Borussia M’gladbach and Bayer Leverkusen are clashing at Borussia-Park in round 19 of the German Bundesliga. Borussia has beaten Bayern last weekend, and that has given them a lot of confidence, but we will see if they can repeat that. Leverkusen is playing well, they are scoring goals, but they just can close the games lately.

With that win against Bayern, Borussia has climbed to 12th place with 22 points, but they are still far away from any European spot, and they will need a lot more of games like they have against Bayern. Borussia is underperforming on both ends, they are wildly inconsistent, and I think this season will be a huge disappointment for them. Borussia M’gladbach has scored 24 goals, and their leading goalscorer is Hofmann with 7 goals. Stindl has added 5 assists. The good news for Borussia is they don’t have a lot of injuries, but the bad news is that Hofmann is the one injured player. I was expecting a lot more from Borussia this season, and I’m pretty sure they expected it as well, but something things happens, and I think Borussia won’t end up in the Europa League next season.

Leverkusen is now without a win in their last 5 games while losing 3 of those 5 games. In 4 of those 5 games, Leverkusen has scored at least 2 goals, but their defense is just too bad right now. The good news for Leverkusen is they are still very close to the top 4, in 5th place with 29 points. As far as their offense goes, Bayern Leverkusen is firing on all cylinders with 42 scored goals overall, and Schick I their best goalscorer with 17 goals. Wirtz has added 7 assists. I know Leverkusen has some injury problems, but they need to forget that, and they need to start improving their defense because their offense is great. The schedule is not getting any easier for Leverkusen after this game, which means they need a win now to improve their form, and they need to get back on the winning track soon. I think Leverkusen was playing really well in all of their losses, and I think they are on the verge of flipping their form, and there is no better place to do that than this struggling Borussia’s defense.

I know Borussia is coming into this game filled with confidence, but it already happened to them this season that they completely disappear in the next game, and I think it will happen here as well. I’m going with Leverkusen.
