Bundesliga review: Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen

A mouth-watering clash is expected at the Borussia-Park Stadium on Saturday when Borussia Mönchengladbach play host to Bayer Leverkusen in a Bundesliga clash. 

Borussia continued with their impressive run before the league was suspended with a 3-1 win away to Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend to move to third.

Kai Havertz then led Leverkusen in perfect response, seeing off Werder Bremen 4-1 on Monday night to move to within two points behind their weekend opponents. 

It will be the clash of the weekend as both sides battle for a top-four finish.

Can he lead them again away at Borussia-Park?
