Yans Sommer was immaculate last season and he’s replicating that form this time around as well. Despite coming across a RB Leipzig onslaught, he refused to be fazed, a player who blocked everything thrown at him to pull off a win for the club.
Letting in just five goals past them in six matches, this Bayer Leverkusen has stayed true to its identity this season as well. Traditionally considered one of the toughest clubs to score against, the side has once again taken of the identity of a stringent and impenetrable defence.
Adding to that defensive resillinace, Lars Bender has helped himself to two assists as well to make him the first pick from the side. Sven Bednar and Daley Sinkgraven join up with him with the side always looking good for a cleansheet.
Although Borussia Monchengladbach know they stare at a real challenge today, one player who can guide them towards a win is Jonas Hofmann. He has been the focal point of his side’s attack, a player whose expansive skill set has seen him pull off two goals and four assists.
Lars Stindl who has the two goals as well will partner up with Jonas while the one assist for Kerem Demirbay sees us opt for his services from the home side along with Moussa Diaby.
Scorer of the four goals for Bayer Leverkusen, Lucas Alario has lived upto his reputation this season. The striker has been aided well by Leon Bailey who has strung together the two assists with the two players complimenting each other.
The opposition meanwhile see striker Alassane Plea close out our team for the day courtesy of the one goal he’s thumped home.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Alario’s four goals will see him earn our side’s captaincy while Hofmann is the vice-captain.
Sommer, Lars, Sven, Sinkgraven, Demirbay, Diaby, Hofmann, Stindl, Alario, Bailey, Plea
