Bayer Leverkusen vs Borussia Monchengladbach
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 10 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
The most interesting clash of the day will be played at BayArena where Bayer Leverkusen will try and break into the top four in the league ladder with a win over Borussia Monchengladbach. Nonetheless, the visitors have calculations of their won being just six points below in the Bundesliga standings and an upset here would get them back into the contest for the European football next term.
Gladbach have disappointed their fans with a 2-2 draw against the bottom-half Werder Bremen at home last time out. The Foals got off to a dream start in that fixture netting two goals early on, but they’ve allowed Werder to make it all square late in the second half to drop two super important points in the battle for European spots.
The slip-up has certainly affected team’s atmosphere ahead of a tough trip to Leverkusen where they will play the highly-motivated side which has defeated Wolfsburg 1-2 on the road last time out. Die Werkself have thus instantly recovered f4rom a disappointing 0-2 loss to Schalke 04 at home. Lucas Alario and Julian Brandt were on target at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA and they are expected to lead Leverkusen’s troops on the final third in the last game of the day on Saturday as well.
