Goals look to be guaranteed in Gladbach's Borussia-Park
Leverkusen won October's Bundesliga meeting 5-1
German Cup third round
Bayer Leverkusen won October’s Bundesliga battle at Borussia Monchengladbach 5-1 and bookmakers are expecting more joy for Heiko Herrlich’s charges and goals galore at Borussia-Park in this German Cup third-round tie.
Leverkusen are 7-5 favourites because that stunning success is one of 13 games unbeaten in all competitions, including six away trips, since a slow start to the season.
Unsurprisingly, after fourth-placed Leverkusen drew 4-4 at Hannover and sixth-placed Gladbach beat visitors Hamburg 3-1 at the weekend, 1-2 is the best price available about over 2.5 goals or both teams to score.
Both teams have scored in Gladbach’s last five home league games, while the net has bulged at both ends in seven of Leverkusen’s nine away games since they needed extra-time to break down Bundesliga 2 Karlsruher in their August cup clash.
Both teams have struck in the sides’ last four meetings and there have been three or more goals in eight of their last ten clashes too.
With Gladbach winning 3-2 at the BayArena last season and coming out on top in their previous three home clashes with Bayer, there seems to be more value in a bet at 9-7 on four or more goals than any wager involving a positive away result.
Gladbach have not lost in front of their fans in four competitive outings since that October 5-1 shocker and the other one of their two victories was a 2-1 success over runaway leaders Bayern Munich.
They had won three of four home games before the October stinker too.
