Team News: Bayern Munich
Douglas Costa (Hairline crack in the foot) and Corentin Tolisso (torn tendon) are unavailable for Bayern gaffer Hans-Dieter Flick.
Team News: Gladbach
Gladbach boss Marco Rose has to choose a team with limited availability. Torben Müsel (Unknown Injury), Julio Villalba (Unknown Injury) and Mamadou Doucouré (Achilles tendon rupture) are not able to play.
Our assessment is that Bayern Munich will, in all likelihood, dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
At the other end, Gladbach may well find it hard finding the net themselves although we do see them hitting back at some stage here, too.
We’re predicting a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Bayern Munich at the end of the 90 minutes.
