Leverkusen is one of only two teams (Wolfsburg) without a defeat in Bundesliga so far, and they are in a three-game winning run after beating Freiburg 4-2 on the road in the previous round. Bayer bounced back from the Europa League loss to Slavia Prague and beat Hapoel Beer Sheva 4-2 on the road, and is in a strong position to advance to the knockout stage. In the Bundesliga, Leverkusen is in 4th place with 12 points from six matches.

Monchengladbach, on the other side, is only a point behind after defeating RB Leipzig at home last time out, while they are doing an excellent job in the Champions League and are currently top of the group ahead of Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, and Inter. They destroyed the Ukrainian champions 6-0 on the road, and if they beat them again in the next round, Marco Rose’s side will have a great chance to make it to the knockout phase.

Leverkusen Team News and Stats

Leverkusen improved a lot on offense after a relatively inefficient start of the season. They scored 17 goals in the last five matches and failed to find the back of the net in that span (1-0 loss to Slavia Prague). That has to be a concern for the visitors who allowed 2+ goals in four matches this term but managed to keep the net intact in the previous two.

When it comes to defense, though, Bayer kept the clean sheet on just two occasions so far in the campaign, despite the fact that they conceded only five goals in six Bundesliga matches. Going back to their attack again, Leverkusen found the back of the net in each of four home games this term.

Peter Bosz cannot count on Aranguiz (muscle), Santiago Arias (broken shinbone), Paulinho (knee), and Patrik Schick (thigh).

Borussia Monchengladbach Team News and Stats

Gladbach lost 3-0 to Dortmund on the opening day of Bundesliga and didn’t suffer a single defeat since, winning four of the following eight games. The Foals won the last two league matches over Mainz and Leipzig, while they quickly forgot that they dropped points against Real Madrid in the Champions League despite having a 2-0 lead late in the game with a thumping 6-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine.

Borussia rarely keeps a clean sheet thus far in the campaign, but they failed to score in just one game (that loss to Dortmund). They scored 2+ goals in seven of ten games in all competitions this term, which is quite amazing. With seven goals scored and none conceded in the past two matches, Monchengladbach will be a serious rival to Leverkusen on Sunday.

Marco Rose will be without Louis Jordan Beyer (illness), Andreas Poulsen (shoulder), and Denis Zakaria (knee).

Bayer Leverkusen vs. Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Pick

Pick
  • BTTS YES
    -167

Each side recorded five wins in the previous ten H2H encounters, and we didn’t have a draw in this fixture since December 2014. That means we’re going to have a very unpredictable game that could easily go either way. That being said, betting on 1X2 is not recommendable, so I am going with goals in this one. Despite the fact that five of the previous seven H2H duels failed to provide goals on both sides, the last two did, and I am going with BTTS.
