On Saturday evening, Monchengladbach hosts Bayer Leverkusen clash at Borussia Park, as the two teams look for maximum points in gameweek two of the Bundesliga.Monchengladbach form guide
The Foals started the new Bundesliga campaign with a highly entertaining 4-4 draw at Augsburg. The result means Gladbach are unbeaten in their last three matches in the Bundesliga. However, they have won just two of their previous eight games in the German top flight.
Despite their recent inconsistent league form, Monchengladbach have scored at least two goals in the previous five matches in the Bundesliga.
Monchengladbach have a decent recent home record in the German top flight, winning three of their last four league matches. The Foals have been prolific on home soil in the Bundesliga, scoring at least two goals in five of their previous seven games, having also kept clean sheets in three of their last four league matches in front of their own fans.Bayer Leverkusen form guide
Die Werkself recorded a 3-2 home victory over RB Leipzig on the opening weekend of the Bundesliga campaign. The win actually ended a five-game winless run in the Bundesliga for the visitors.
However, the opening game continued a high-scoring trend for Bayer in the German top flight, as four of their last five matches in the Bundesliga have produced over 2.5 goals.
Xabi Alonso’s team have failed to win any of their previous four away games in the Bundesliga, although a 3-0 defeat at Bochum in their last away match in the league ended a run of seven games without loss on their travels.
Uncharacteristically for Bayer, they have failed to score in three of their last four away games in the Bundesliga.What am I backing?
This game has goals written all over it. Although Bayer has been impotent in attack on their recent travels, their attack looked in dangerous form against Leipzig. Gladbach were also strong in attack on the opening day. Therefore, the bet I am backing over 2.5 goals scored.
