Two Bundesliga clubs that were eliminated from the Champions League earlier in the week are set to play against each other in the German League.
Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Moenchengladbach will look forward to vent some of their Champions League frustration on Saturday.
Although both clubs have failed to reach the knockout stages Moenchengladbach will be the more disappointed team with their European hopes vanquished entirely, while Leverkusen still can play in the Europa League.
However, the club is the more exciting team in the Bundesliga, standing at third place, 14 points behind Bayern Munich and 9 behind Borussia Dortmund.
Coming off a 3-1 victory against the league leaders last week, Andre Schubert’s side now holds an unbeaten streak of 10 matches.
This is simply amazing for a team that suffered 5 straight defeats at the start of the new Bundesliga season.
Meanwhile, Leverkusen started big but now stagnates at eighth place, with Coach Roger Schmidt reportedly “feeling the heat.”
The team creates few chances and scores even less goals, suffering six defeats – nearly as many as their last season.
