Borussia M’gladbach make a good preparation before the start of the second half of the season in the Bundesliga. “Die Borussen” played four friendly matches in which registered three wins and one draw against teams Besiktas, Hertha, St. Gallen and Bochum.

The team of Bayern Munich’s heading to the title for the second consecutive year. “The Bavarians” are the strongest team in the Bundesliga and advance them seven points ahead of second Bayer Leverkusen is not at all accidental.

This season Bayern beat Borussia 3-1 at the Allianz Arena. In the upcoming game I’m pretty sure that “The Bavarians” will again reach success, but because of the good form of the hosts will bet on over 2.5 goals option.
