Gladbach vs Leverkusen by Marlo
Leverkusen find themselves 2nd behind the ever improving Bayern Munich outfit. They better try to preserve 2nd spot because their chances of closing the gap and overtaking them are next to nothing. They trail by 13 pts already having only played 19 games and I can only see this widening.
Moenchengladbach (say that three times!) will entertain Leverkusen with the hope of rising above Schalke and climbing into top 4, at least temporarily.
I can see both teams scoring here, a stat that would have landed in 5/5 of the last meetings between these two teams. I can't bring myself to trust Leverkusen this season despite their success, mostly which can be attributed also the inconsistency of Dortmund. If Leverkusen let down backers away to Freiburg (a relegation candidate), I see no reason to back them here. Safer punts can be over 1.5 Leverkusen goals or time of first Leverkusen goal in play.
Potent attacks and inconsistent defences suggest goals and with a history that agrees I am inclined to follow.
It's a toss up between both teams to score or over 2.5 goals. I don't have a coin with me so I will go for both teams to score.
Carb is suspended for Dortmund. For Leverkusen, Sam is nearing fitness and Reinartz is out.
