Bayern Munich vs Borussia Mönchengladbach 15/04/18
Bayern Munich have already wrapped up their sixth consecutive Bundesliga title after a 4-1 victory over Augsburg on the road last weekend, and they are set to host Borussia Mönchengladbach at the Allianz Arena without any pressure. The Bavarians have also secured their place in the Champions League semi-finals by eliminating La Liga side Sevilla, as Jupp Heynckes looks to bring the German heavyweights back at the very top. The Foals, on the other hand, are going through a minor crisis that might cost them European football for the next season, as they are six points behind sixth-placed RB Leipzig, and given the fact they are going to face the best German team, things won’t get better for Dieter Hecking’s side. Last weekend’s 2-1 win over Hertha ended Mönchengladbach’s four-game winless streak, while Bayern won four out of their previous five matches in the Bundesliga, with an impressive attacking efficiency, scoring twenty-one goals in the process. The Borussians have beaten the Reds by two goals to one in the first half of the season, and they are desperate to repeat the same scenario hoping to secure Europa League promotion spot.
Kingsley Coman and Manuel Neuer are injured in the home squad, while the appearance of David Alaba, Arturo Vidal, James Rodriguez, and Javi Martinez still hangs in the balance. Patrick Herrmann, Fabian Johnson, Reece Oxford, Mamadou Doucouré, and Julio Villalba are all struggling with injuries in the visiting team.
