Kai Havertz is likely to be the key influencer for Borussia Monchengladbach versus Bayer Leverkusen this weekend, as fans will be treated to a third versus fifth-place matchup that could decide a Champions League place.
The 20-year-old is one of the Bundesliga’s most exciting young prospects and has returned in fine form by scoring a brace in his first game back, as Leverkusen beat Werder Bremen 4-1.
Havertz now has eight goals for the season and has once again been the standout talent for the German giants this campaign. The brace puts the attacking forward one goal behind his side's top goal scorer, Kevin Volland, who remains sidelined through injury.
This, just as it did against Bremen, will most likely mean the young German will lead the line for Leverkusen in this must-win battle.
Leverkusen will be looking at Havertz to provide the goals and performance they will need to secure a place in the Champions League next season, and Sky Bet have given the German international the high odds of 17/10 to score this weekend.
Now with four goals in his previous three games across all competitions, Havertz is surely a player to look out for going into Leverkusen’s most important fixture for the remainder of the season.
