Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen: Preview and Predictions

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen
2018/19 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadion im Borussia- Park (Monchengladbach).

The start of the German Bundesliga season is upon us and after a whole host of games on Saturday afternoon, Borussia Monchengladbach will take on Bayer Leverkusen in this early evening kick off.

Both clubs are very proud and this has the potential to be a cracking game. We expect goals because both coaches like to go for the attack mode and it would not be a surprise to see the home team at least start with three in the back and play an attacking formation.

As for Leverkusen they might adapt to their diamond formation and try to earn all three points away from home. These two teams have a rich history of football and playing each other and the stadium is sure to be packed for a game which at least on paper promises to deliver.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction

Our main bet here will be to see both teams to score and we will follow this up with seeing over 2.5 goals. History says this fixture has goals in it and at this stage of the season there isn’t very much between the teams in terms of quality.

We should expect a quick start and all pre match tactics to go out of the window in what should be a very atmospheric and friendly setting at least with the fans but with the players there will be a big expected rivalry on the pitch.
