Monchengladbach – Foals on a high following Bayern scalp?

Having wrapped up the first half of the season in dismal form when collecting a solitary point from their final five Bundesliga outings, expectations ahead of their opening assignment of 2022 were understandably low bearing in mind they were in Munich to take on the current Bundesliga leaders and holders. That they went and won, despite trailing early doors, caught everyone by surprise – but should it have?

Victory for The Foals over Bayern marked a sixth success in their last eleven competitive meetings, also slaying the record champions 5-0 in an October cup clash. If only they could play Germany’s finest every week? Gladbach return home in buoyant mood then, though keen to avoid a third successive Borussia-Park defeat. Shipping more goals in these fixtures (9) than the previous eleven at this venue (8 – W7 D2 L2).

Key Stat: Florian Neuhaus has four goals in his last five Bundesliga appearances. On Saturday the midfielder is bidding to score in three consecutive Bundesliga games for the first time in his career.

Leverkusen – Leaking goals and struggling to pick up points?

If the winter break has done wonders for upcoming opponents Gladbach, who begun the new year with a memorable 2-1 victory away to Bayern, then it hasn’t had the same desired affect for Leverkusen. Jonathan Tah’s late header did at least ensure Die Werkself didn’t begin on a loss, the defender salvaging a 2-2 draw at home to Union Berlin that leaves them one point back from fourth-placed Freiburg.

That is now two points garnered from the last twelve available. When including their 1-0 reverse in Hungary in their final Europa League group game, it is five competitive matches without a win since thrashing Greuther Furth 7-1 at the BayArena on 4 December. A defence which has now gone seven league games without a clean sheet clearly isn’t helping, which includes each of their last five on the road (W1 D2 L2).

Key Stat: Having navigated the first seven Bundesliga away games without incurring a single loss (W4 D3), Leverkusen have since lost back-to-back away league games, shipping seven goals in the process.

Monchengladbach Vs Leverkusen Betting Advice

It is for good reason that Gladbach rest in 12 in the Bundesliga standings through 18 rounds, as they have struggled for consistency all season. Last week’s stunning upset of the champions, however, was a demonstration of what this team is capable of when everything clicks. Sadly, that isn’t often enough – and is seldom the case when facing Bayer Leverkusen, who are bidding for a fifth straight head-to-head win.


Monchengladbach Vs bayer Leverkusen – Key Facts:

  • Should Bayer Leverkusen win on Saturday, it will be their fifth in a row against Monchengladbach. Die Werkself have won the last three competitive meetings as the away side, scoring nine and conceding once.
  • Gladbach are coming off successive home defeats. Prior to this, though, The Foals had only been beaten the once in ten previous Bundesliga home games (W7 D2).
  • Likewise, Leverkusen have lost their past two Bundesliga away games. They were previously unbeaten on the road in the competition all season (W4 D3).


Can the visitors be trusted though? As magnificent as they are going forward (only Dortmund and Bayern have scored more), it is seven league games without a clean sheet. The last four have seen them concede at least twice. Meanwhile, Gladbach have only failed to score in one of eight home league games so far. Over 3.5 Goals has landed in four of Gladbach’s last five at home and six of Leverkusen’s last eight away.
