Leverkusen is looking strong on home soil

Bayer Leverkusen will look to climb to the Conference League berth when they take on Gladbach on Matchday 33. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and bonuses for the German top-flight league.

Leverkusen: Out of the Europa League

Leverkusen’s top-six hopes hit a roadblock on Matchday 31 as they lost 2-1 at home to Rhine rivals Cologne. The possibility of winning the Europa League offers Xabi Alonso’s side another route through to continental competition but they failed to beat AS Roma so they must now focus on the final two games of the domestic season.

During the last six weeks, they prioritized their Europa League run and won just one of their previous five league games. Last weekend they were kept to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Stuttgart.

Leverkusen is eager to once again represent Germany in European competitions next season and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play Gladbach is the perfect opponent for the hosts to return to winning ways and maintain the pressure on Wolfsburg.

All Odilon Koussounou, Robert Andrich, Karim Bellarabi, Patrik Schick, Andrey Lunev, and Charles Aranguiz remain on the sidelines with injuries. Alonso now has Leverkusen’s coals burning thanks to the lightning-quick pairing of Jeremie Frimpong and Moussa Diaby. Despite their poor run of form, they are truly amazing, and we will continue to include them in our Bundesliga picks and parlays. Leverkusen fans will hope that a rip-roaring restart will continue and that their team can chase down a top-six finish to secure a Conference League spot.

Gladbach: Inconsistency at its best

Gladbach heads into the season finale with a lack of motivation and given their difficulties at the back, we expect them to return home empty-handed so if you’re betting online you should fade them here. To make things even worse for the away side, defender Ramy Bensebaini is banned for the match, while both Jonas Omlin and Borges Sanches miss out with injuries.

The visitors are currently sitting at 11th in the standings and are having an unimpressive form. It is fair to say that Borussia MG could, and probably should have scored more goals this season because they are fully packed with talented players in the attacking line.

In terms of the bigger picture, Daniel Farke’s troops have recorded ten wins, nine draws, and 12 defeats this season, underlining the team’s inconsistency. Following news of Lars Stindl’s planned exit, Gladbach has announced another two players will follow the captain out of the club.

Marcus Thuram and Ramy Bensebaini will leave Borussia Monchengladbach once their contracts expire at the end of the season. Thuram, son of former France defender Lilian Thuram, has caught the interest of clubs around Europe following a prolific campaign.

Leverkusen vs Gladbach Head-to-Head

Gladbach makes the trip to Leverkusen with nothing left to play for after a 5-2 defeat at Borussia Dortmund all but ended their hopes of a top-half finish. They’ve won just one of their last 18 league matches away from home conceding 35 goals in the process. Only relegation-threatened Bochum and Hertha Berlin have earned fewer points on their travels than Gladbach. They’ve lost six consecutive Bundesliga mutual encounters against Leverkusen, and another defeat here would see the hosts do the double over them for a third consecutive season. Gladbach has allowed 13 away goals between the final 15 minutes of the games this season, the joint-worst return in the division.

Leverkusen vs Gladbach Picks and Prediction

The hosts enter this clash as heavy favorites being priced at -210 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Bundesliga odds while the goal line is set at 3½.

Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso has encouraged his side to cheer up and keep going after they were eliminated from the Europa League by AS Roma on Thursday. They gave everything but they were unlucky not to find the back of the net recording 33 goal attempts and seven shots on target. Leverkusen sits outside of the European places by just a single goal, so reigniting their usually devastating attack could be the key to success in the final two weeks of the season. We expect them to return to winning ways and start scoring goals against a side that has nothing to play for so for our official pick we will combine the moneyline with the goals market.

The Leverkusen are listed at -210 in our Vegas Bundesliga lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Leverkusen, you have a chance to win $48. The Gladbach are +480, offering a chance to win $480 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Leverkusen a 67.74% chance to win, with Gladbach at 17.24%.
