Borussia Moenchengladbach wants to add another win to its account, and they come in with high hopes in the clash against Bayer Leverkusen, who is also playing very well. Both sides played excellent matches last week, posting big wins on the road, completely annihilating its rivals. That is something that guarantees an interesting battle at Borussia Park this Sunday.
Borussia (+130) was more than superb on the road against Eintracht Frankfurt, beating the Eagles 1-3 in their matchup. Moench was very confident, without a single flaw, opening the match in the best possible way and stunning the hosts with two early goals.
Just to remind you, Alassane Plea netted with under one minute since the start, and after him, Marcus Thuram added the second goal in the seventh minute. It was a one-two punch of the guests who, in the end, didn’t have any problems with securing the victory and taking all three points.
Previous four games Moench played concluded with over 2.5 goals and both teams to score, and nine of them ended with both teams to net, and over 2.5 goals. And you can see that the mentality of this crew is offensive and open-minded.
Bayer (+175) didn’t lose in the last 11 straight games believed or not. Leverkusen was probably in the best form before the COVID-19 pandemic started. The Die Werkself were smashing everyone in their way, and we need to add that they scored at least three goals in the previous four games.
They were impressive against Werder Bremen’s previous weekend, defeating the hosts in that match with 1-4. It was a rhapsody of the team from Leverkusen who outclassed the hosts.
Previous eight matches this side had all ended with both teams to net, and just one of them didn’t see over 2.5 scores.
Denis Zakaria is not available because of knee problems, while Fabian Johnson picked up a muscle injury and will skip this match and a couple of weeks also.
Two very important pieces of Bayer’s team are ineligible for the event. The first is Kevin Volland’s old injury. Also, Lars Bender won’t appear; only his injury has some connections with his foot.
Head to Head Games
The rivalry between these two sides goes way back. They played once this season, and the result was 1-2 for Moench in Leverkusen. It was the first game with over 2.5 goals since 2017, and the first after five consecutive in which both sides haven’t scored. The last time they met at Borussia-Park, Leverkusen demolished the hosts with 0-5. Even though it was a DFB Pokal match, it was one of the nasty experiences for the hosts’ fans who were outraged following the final whistle.
We expect to see a highly entertaining matchup here with a high number of goals on both sides. We are not going to go into some prognosis regarding the final score, but instead, keep our eyes on the efficiency. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals are set at -133, which is a tempting choice. The same odds are for over 1.5 scores in the second halftime.
