Monchengladbach v Bayer Leverkusen Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 7th February 2014

Monchengladbach will be looking at this game as a real chance to reduce the gap over their visitors Bayer Leverkusen who are currently 7pts ahead of them in the Bundesliga table, but Sami Hyypiä’s side have not been in great form recently having lost three of their previous five league games and the hosts will obviously see this as a great opportunity to make that defeat number four.

Previous encounters between these two sides over the years has seen plenty of action and goals scored and with both clubs desperate to secure a Champions League place next season, I fully expect this game to follow suit and as such we look in for a real treat come friday night.

Monchengladbach Team News:

Roel Brouwers and Martin Stranzl will both be unavailable for the hosts as they continue to recover from respective injuries and it doesn’t look likely that Mahmoud Dahoud will feature either having only recently returned back to training. Julian Korb is also unavailable as he serves a one match suspension.

Bayer Leverkusen Team News:

Sebastian Boenisch and Robbie Kruse both remain unavailable for the visitors as they continue to receive treatment for respective injury problems, but other than these two players manager Sami Hyypiä has a full squad to choose his starting lineup from.

Friday night’s game from the Borussia Park Stadium will become the 65th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Monchengladbach have won 16 times (9 at the Borussia Park Stadium), Bayer Leverkusen have won 23 times (5 at the Borussia Park Stadium) and there has been 25 draws (18 at the Borussia Park Stadium).

The head to head statistics table below shows the last 5 matches played between the two sides and shows neither side with any clear advantage having both won a game each and drawing the remaining 3.

24/08/13 BUN Bayer Leverkusen – Monchengladbach 4 : 2
09/02/13 BUN Monchengladbach – Bayer Leverkusen 3 : 3
23/09/12 BUN Bayer Leverkusen – Monchengladbach 1 : 1

Average Goals Per Game?

215 goals have been scored during the previous 64 matches which gives us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 3.35 and with 106 goals having been scored in the 32 matches played at the Borussia Park Stadium we are provided with an average goals per game statistic of 3.31.

Both average goals per game statistics strongly suggest that we should be in store for a very exciting game with at least 3 goals scored during this one on friday night.

Monchengladbach have a slight advantage on the recent form statistics having managed to win 3 and lose 2 of their last 5 matches played. Bayer Leverkusen have managed 2 victories during their last 5 played of which they have lost 2 and drawn 1.

Monchengladbach v Bayer Leverkusen Match Betting Odds Market.

Monchengladbach were in decent form until their last two matches, of which they lost both. But the online bookmakers are expecting them to bounce back to form in this game on friday night as they have the hosts priced up as the clear favourites at odds of 7/4 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw has occurred three times in the last three meetings between the two clubs and for me is definitely worth getting on as your main cover bet at generous odds of 5/2 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Bayer Leverkusen are a couple of places higher than their hosts in the Bundesliga table, but their form of late has not been very inspiring but the online bookmakers seem to think they might win this game by offering up a best price of 9/5 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

Monchengladbach v Bayer Leverkusen Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I am finding this extremely difficult to choose a confident winner of this game as there are arguments for both clubs chances, but if I had to choose, then it would be Monchengladbach as not only do they have the all important home advantage, they also have a decent record over Bayer Leverkusen at the Borussia Park Stadium and with their visitors having had a real tough few weeks lately, this is a very good chance for Monchengladbach to close the gap on their visitors in the league table.

As the previous head to head statistics show above in this post, the Draw also seems well worth being on here as with three of the last five meetings between the two clubs having finished all square, there is obviously a very strong chance that could become number four on friday night as neither club can really afford to lose this game if they want to secure a Champions League place for next season.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting this match to see plenty of goals scored and so betting markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Over 2.5 Goals and certain Anytime Goalscorer’s like Monchegladbach’s Max Kruse and Bayer Leverkusen’s Stefan Kiessling who are both in excellent goal scoring form this season all look well worth a closer look, but I am going to go with the hosts to win this game and the game to see at least 3 goals scored.
