Stadium: “Allianz-Arena” (Munich)
Bayern Munich… Neuer, Davis, Sane, Upamecano, Hernandez, Coman, Nyanzu, Tolisso, Richards (all – coronavirus). Shupo-Moting, Sarr (Africa Cup of Nations). Stanisic (injury).
Borussia M… Zakaria, Scully, Beyer, Bennets, Ducourt (all coronavirus). Bensebiny (at the African Cup of Nations). Hoffman (injury).
“Bayern” before Christmas won seven consecutive victories (in all competitions). In the last two rounds of the Bundesliga, Julian Nagelsmann’s charges defeated Stuttgart (5: 0) and Wolfsburg (4: 0).
Borussia, on the other hand, have scored only one point in the last five matches of the national championship. After four defeats in a row, the stallions on December 18 drew with Hoffenheim (1: 1).
“Bayern” this season has not yet beaten Borussia (Mönchengladbach). On August 13, in the opening match of the championship, a draw was recorded (1: 1), and on October 27, the stallions sensationally knocked out the “Reds” from the German Cup (5: 0).
It is unlikely that the Munich people will allow themselves to underestimate their rivals now, but they have huge personnel difficulties. Immediately 9 (!) Bayern football players passed positive tests for coronavirus and moved to self-isolation. It is already known that the reigning champion of the country is trying to achieve the transfer of the game with Borussia, but so far the final decision has not been made on this score.
You can bet on the fact that the guests will not lose with a good odds 3.56…
Borussia also has sick and injured players, but the problem is still not as total as in the camp of the opponents.
It is worth noting the bad performances of Adi Hütter’s team in away matches: the Stallions have not won 8 of their last 9 away matches in the Bundesliga (2 draws, 6 losses). But the bloodshed “Bavaria”, they may well give battle. You can bet on guests with a handicap of +1.5 balls with a coefficient 2.02…
According to bookmakers, the game in Munich will be productive. However, it can be assumed that in the absence of many players from the main squad, “Bavaria” will not be able to score a lot. Well, the “stallions”, in principle, on the road do not often differ in goals. You can bet on the total total less than 4.0 goals with the odds 1.72…
Forecast and rate
I will choose a bet for guests with a positive handicap… But, of course, you need to closely monitor the news regarding the status of the upcoming game.
