Football – Germany Bundesliga
Judi Bola, Mpobos.com – Gladbach continued their momentum with a 4:2 home victory against Freiburg last weekend.
It was a very open game from both ends, with Gladbach looking pretty relaxed in offense and creating even more than what the final result says, including a penalty missed at the start of the second halftime.
The team made a perfect reply after their loss on the road to Union Berlin, as the side continues to lead the table with a point more than second-placed Leipzig, but surely now awaiting the biggest possible test so far in the season.
Defender Ginter (10/0) is doubtful for this one, similar to a couple of other long-term absentees who anyway didn’t play so far this season. Embolo should lead their attack in a 4-1-4-1 formation.
After the sacking of ex-coach Kovac, Bayern looked pretty determined and very effective with four consecutive victories – over Olympiakos and Crvena Zvezda in the Champions League and Dortmund and Dusseldorf scoring sixteen goals in these four matches.
However, everything looked a bit different last Saturday afternoon when they suffered 1:2 home defeat against Leverkusen.
The team looked too vulnerable at the back in the first halftime conceding twice thanks to a goal from Bailey, while the Bavarians upped the tempo in the second halftime and missed some really huge opportunities in the process.
Bayern is now fourth at the table and this match comes as a must-win in order to come closer to that first position as soon as possible.
The Bavarians are set to miss defenders Hernandez (6/0) and Sule (8/0). Lewandowski should lead their attack in a version of a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Gladbach has scored at least 3 goals in their last 4 home matches in Bundesliga.
Knowing these two teams and the way they play, it’s almost impossible not to see goals in this clash.
However Gladbach plays at home, this should be a really huge test for them, especially for their defense when they don’t have the desired ball possession to their feet. The Bavarians should come up at the top of this clash, combined with probably a high number of goals scored.
