This Saturday, May 7, 2016 (6:30 AM Pacific) Mexican star Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez returns to action when his team Bayer Leverkusen visit Borussia Mönchengladbach. This Bundesliga Week 33 match will be played without much pressure by Leverkusen as they qualified into the Champions League in their win last week against Hertha BSC. On the contrary, M’Gladbach must win in order to remain in the fight to reach the playoff of that European tournament.
With two games left to play this season, Leverkusen can finally breathe and celebrate that noone will remove them from their 3rd place in the table standings. The team coached by Roger Schmidt has closed the season in superb fashion where they have won their last seven league games in consecutive manner.
This wonderful statistic has allowed Leverkusen to separate themselves from the hoard of teams who were battling for the league’s 3rd place behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Although their Champions League seed secured, Bayer 04 will be a difficult opponent to the ‘Die Fohlen’ who must win at all costs in order to retain their current 4th place which would allow them to play a Champions League wild-card series.
Chicharito will attempt to lead his team into their eight consecutive victory which would allow Leverkusen to reach 60 points this season. With nothing on the line, this match could be difficult for his team as they could lack motivation or pressure to win the match.
