Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Match Preview
Bayer Leverkusen made the top 6 cut with quite confident Bundesliga wins over Union Berlin (2-0) and Augsburg (0-3) as Kevin Volland led the attacking line with two goals. However, they’ve seen the winning streak ended by Juventus (3-0) in Champions League on Tuesday and now have another tough task on their hands as they host RB Leipzig.
Die Werkself have been tougher to beat at home ground but still have a lot to prove, as they struggled for consistency and earned seven points in three Bundesliga outings but saw Lokomotiv Moscow (1-2) snatch all three in Champions League along the way. Peter Bosz found it hard to get stability from his back line and this could be just as worrying.
RB Leipzig have seen just as much trouble over the past seven days, as they saw Schalke (1-3) end their lengthy unbeaten streak on Saturday and failed to bounce from it, as Julian Nagelsmann’s men struggled to create chances and two defensive errors saw Lyon (0-2) snatch the Champions League points at Red Bull Arena.
Die Bullen have been more convincing beforehand and we’ve seen six wins in seven outings across competitions, only Bayern Munich interrupting the streak with a 1-1 draw in Leipzig. They will now be desperate to rediscover such form in the final third but a lot could still depend on the back line without Ibrahima Konate at the center of it once again.
We still feel RB Leipzig will be able to outgun Bayer at this point, though, and we’ll now stick our necks out for them to bounce to the winning ways at a very important time. We’ll thus go for an Away win, which comes at 2/1 with bet365 and looks like a lively longshot.
We should be in for goals and both sides have based success on an attacking approach, which promises excitement on the day as well. With that in mind, going for Over 2.5 Goals FT feels like more of a banker bet and we’ll go for it at 8/15 with bet365.
