A huge away win for Gladbach who had previously been smashed 6-0 on their previous visit to the Allianz Arena and were in 12th place heading into this match behind closed doors.

Borussia Mönchengladbach 5-0 Bayern Munich (27/10/2021)

A night to remember for the The Foals faithful and for Swiss star Breel Embolo who struck twice in the second half having made an assist and won a penalty in the first forty-five minutes.

Borussia Mönchengladbach 1-1 Bayern Munich (13/08/2021)

A season-opener in 2021 and as has been the case in recent matches it was Borussia Mönchengladbach who took the lead, an Alassane Plea strike. Robert Lewandowski equalized just before the break and neither side was unable to secure the three points with both goalkeepers, particularly Yann Sommer, on top form.

Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Bayern Munich what to expect

Based on current form you would expect Bayern Munich to win and Borussia Monchengladbach to concede a hatful of goals – such as been the contrasting starts to the season for both sides. However, recent history has suggested that Gladbach have become something of a bogey team for the reigning German champions which makes this an intriguing match up. Overall with new signing Harry Kane hitting the ground running you would expect Bayern to end up taking all three points even if they can’t keep a clean sheet.
