Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Analysis and Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach will try to make it two wins from two at the start of 2022 when they host rivals Bayer Leverkusen at Borussia-Park on Saturday evening with kickoff at 6:30 pm.

Borussia Dortmund, who hosted Bayern Munich last Friday, picked up a shock victory last weekend; their opponents returned with a draw against Union Berlin from the winter break.

The absence of Bayern Munich’s first-teamers due to a COVID-19 outbreak led to few predicting that Monchengladbach would pick up three points at the Allianz Arena last Friday evening.

But a five-match winless spell, as well as a poor start to the campaign overall, left fans fearing for their club’s success this season. Even for Hutter’s future at the club—before last week’s remarkable win lifted them into 12th place in the league ahead of matchday 19.

With Bayern Munich enjoying a six-point cushion at the top of the table, there is a danger this season with seeing Leverkusen’s chances of qualifying for Europe. It takes the further strain as they have now let four points slip over their last two matches.

Heading into this weekend’s clash with Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen are in a far better place than their city rivals Dortmund.

With just one point between the two sides and Manuel Baum’s charges occupying the fifth spot at the time of writing, it is an enticing meeting that may ultimately decide third place come to the end of the season.

Borussia Monchengladbach Team News

Veteran Slovenia stopper Hutter could well look to name an unchanged starting lineup on Saturday to the one that defeated Bayern last Friday.

However, Scally and Zakaria are both fit for Saturday’s derby and should take their places in the squad.

Bayer Leverkusen Team News

The Eagles were dealt a blow today as the Bundesliga overlord ruled that none of their loaned-out players would be allowed to face Paderborn on Friday.

The three players, who are away on loan (Paulinho in Augsburg, Nadiem Amiri in Hoffenheim, and Niklas Lomb at Kiel), have been ruled out of the fixture.

This Rhine derby could be an entertaining encounter between two creative and clinical teams in front of goal whilst remaining leaky at the other end of the pitch as well.
