Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen – Bundesliga Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction
On Saturday, Bundesliga will continue with more football action. Match Day 26 took place successfully over the previous weekend without any issues.
Bayer Leverkusen will make their 27th league appearance of the season. They remain in great form – taking W’s in all, but one of their last six Bundesliga matches; WWWDWW. They are 5th position with 50 points on the league table after scoring 49 times and conceding 31 goals this season. Bayer Leverkusen have 15W, 5D and 6L after 26 league matches. Head coach, Peter Bosz will probably adopt his preferred 4-3-2-1 formation. We can expect star player, Kai Havertz who extended his goal tally against Werder Bremen to score once again this Saturday. He now has 8 goals this season and will be the major source of pain for B. Monchengladbach’s defense.
Meanwhile, Borussia Monchengladbach comes off an impressive 3-1 victory against Frankfurt in their last match. They have lost only one match in their last six Bundesliga games; WDWLWW. Monchengladbach moved from 4th to 3rd place on the Bundesliga table over the weekend and now have 16W, 6D and 4L. With an average of 2.0 goals per game, Monchengladbach have scored a total of 52 goals this season and have 52 points from 26 league appearances. Coach, Marco Rose will likely use a 4-3-1-2 formation against his travelling opponents. Top striker, Alassane Pléa who has 9 goals and 7 assists for Borussia Monchengladbach will be a major source of worry for Bayer Leverkusen.
The first leg of this fixture took place in November, 2019 and ended with Borussia Monchengladbach defeating Bayer Leverkusen 2-1. Oscar Wendt (Borussia Monchengladbach) scored first in the 18th minute before Kevin Volland (Bayer Leverkusen) equalized in the 25th minute. Later on, Marcus Thuram put Borussia Monchengladbach ahead in 42nd minute and the score line remained until full-time.
