayern and Nagelsmann certainly haven’t forgotten the humiliation against Borussia Monchengladbach from last season. They will now be highly motivated to take revenge on them, and they really have the quality for such a thing.
