One of the most exciting matches in the Bundesliga this week is definitely the one between Gladbach and Bayer Leverkusen. Gladbach are coming off a really nice win on the road against Frankfurt, while Bayer Leverkusen also did a great job against Werder Bremen.
Gladbach (16-6-4) did a really good job in their first match after the break, as they quickly grabbed their opponents by the throat. They scored two quick goals in the first seven minutes of the match, then scored another at the 73rd minute to eventually win that match by 3-1. Gladbach have been pretty solid in 2020, losing just one of their last eight matches (5-1-2). However, they have failed to keep a single clean sheet in that span. They are 3rd in the league table with 52 points, just six behind the top spot. Moreover, they have a 9-2-2 record at home but have only kept two clean sheets there.
Bayer Leverkusen (15-6-5) also took an early lead against Werder Bremen, only to be equalizes shortly after. However, they went on to score three more goals and beat their opponents by 4-1. That was their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, as they have also won 10 of their last 11 matches (10-0-1). But they only kept two clean sheets in the process. Bayer Leverkusen are now sitting at the 5th spot of the league table with 50 points, two behind the 3rd Gladbach. They have the 3rd best away record in the league (8-4-1), going undefeated in their last five (4-0-1) but failing to keep a clean sheet.
Gladbach did great to win by 2-1 on the road in the reverse match earlier in the season, and have now won each of the last three Bundesliga matches against Bayer Leverkusen. But Bayer Leverkusen have won three of their last four matches in this venue. In any case, looking at how the two have performed so far in the season, I expect goals from both sides and Over 3 Goals.
