Borussia Monchengladbach – Bayern
The Bundesliga kicks off on Friday withBorussia Monchengladbach set to host Bayern Munich in the opening game. Bayern won the Bundesliga for the ninth consecutive time last season and will be looking to extend it to 10 this campaign.
Monchengladbach endured a disastrous ending to the Bundesliga last season which saw them fall out of the European spots. They finished eighth in the competition and will be looking to return to Europe next season under new boss Adolf Hutter. Like their hosts, Bayern Munich will also begin the new campaign under a new manager. Former RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is set to make his official managerial debut as Bayern Munich boss on Friday.
Borussia Monchengladbach did not win any of their first two pre-season games. However, they won the final three, scoring five goals and conceding just one.
Bayern Munich, on the other hand, had a very poor pre-season. They are also missing a number of key figures in defense and may not see a win on the opening day. We predict a high-scoring and entertaining draw.
This match will be played on 13/08/2021 at 21:30.
