Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Match Preview
Bayer Leverkusen dropped out of the Bundesliga top 6 with thrilling yet very disappointing losses to Werder Bremen (1-3) and Hoffenheim (4-1) in their last two outings, as beauties scored by Leon Bailey and Kevin Volland proved nothing but a consolation.
Die Werkself now sit behind Bremen for their goal difference only and Peter Bosz should have no troubles to lift their spirits despite struggles with a tough schedule lately. They’ve been scoring on the regular and will now hope to capitalize on them as well, promising a strong challenge on Saturday.
RB Leipzig seem to be in a better place at this point, though, and come on the back of a DFB Pokal success against Augsburg (1-2), where they conceded a last-minute equalizer but 121’ penalty-kick converted by Marcel Halstenberg sent them through to the Semi-finals.
Die Bullen have thus connected their second win in a row after also beating Hertha (5-0) in front of the home fans, as Yussuf Poulsen lead the line with a hat-trick. They will now want to keep it up and we feel they have what it takes to secure all three points at BayArena.
We’ll thus back them to snatch an important win for their top 4 ambitions here and go for an Away win at 19/10 with William Hill, which feels overpriced at this point as Leverkusen struggle for pick-me-ups recently.
We do feel we’re in for goals and Die Bullen will have to impress up front to outgun the rivals, as we now also stick with a high-scoring contest in Leverkusen with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/13 with bet365.
