Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen
German DFB Pokal
Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion im BORUSSIA-PARK (Monchengladbach).
Leverkusen managed to end a three-game-without-a-win streak on Sunday when they notched as many as six goals past Werder Bremen away at Wesersatdion. Such a demolishing victory will certainly instill the much-needed confidence into Heiko Herrlich’s men who generally got off to a slow kick off to the new Bundesliga campaign.
Die Werkself now sit 12th in the domestic league ladder. Can they take advantage of the momentum and pick up another result on Wednesday evening when the team is about to travel to Monchengladbach to take on Dieter Hecking’s Borussia?
The hosts opened the new season in a much stronger manner, but they will come into this off the back of a disappointing 3-1 defeat away at Freiburg at the weekend.
Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen Head-to-head

Bayer won two of last three head to head affairs, none of which saw goals scored at both ends.
Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
We expect the end of a low-scoring trend in the most recent set of H2H outings between these two likes. Both managers have deadly line-up of attackers in the final third.
Knowing none of these two teams has been meticulous at the back lately, we just have to expect a goal fest when they take on each other at BORUSSIA-PARK.
Gladbach scored seven goals without conceding a single in back-to-back league wins over Bayern Munich and Mainz. Nonetheless, their streak ended with the aforementioned 3-1 loss at Freiburg.
The Foals still remain a formidable force in front of the home crowd where they won all four Bundesliga games so far in the season.
Bayer shipped two or more goals in four of last five fixtures across competitions, meaning we have to go with Gladbach to net two or more goals at the 1.83 odds as an alternative bet here.
