Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia M’gladbach head into the new Bundesliga campaign in excellent spirits having just recorded a 9-2 aggregate win over Young Boys to reach the Champions League group phase. And while Christoph Kramer and Jan Vestergaard were both signed this summer, it was old guns Raffael and Thorgan Hazard who tore the Swiss defence to pieces in two games and no doubt they will prove a handful for Bayer Leverkusen defenders. Die Werkself have reinforced their ranks with Baumgartlinger, Volland and Dragovic, while selling Christoph Kramer to their next opponents, and they enjoyed a 2-1 triumph over minnows Hauenstein in the DFB Pokal. However, it would appear as though Borussia M’gladbach are in much better form at the moment, which is definitely not a surprise, so while we are going to see a great game of football at Borussia Park, we predict that die Fohlen will emerge victorious in the end.
