Our football match prediction:
Borussia M’gladbach and Bayern Munich face each other at Stadion im Borussia-Park on day 13 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Die Fohlen proved their worth in a 4-2 win over Hertha Berlin and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face the title holders in front of home fans. Borussia M’gladbach occupy fourth position in the Bundesliga standings, but they face an uphill task in Saturday’s football match against the mighty Bavarians. Bayern Munich have been producing terrific performances in the German top flight ever since Jupp Heynckes took over the reins and a win over die Fohlen would see them cement top position in the standings. Both sides are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s derby, but we predict that the reigning champions will pick up all three points from the match as they are on a five-game winning run in the national championship.
