Bet Sunday Bundesliga: Miller picks Bayer Leverkusen vs Borussia Monchengladbach with a pair of plays
Where and when to watch: Bayer Leverkusen vs. Borussia Monchengladbach, 12 pm ET on ESPN+
Two of Germany’s best battle Sunday, as Leverkusen hosts Monchengladbach in Bundesliga action
After yesterday’s instant classic at the top of the Bundesliga table, the final game of the league before the last international break until the end of March (thank you FIFA) should be a classic as well, between two European teams looking to make a run into the top four.
Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach both come in off of impressive UEFA wins: Leverkusen went to Israel and won 4-2 in the Europa League, while Monchengladbach posted the most impressive victory of the Champions League so far, a 6-0 destruction of Skakhtar in Ukraine.
The away team has won the last four times these two have played, and five of the last seven. Leverkusen has a 4-3 lead over that seven-game run, so it is tight.
I think Mochengladbach is slightly the better side, and could keep the away win trend alive.
