There are few matches in the Bundesliga that will get your blood pumping more than Bayern Munich taking on Borussia Mönchengladbach. Saturday's match from Borussia Park should be no exception to the rule.
Do you remember when Gladbach opened the season with six straight losses in all competitions, Lucien Favre resigned, and the team looked like they were dead in the water? Two and a half months, Gladbach has lost one out of their last fourteen matches. This is not a team to take lightly.
Fabian Johnson's current run of form for Gladbach is something for FC Bayern to keep an eye on in the match. He's shown a tenacity on the counter, and his goals have been extremely well taken to the point that he's a legitimate goal threat now for Gladbach.
Bayern will be without six big time players as David Alaba, Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa, Mario Götze, Juan Bernat, and Thiago Alcantara will not be making the trip. Do you notice whose name is not on that list? Franck Ribery will be traveling with the Bavarians, once again, to Mönchengladbach.
Once the lineups are released, this thread will be updated.
