Under Niko Kovacs Bayern Munich appeared to be heading for a disappointing season, but under replacement Hansi Flick they look set to get their hands on a domestic double at least and perhaps even a treble should the Champions League final stages eventually be played out.
Having clicked into gear in the second half of the campaign however, die Roten have now gone 20 games unbeaten in all competitions, winning 19 of those matches to put themselves seven points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table with only four games remaining.
As such, if Borussia Dortmund – who were beaten 0-1 by Flick’s men just three games ago – are beaten in their fixture against Fortuna Dusseldörf earlier on Saturday, a win in this game would be enough to hand Bayern the Meisterschale.
Their opponents still have plenty to play for here though. Borussia Mönchengladbach are clinging onto fourth place and the final Champions League qualification spot on goal difference after a defeat to Freiburg last weekend.
BMG were also beaten by top four rivals Bayer Leverkusen earlier this month, but remain in the top four thanks in no small part to Bayern’s away win over die Werkself last weekend. Three points here would go a long way in securing Champions League football for the first time since the 2016/2017 campaign.

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Mönchengladbach Predictions
Squawka Stat: There have been an average of 4.00 goals scored in Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga matches this season – the highest average in the division.
Bayern Munich’s matches have been typically crammed with goals since their return to Bundesliga action last month. In their last four games, Hansi Flick’s men have smashed in 15 goals but have showed some defensive frailties too, conceding four goals across those same four matches.
In Borussia Mönchengladbach, they take on a team known for their attacking intent. Die Fohlen rank fourth for goals scored in the Bundesliga, but they also rank in the top four for metrics such as Big Chances Created, Take-Ons Completed and Shots on Target, showing their willingness to try and play on the front foot.
With the home advantage and with their long-running stretch of unbeaten form, Bayern will expect to take the game here and we’re combining the home win with over 3.5 goals, with at least five goals being scored in three of die Roten’s last four games.
Squawka Stat: Over 1.5 first-half goals have been scored in six of Bayern Munich’s last nine Bundesliga matches
Although the Over 1.5 first-half goals bet has come in on just 53% of Bayern Munich’s matches this season, the bet has been far more successful under Hansi Flick’s reign and particularly in the last few weeks as the German boss clearly favours an attacking approach from the first whistle, leading to some very expansive first-half performances in recent weeks.
Marco Rose’s Borussia Monchengladbach outfit have scored twice themselves in the first-half of recent wins over Eintracht Frankfurt and Union Berlin and are likely to provide an attacking threat of their own on the counter-attack, so there will most likely be chances at both ends here.
After four goals were scored in the first half of die Roten’s win at Bayer Leverkusen last weekend, over 1.5 goals have now been scored in the first half in six of Bayern’s last nine games and given that we anticipate another high-scoring match against BMG this time around, it only makes sense to back the same again here.
Squawka Stat: Thomas Müller leads the Bundesliga assists chart with 20 assists in the league so far this season.
We’re almost getting tired of backing Thomas Müller to get an assist – but as long as he continues to oblige and pick up winners, we’ll carry on backing him!
The German midfielder leads the Bundesliga assists charts still, despite intense pressure from Jadon Sancho, and he also ranks first in the division in metrics such as Big Chances Created, Expected Assists, Chances Created on Target, showing just how adept he is at supplying the likes of Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski in this Bayern team.
After laying on the opener for Ivan Perišić in the DFK-Pokal semi-final victory over Frankfurt in midweek, Müller now has five assists in his last five games in all competitions – expect him to set up yet another goal for this prolific Bayern outfit on Saturday evening.
Squawka Bet Tip: Thomas Müller to get an assist – odds will appear here when available.
