Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen

, KO: 14:30 Mar 6, 2021, Borussia-Park
Bayer Leverkusen

Two teams in desperate need of a positive result face each other as Bayer Leverkusen host Borussia Monchengladbach in a German Bundesliga clash at Borussia-Park. Both sides have been on lengthy winless runs and could use a turn around in fortunes.

Borussia Monchengladbach suffered a 3-2 defeat at Leipzig in their previous Bundesliga fixture. They took a three-goal lead early in the contest but a second half capitulation saw them concede three times, including a 90th minute winner.

Die Fohden have fallen into a rut since the confirmation that manager Marco Rose will depart for Borussia Dortmund in the summer. They are winless in their last five matches, a run that has seen them slip to ninth on the table, seven points off the UEFA Champions League places.

Monchengladbach’s success in recent years has been built on a superb home record but that seems to have disintegrated this season without the support of their fans. They have lost their last two home matches but can count Bayern Munich and Dortmund among their recent scalps at Borussia-Park.

Bayer Leverkusen were also beaten in their last Bundesliga fixture as they lost 2-1 at home to Freiburg. They fell two goals down before Leon Bailey pulled one back midway through the second half.

Leverkusen’s hopes of securing Champions League football now rest firmly on a top four finish after crashing out of the Europa League. They are sixth on the table, five points behind Eintracht Frankfurt in fourth place.

Peter Bosz's men led the Bundesliga at some point this season, but have significantly dipped since the turn of the year. They have claimed just two Bundesliga wins in 2021 and have drawn two of their last three matches.
