With just one loss in their last five league games, Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to keep up their good form when they host Borussia M’gladbach at the BayArena in the 18th round of the German Bundesliga.
The hosts have been in a relatively solid form in the last few weeks in the German top flight. Leverkusen have lost only one game in their last five league fixtures. The team have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their Bundesliga action was against Hertha BSC at home where they won 3-1.
Leverkusen are currently sitting in the 8th place in the Bundesliga table with 24 points from 7 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. They have scored 26 goals and conceded 25 since the start of the season.
Jonathan Tah will replace the injured Aleksandar Dragovic at centre-back. Charles Aránguiz should return from a calf injury to replace Julian Baumgartlinger in central midfield.
The visitors are in a lower form and also in a lower league table position than the hosts. Borussia M’gladbach starter the season on the right foot but they have dropped many points in recent games. The team have won only one game in their last five league actions. They have collected 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last match was against Darmstadt away from home where they drew 0-0.
M’gladbach are sitting in the 14th place in the league table with 17 points from 4 wins, 5 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 15 goals and conceded 25 since the start of the season.
Timothée Kolodziejczak is suffering from the flu and could be forced to miss out here.
Patrick Herrmann could return from injury, but it is probably too early for him to start already.
