Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: 22 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
The World Cup break arrived at the worst possible moment for Bayer Leverkusen who have just started to shape up with three wins on the bounce.
Die Werkself have notched nine goals in the process, including five in the home drubbing of second-placed Union Berlin in early-November.
Xabi Alonso’s men will be looking to translate this spell of form into the post-World Cup period. Nevertheless, the restart will be rough for them with the fixtures against Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund in two of the next three rounds.
Monchengladbach can be a very tricky opposition when they play at Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK.
They won six of eight league outings on the home patch this term. Monchengladbach bagged seven goals in the previous two Bundesliga matches in front of their fans, comprehensive wins over Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund.
The team led by Daniel Farke currently occupy the 8th position in the Bundesliga table. They are just three points below sixth-placed Borussia Dortmund but also only four points above Baer Leverkusen in the 12th position.
Die Werkself shipped 15 goals in 7 league outings away from home this season. Given how impressive Monchengladbach have been in the final third before the World Cup break, we can see some joy for the hosts here.
