The club prepared for their return to competitive action with a friendly against Salzburg last week, crashing 3-0 to the Austrian side.
The result provided a valuable wake up call to Guardiola and his troops with midfielder Thomas Muller revealing that the club, unbeaten in the league, would need to be at their best to beat Moenchengladbach.
“Gladbach will make our lives very difficult,” Mueller said on Thursday. “We have to snap out of that holiday atmosphere because there are three points up for grabs.”
“Saturday’s defeat was good in a way because it showed us that with just half of our commitment you cannot achieve anything,” said the Germany international.
Bayern are likely to be without Bastian Schweinsteiger after the German midfielder missed training this week due to his ankle injury while Arjen Robben, who turned 30 this week, is back in training after a seven week absence and could be make the match day squad.
Moenchengladbach meanwhile had also been in great form prior to the break, climbing to third in the table on the back of an 8 game unbeaten run.
The club, lost 3-1 to Bayern earlier in the season, have been rock-solid at home winning 8 and drawing one of their nine games this season with only Wolfsburg coming away with a point.
Max Kruse and Raffael look set to continue up front while defenders Tony Jantschke and Roel Brouwers are set to miss out.
Spanish defender Alvaro Dominguez is set to return to the side following a shoulder injury and has revealed that the club are ready for the challenge that lies ahead, telling reporters “”We are ready for Bayern,”
“We have been training hard and we are third in the league after all. We want to give Bayern in their own stadium a run for their money.”
