Our football match prediction:
Borussia M’gladbach and Bayer Munich face each other at Stadion im Borussia Park in what is expected to be the most entertaining game of Sunday’s program. Die Fohlen aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Hamburger, but they will have a big fish to fry in the game against the title holders. Dieter Hecking’s team are eyeing a place in the Europa League and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in the derby against Bayern Munich. The mighty Bavarians recorded a 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend, but their performance in the Allianz Arena clash was anything but brilliant. Anyhow, Carlo Ancelotti’s men retained top position in the Bundesliga standings and the title holders will be looking to move one step closer to defending their trophy with a win over Borussia M’gladbach. Robert Lewandowski is enjoying yet another successful season and we predict that he is going to prove a handful for the opposition back-line in Saturday's football game.
Highligted Player (Yann Sommer):
After making 133 league appearances for Basel between 2007 and 2014, Yann Sommer joined Borussia Monchengladbach on March, 2014. The Swiss goalkeeper signed a five-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit and he was signed to replace Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who joined Barcelona. Sommer made 34 appearances for Borussia M’gladbach in the 2014/2015 season and it has to be noted that he managed to keep 15 clean sheets. As a result, die Fohlen finished the season in third place in the standings. The Swiss shoot-stopper, though, was not as successful in the 2015/2016 season, keeping just 5 clean sheets, while conceding 50 goals in the process. Sommer made his Switzerland debut on 30 May, 2012 in a 1-0 loss to Romania and he represented the Rossocrociati at both 2014 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2016. The shoot-stopper made 8 appearances for Switzerland on the road to Euro 2016 and he conceded eight goals in the process. Sommer played four games for the Rossocrociati at the tournament in France, conceding two goals, while keeping two clean sheets.
Highlighted Team (Bayern Munich):
Over the years Bayern Munich have established themselves as one of the most successful European clubs. The Stern des Sudens (Star of the South) are the dominant force in German football and it has to be noted that the Bavarians clinched their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016. Bayern Munich have won 18 German Cup trophies, while winning the Champions League (European Cup) five times. The German giants clinched the Intercontinental Cup in 1976 and 2001, while lifting the FIFA Club World Cup trophy in 2013. Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 by eleven football players and their leader was Franz John. The Bavarians host their rivals at Allianz Arena (75,000), the stadium that was built in 2005. Fellow Bavarian sides TSV 1860 Munchen 1860 and Nurnberg are regarded as Bayern Munich’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalry between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern is big as well. The likes of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthaus, Oliver Kahn, Gerd Muller and Giovane Elber are famous footballers who played for Bayern Munich in the past.
