Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayer Leverkusen will look to build on a hard-fought 3-2 win over Leipzig when they take on Borussia M’gladbach on Saturday afternoon. Xabi Alonso’s men are on the right track to win the Bundesliga trophy, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to put an end to Bayern Munich’s dominance in the German top flight. All Edmond Tapsoba, Odilon Kossounou, and Amine Adli are on international duty, while Jonathan Tah misses out through suspension. In Victor Boniface’s absence, Czech Republic international Patrik Schick will keep his place up front.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Augsburg, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the league leaders. As for the visiting team, Ko Itakura is on international duty, while all Rocco Reitz, Tomas Cvancara, Maximilian Wober, Lukas Ullrich, Hannes Wolf, and Jonas Omlin are sidelined with injuries.
