Bay­ern de­ter­mined to break Glad­bach hoodoo

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

FC Bay­ern München will be bid­ding for a first win over Borus­sia Mönchenglad­bach since Jan­uary 2014 as they look to get their Bun­desliga cam­paign back on track in the big game of Match­day 8 to­day.

Af­ter drop­ping points against 1. FC Köln and Ein­tra­cht Frank­furt in their last two games, Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be de­ter­mined to get back to win­ning ways against their old ri­vals Glad­bach.

The Foals were the only side the Bavar­i­ans failed to beat in the Bun­desliga last sea­son, and they will be out to set the record straight at the Al­lianz Arena.

Bay­ern, who are two points clear at the top, haven’t gone three top-flight games with­out a win since May last year.

Glad­bach could also do with a boost af­ter be­ing thrashed by FC Schalke 04 and play­ing out a frus­trat­ing draw with Hamburger SV.

The Foals may not en­joy the same ri­valry with Bay­ern that they did in the 1970s, when the pair shared nine straight Bun­desliga ti­tles, but they have be­come a thorn in the cham­pi­ons’

An­dre Schu­bert’s charges cer­tainly won’t be over­whelmed at the Al­lianz, where they have only lost once since 2011, as they look to move up to­wards the Euro­pean places.

Both sides failed to win on Match­day 7 but Glad­bach have never gone three Bun­desliga games in a row with­out vic­tory un­der Schu­bert.

Bay­ern have dropped points af­ter tak­ing the lead in two con­sec­u­tive Bun­desliga games for the first time since March 2010.
