Bayern Munich welcome Borussia Mönchengladbach to the Allianz Arena while they try to get rid of a serious dip in form. After a 100% record in the first four games of the campaign, Bayern Munich have dropped four points in the last two league outings. As a result, they have conceded the top spot in the Bundesliga to Borussia Dortmund, who have a one-point advantage. Borussia Mönchengladbach are just two points behind Bayern coming into this match.

Betting Tips for the game
Bayern Munich picked up a 1-1 draw with Ajax to deepen their problems under Nico Kovac, who had a tremendous start to life at the club with four consecutive Bundesliga wins. During the weekend, however, Bayern lost for the first time in the league when they were beaten 2-0 by Hertha Berlin.
Borussia Mönchengladbach were able to manage a 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg as their winless run at the Volkswagen Arena continued even after taking a lead twice in the match. Mönchengladbach have also lost only once – to Hertha Berlin – this season.
The recent encounter between Bayern and Mönchengladbach also took place at the Allianz Arena with the home team getting a fabulous 5-1 victory. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Borussia Mönchengladbach are priced at an incredible 13.00 to win the game but it is difficult to go against a team that has looked solid so far this season. Hertha Berlin are the only team to beat Mönchengladbach, who actually have a decent record at the Allianz Arena – even after the 5-1 humiliation last season. Mönchengladbach last picked up a win on this ground back in 2015 but they have also drawn games here. They may take advantage of Bayern’s Champions League exertions and their recent poor form. There is a huge amount of value in backing a draw.

Bayern Munich win odds: 1.20
Borussia Mönchengladbach win odds: 13.00
Correct Score odds
Bayern have struggled to remain clinical in front of goal. Opponents have been able to capitalise on the same. They have held the defending champions to two draws and a defeat in the last three matches. Mönchengladbach are no strangers to scoring at the Allianz Arena. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been two 1-1 draws for Bayern in the last three matches and it is not down to a lack of creativity within the defending champions. Kovac’s men have created chances in plenty but they have been unable to put away those chances. Mönchengladbach have Plea and Hazard in good form, but they are likely to be defensive. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alassane Plea has been in excellent form this season and he has been able to get himself four goals so far – three of them breaking the deadlock. The 25-year-old has been unable to score only once for Mönchengladbach in the last five games. Our first goalscorer prediction would recommend backing Plea at an attractive price.
