Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen

“This is arguably the best match-up of the weekend between to in-form, high-scoring sides. Monchengladbach’s fast start saw them overcome Frankfurt, whilst Leverkusen controlled proceedings with ease against Werder Bremen. These sides have not drawn against each other since 2014 and a quick start to this one could be crucial. Leverkusen are just as solid away from home as BMG are at Borussia Park. At slight favourites, the hosts could edge this one but this could go either way.”

Foals to maintain title chasing form?

The North-Rhine Westphalia club flew out of the traps on their Bundesliga return. Two quick fire goals inside the opening minutes against Frankfurt helped secure their 16th league win of the season. The Foals will be confident of continuing this form til the end of the season, but face a much sterner test in Leverkusen. They will need to rely on their sound record of finding the net.

Apart from the opening home game of the season against Schalke, BMG have scored in every home Bundesliga. However, 85% of their home ties have seen both teams score. They have only kept just clean sheets in the league at Borussia Park this season. Seven of their last eight games has seen a goal scored or conceded after the 80th minute mark (2 GF, 5 GA).

Leverkusen to break the top 4?

Leverkusen made simple work of Werder Bremen on their return on Monday. The talented Kai Havertz lead the scoring in a 4-1 victory for Peter Bosz’s side who now sit just outside the top 4. They face another away match this weekend, however with such a strong away record, it might not be a problem. Bayer have the joint-second best away record with an impressive eight away wins.

In their last nine league games, Leverkusen have scored or conceded at least one goal in the first half. 20 first half goals in the last nine league games (14 GF, 6 GA) could mean a fast start in this one. They are on their longest unbeaten run of the season, picking up points in six league matches. B04 average 1.85 goals scored away from home.
