Bayer Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim Match Preview
Bayer Leverkusen host Hoffenheim for their Matchday 3 Bundesliga clash on Saturday afternoon on the back of a three-match winning streak early in the new campaign, hoping to build on their high-scoring displays and keep up with the top of the table – now sitting 5th only for their goal difference.
Die Werkself have beaten Alemannia Aachen (1-4) in DFB Pokal and built on the success with similarly exciting wins over Paderborn (3-2) and Fortuna Dusseldorf (1-3) in Bundesliga, as Kevin Volland led the attacking line with two goals along the way. Still, they’ve been conceding on the regular and this could be more worrying for Peter Bosz.
Indeed, Hoffenheim should prove more of a challenge at BayArena as they look for their third win over Leverkusen in a row. While they’ve had more troubles early on, we’ve seen them get a real boost to their confidence in a 3-2 win over Werder Bremen last week and we expect them in a great mood on the day.
Die Kraichgauer only edged past Wurzburger Kickers on penalties after a 3-3 draw in DFB Pokal and saw a narrow 1-0 loss at Eintracht Frankfurt on the opening day of their Bundesliga campaign, which will make this all the more important step towards consistency. Still, snatching all three points might be too much to expect from them at this point.
We will still back them to leave unbeaten as we stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in a Draw priced at 19/5 with William Hill. We’ve seen both struggling to keep it together at the back and this could prove costly on either end.
With that in mind, we’re now also going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/9 with bet365. The sides scored a combined total of nine and conceded six in their first two outings this term and this now feels like buying money for old rope.
