Borussia Mönchengladbach climbed the podium after the victory in Frankfurt, but is only 2 points away from the 5th place, which is not in the Champions League and which is … Bayer Leverkusen. With a success in Saturday’s match, “Die Fohlen” would make 55 points, could even climb to the 2nd position, but most importantly, it would have 5 points ahead of “aspirin”. “Die Borussen” has achieved 3 successes in the last 4 stages and has 8 in a row GG. In the matches played at home he had 9 victories, 2 draws, 2 failures, scored 16 goals and received 14. Bayer Leverkusen is just one point away from the 4th place, the last in the Champions League, on which RB Leipzig is located. “Die Werkself” have 5 wins in the last 6 rounds and 10 games in a row in the Bundesliga championship in which they have scored at least one goal. “Aspirinele” had 8 away matches, 1 draw and 4 defeats in the away matches, scored 24 goals and scored 18.
It should be noted that Borussia Mönchengladbach has at home 4 victories in the last 5 matches played with Bayer Leverkusen and that in the round they won on “Bayer Arena” with 2-1 or that last season they won both in the round and in the return. It will be a balanced match between two teams fighting for a Champions League place. I recommend you bet that at the break or at the end it will be equal.
