The Bundesliga kicks off on Friday with Borussia Monchengladbach set to host Bayern Munich in the opening game.

Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga for the ninth consecutive time last season and will be looking to extend it to 10 this campaign.

Borussia Monchengladbach endured a disastrous ending to the Bundesliga last season which saw them fall out of the European spots. They finished eighth in the competition and will be looking to return to Europe next season under new boss Adolf Hutter.

Like their hosts, Bayern Munich will also begin the new campaign under a new manager. Former RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is set to make his official managerial debut as Bayern Munich boss on Friday.

Nagelsmann was in charge of Bayern Munich during the pre-season but did not get the best of results. In the four friendlies Bayern Munich played, the Bavarians lost three and drew the other one. Julian Nagelsmann will be looking to change that when the season begins.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayern Munich Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach did not win any of their first two pre-season games. However, they won the final three, scoring five goals and conceding just one. Confidence levels are high within the team.

Bayern Munich, on the other hand, had a very poor pre-season. They are also missing a number of key figures in defense and may not see a win on the opening day.

We predict a high-scoring and entertaining draw.
