Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
All eyes will be on Borussia-Park when Borussia M’gladbach and Bayer Leverkusen face each other in the Bundesliga derby. Die Fohlen experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Leipzig, with the team dropping to 9th position in the standings. Borussia M’gladbach are eager to keep their Europa League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash. Given their attacking potential, we are positive that they will find the net against Bayer Leverkusen.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run. Die Werkself are determined to stay in the Champions League race, and, taking everything into account, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. In the first half of the season Bayer Leverkusen recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Borussia M’gladbach.
