Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Borussia Monchengladbach produced a fantastic performance on the last match-day away at Eintracht Frankfurt to have all three-points safely in the bag. They were indeed the better side for large parts of the game and looked good value for the win.

Starting the game on the front foot, Die Fohlen opened the scoring inside four minutes before doubling their lead three minutes later to place them in a very comfortable spot. Monchengladbach dominated proceedings throughout the game, leaving the Frankfurt defense chasing shadows.

A late penalty saw the away side put the game to bed before the hosts pulled back a goal, albeit, a consolation. The travelling supporters were in fine voice all through as they witnessed their side dispatch Frankfurt with ease. However, they will be gutted for their inability to keep a clean sheet.

Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, enjoyed similar success last time out against Werder Bremen on the road, posting a massive 4-1 win on the scorecard. It was one-way traffic at the Weser Stadium as the home side struggled to get their mitts about the game.

Now, both teams will be heading into this fixture on a high, on the back of convincing wins in their respective games. The outcome of this fixture is sure to have a bearing on which teams qualify for next season’s Champions League and Europa League. A fiercely-contested affair is expected at Borussia-Park.

Monchengladbach have turned their home ground into something of a fortress this season, squeezing out nine wins, two draws and two losses from their 13 home games so far. In fact, they have admitted defeat just once in their last eight league games across all venues.

The visiting contingent are on a fantastic run of their own, having failed to deliver a win just once from their previous six encounters. Also, they are ranked as the third-best away side within the cluster with Die Werkself proving to be unstoppable on their travels. With an away record of eight wins, a draw and four losses, they are in with a shout here.
