Our match prediction:
Even though the Bavarians suffered a defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid (1-0), Pep Guardiola can be satisfied with the end result, since the losing margin could have been greater if it hadn’t been for the woodwork. Bayern do not have much time to contemplate on the loss, since they are still to secure the Bundesliga title in the forthcoming clash with the Foals. Die Fohlen achieved a victory over Hoffenheim in the previous round and now sit only a point away from the top-four spot. Despite the fact that Andre Schubert’s side are undefeated in their previous three encounters with Allianz Arena outfit, their miserable away form could prove crucial this Sunday. Stadion im Borussia-Park outfit are on an eight-game winless streak on the road on all fronts, they failed to score a single goal in their last two matches on their travels, while Der FCB are quite impressive on home soil of late. This is why we predict a triumph for Guardiola’s side.
