THE TEAM NEWS

BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH

  • Borussia Monchengladbach earned an eye-catching victory on the road at Eintracht Frankfurt last week and were able to leapfrog RB Leipzig into third spot as they kept their title hopes alive.
  • Gladbach wasted no time on their return to action as Alassane Plea opened the scoring within the first minute of the match before Marcus Thuram doubled the lead in the seventh minute with Ramy Bensebaini adding a third from the spot in the second half although they did concede in the final 10 minutes.
  • Despite last week’s impressive win, Gladbach will be hoping that they will not be forced into altering their starting XI after goalscorer Thuram was forced to leave the field with a knock last week.

BAYER LEVERKUSEN

  • Bayer Leverkusen carried on where they left off before the Bundesliga was temporarily suspended as they swept Werder Bremen aside to keep the pressure on the top four but this shapes as a crucial contest for them as they travel to one of their rivals.
  • Kai Havertz scored either side of a Bremen effort before Mitchell Weiser and Kerem Demirbay wrapped up the win with goals in the second half as Leverkusen scored four goals for the second game in succession.
  • They are now unbeaten in their last six Bundesliga matches and will be full of confident ahead of this trip and they could be boosted by the return of Kevin Volland, Lars Bender and Wendell with the trio all in with a shout of proving their fitness.

THE PREDICTION

Borussia Monchengladbach host Bayer Leverkusen in what should be an enthralling contest between two attack-minded teams challenging for the top four. Gladbach have only lost two games on home soil in the Bundesliga so far this season while Leverkusen have been solid on the road with them coming into this in good form. This game could go either way but expect plenty of intent from both teams and with so much attacking talent on show, it is likely that there will be goals at either end.
