Sights of a nine consecutive Bundesliga title win lie on the horizon for Bayern Munich as they welcome Borussia Monchengladbach. The match schedules for Saturday at Allianz Arena with a kickoff at 7:30 pm.
Bayern Munich is on top of the food chain with a seven points lead over second-placed RB Leipzig. In contrast, Borussia Monchengladbach is four points behind a European spot in the standing.
First, Bayern Munich remains set on a managerial shift that will see RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann replacing Hansi Flick. Interestingly, Nagelsmann can mathematically catch up on the league leaders even with seven points gap and three games remaining.
However, a loss to Borussia Dortmund will only take Bayern Munich one win to clinch the Bundesliga champion. Moreover, Hansi Flick aims at leaving the Bavarian giants on a good note after a highly successful 18-months in charge.
Furthermore, it has been a revealing season for Robert Lewandowski. The Poland forward only needs four goals to equal Gerd Muller’s 40 goals in a Bundesliga campaign. Therefore, it remains a major hassle to make a record-breaking season.
In contrast, things are no rosy for their opponents, with Marco Rose looking for a well-deserving send-off. Marco Rose will find a new home at Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. Since crashing out of the Champions League, Rose secured 13 points in six matches.
