Borussia Mönchengladbach: Aiming for top 4 (Recent Form: WWLWDW)
Borussia are on 3rd place in Bundesliga with 52 points, being currently 2 points ahead of 5th Bayer. Therefore, it appears that there will be a fierce battle for the top 4 spots. Borussia host Bayer on Saturday. “We have fond memories of the reverse fixture, but we'll still need a strong performance against Leverkusen. We analysed their game aginst Bremen. They play with a similar intensity to us when they don't have the ball. They are really strong with their Gegenpressing and do a lot of running. That does create spaces though. They like to dominate with the ball and they play at a high tempo, which we need to disrupt. We need to have the ball and the control ourselves. We need to stay compact and be strong at the back,” said coach Marco Rose.
Probable line-ups: Sommer; Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini; Strobl, Neuhaus; Embolo; Hofmann, Plea, Thuram
Bayer Leverkusen: In good shape (Recent Form: WWWWDW)
Bayer sit on 5th position in the standings with 50 points. They are doing well this year, having lost just 1 game in 2020 so far. Now it’s time for an away encounter. “Gladbach played impressively against Frankfurt. They are very strong this season - but so are we. Two very good teams meet. If we want to stay in the top group, we have to take something out of this game. That is our goal,” said Sven Bender.
Probable line-ups: Hradecky; Weiser, Tapsoba, S. Bender, Sinkgraven; Aranguiz, Demirbay; Bellarabi, Paulinho, Diaby; Havertz
THE BETTING VERDICT:
In conclusion, I believe that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Both sides are offensive-minded so perhaps it may be an open match.
