Pep Guardiola is still on course to have his best year at Bayern Munich in his final year at the club. He can seal a 3rd league title in his 3 year stay at the club with victory over Monchengladbach. Their focus will be on the Champions League however as they take on Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night in the semi-finals. Bayern enjoyed a relatively comfortable 2-0 victory over 4th placed Hertha Berlin with goals from Arturo Vidal and Douglas Costa. Robert Lewandowski has hit a rare dry patch in his successful career as the Polish forward has scored just 2 goals in his last 6 starts. His phenomenal start to the season has kept him top of the goal scoring charts however as he currently has 27 league goals with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Borussia Dortmund trailing in 2nd by 4 goals.

Borussia Monchengladbach celebrating their memorable win over Bayern Munich earlier in the season

Borussia Monchengladbach are just 1 point off Hertha Berlin for the final Champions League place in the Bundesliga. Victory over Hoffenheim at the weekend continued their fine home form where they’ve now won 7 consecutive matches. On the road it is a different story as they’ve gained just 1 point from their previous 8 away games. Monchengladbach registered a staggering 24 shots on Hoffenheim’s goal but were helped by an early own goal by the opposition which they never recovered from. The hosts had a slight scare shortly after half time when Andrej Kramaric pulled one back for Hoffenheim but the 2 goal cushion was restored within 7 minutes. Monchengladbach will be desperate to achieve back-to-back qualifications for the Champions League after they upset the odds last year.

Bayern Munich have slipped up just once at home in the league this year as they suffered a shock loss at the hands of Mainz. The defeat also saw Munich ship 2 of the 6 goals they’ve conceded at home in the league. Borussia Monchengladbach have the 3rd worst away record in the league having only picked up 11 points from a possible 45 this season. Monchengladbach are the only other side in the league to defeat Bayern back in December. Munich haven’t beaten Monchengladbach in the previous 3 meetings.

Bayern could be tempted to rest players as they look to navigate their way into the 2016 Champions League final. A lot rests on the outcome of the 1st leg against Atletico Madrid Wednesday night but Pep Guardiola will also want to celebrate with the home fans another Bundesliga title for Germany’s most successful club in his final season. Arjen Robben, Jerome Boateng, Juan Bernat and Holger Badstuber will all be out.
