6 days ago: Borussia Monchengladbach 3 - 0 over Bayer Leverkusen

by Sam Tighe of England, Lead Writer at B/R, specialising in the Premier League, tactical analysis and scouting reports:

"In what was, definitively, the biggest game of this past weekend, Bayer Leverkusen lost 3-0 to Borussia Monchengladbach and in doing so kissed goodbye to their automatic UEFA Champions League hopes. Roger Schmidt's men will have to go through the pre-qualifiers early in the 2015-16 season.

There's been little to split the two sides this season, so to see the scoreline unfold so categorically in one direction was a huge surprise. It's hardly back-to-the-drawing-board stuff, but with Borussia Dortmund likely to be a lot better next year, Leverkusen need to get the summer spot on."

"What a win, what a seismic result for Borussia Monchengladbach! The 3-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen hands Lucien Favre's men a sizable advantage in the race for an automatic Champions League spot. They will still harbour hopes of usurping Wolfsburg in second but can at least rest assured they're getting third. Patrick Herrmann and Fabian Johnson, from the flanks, were devastating in this match."

Gladbach and Wolfsburg with the auto qualifiers. Should make UCL group stages interesting with new German blood. Bundesliga is 11/11 in qualifying from group stage for the knockout round the last three years. Would be impressive to continue that trend with a couple new teams.
