Borussia Moenchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Prediction

By William Hall

Two of the most inform sides go head to head this weekend a Borussia M'Gladbach welcome Bayer Leverkusen to Borussia Park in the Bundesliga. M'gladbach come into this one off the back of three wins in their last four games, most recently beating struggling Werder Bremen 2-0 away from home. Bayer Leverkusen made it back to back draws on the weekend after being pegged back by Wolfsburg on home soil in a thrilling 2-2 draw. With both sides in good form and looking to make a statement in the league this season, we could be in for an entertaining watch this weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Both sides come into this game in excellent form and will go into this one feeling very confident they can both get something from the game. Whenever these two teams play each other, there tends to be a lot of goals involved. In fact, in all of their last five meetings, the over 2.5 goals market has been smashed, and I can see it happening once again on Saturday afternoon. Although Bayer Leverkusen's recent form has been very impressive, when you look at their away form in the Bundesliga you wouldn't be as impressed with the side losing three of their last four games and drawing the other. Bar Bayern Munich, this is probably one of the hardest teams they have come up against in those four games, making it hard to say they will go out and get a win this weekend.

Borussia Moenchengladbach Preview

Borussia M'gladbach will be happy with how the last few weeks have gone after losing just once in their previous five, winning three and drawing the other. They will see this as an excellent opportunity to start pushing on, and with the side being just a point of fourth and two of a second, they have every chance of challenging the top teams this season. However, if they are to do that they will need to go and win games like this. The 2-0 win over Werder Bremen last time out showed how far they had come as last season they would go into that game feeling they had already got the three points and then get beat. It was two first-half goals which won the game for the side and in truth, they could have won by more if they had taken their chances. Another performance like that this weekend and they should have enough to get another win.

Borussia Moenchengladbach Team News

Borussia M'gladbach look as if they will defiantly be without four this weekend with Jona Hofmann (bttocks injury), Raul Marcelo Bobadilla (hip injury), Laszlo Benes (broken foot) and Tabias Strobl (ACL) all out. Josip Drmic (knee injury) and Mamadou Doucoure (thigh injury) are both back in training and could make a return to action this weekend.

Bayer Leverkusen Preview

Bayer Leverkusen also come into this one with just one defeat in their last five, winning two and drawing two. Those two draws have come back to back int their previous couple of matches which will be a bit frustrating for the team. The first one away to Schalke is a good result and one they would have taken before the game. However, the 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg last time would have been bitterly annoying for the team after going ahead twice in the match. A reaction will be wanted this weekend, and I for one am not writing off them delivering this weekend. Kevin Volland has been the sides biggest threat this season, scoring four goals in eight games. But with the German not scoring in his last two, it seems the goals have dried up very quickly. This is something the player will want to put right this weekend and get back on the scoresheet.

Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Bayer Leverkusen will be without just the two this weekend with Cahrles Aranguiz (calf injury) and Tin Jedvaj (shin injury) sidelined.
