Goals from French winger Moussa Diaby and young German midfielder Florian Wirtz sealed the deal for Bayer Leverkusen.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction

Borussia Monchengladbach have excelled under Marco Rose, but the former Red Bull Salzburg boss has been heavily linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund. The likes of Jonas Hofmann and Florian Neuhaus have done well so far.

Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, are fourth in the league table, only one point ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach. They have an exciting and talented young attack, including Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haaland.

Both sides have strong squads and can give their rivals problems on their day. We are expecting this game to end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Borussia Monchengladbach 1-1 Borussia Dortmund
