Borussia Moenchengladbach

Things have not been great for Borussia Moenchengladbach in the last four games. They only notched three points out of a possible 12. Gladbach last tasted victory on November 29 when they won against Schalke, 4-1. In their last game against Hoffenheim, Gladbach opened fire with Lars Stindl scoring a penalty in the first half. However, Andrej Kramanic equalized for Hoffenheim and things got worse for Gladbach when Marcus Thuram was sent off in the 78th minute for spitting. The one-man advantage worked for Hoffenheim as Ryan Sessegnon scored eight minutes later to ensure the win. Stindl will again lead the team’s offense but his workload is expected to increase if Thuram gets suspended for several games. Yann Sommer is expected to man the pipes again for the squad but he will need help from his teammates to fend off Bayern’s attacks.

Players to Watch: Lars Stindl (8 goals, 1 assist); Jonas Hofmann (2 goals, 4 assists); Florian Neuhaus (2 goals, 2 assists); Marcus Thuram (2 goals, 1 assist); Alassane Plea (2 goals, 1 assist).

Bayern Munich

The defending eight-peat Bundesliga champions seek to extend their unbeaten streak and are expected to have an easier time against a depleted Gladbach. In their previous match against Bayer Leverkusen, Robert Lewandowski scored two goals, including the game-winner in injury time. The win sent Bayern to the top of the standings with 30 points and relegated Leverkusen to second place. The newly-crowned FIFA men’s player of the year will again lead Bayern’s attack as he hopes to add up to the 17 goals he scored this season. Thomas Mueller and Kingsley Coman will back Lewandowski once again in offense. Manuel Neuer is expected to start as the goalkeeper for Bayern with 33 saves in 13 matches.

Players to Watch: Robert Lewandowski (17 goals, 4 assists); Thomas Mueller (6 goals, 7 assists); Serge Gnabry (4 goals); Leroy Sane (3 goals, 3 assists); Jamal Musiala (3 goals); Kingsley Coman (2 goals, 7 assists).
