Bayer Leverkusen vs Schalke Match Preview

Bayer Leverkusen host Schalke for their Saturday’s clash in great shape after bagging four wins and draw in their last five outings across competitions, now sitting just a point behind 2nd placed Atletico Madrid in Champions League Group D and two behind Bundesliga top 4 after 13 league outings.

Die Werkself beat Lokomotiv Moscow (0-2) and Bayern Munich (1-2) in their last two outings, proving their great form of recent and now surely wanting to keep hold of such team spirits ahead of the UCL decider against Juventus. They’ve seen goals coming from all directions lately and this promises them in good shape as well.

Schalke boast similar records of recent and we’ve seen them earn six points in two Bundesliga outings since the International break, beating Werder Bremen (1-2) and Union Berlin (2-1). They sit 3rd placed and just three points behind pace-setters Borussia Monchengladbach, which will have them just as motivated for an upset here.

Die Konigsblauen have scored a high total of eight goals in their last three away games and they’ve been no strangers to upsets on the road this term. They have been conceding on the regular too, though, and this will be more worrying – with at least a goal conceded in all of the last six trips.

We thus expect a thrilling occasion at BayArena and we’re sticking our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in a Draw priced at 14/5 with BetVictor. We’ve seen both in great shape lately and we now hope for a great contest for the important points again.

We should be in for goals and both sides’ recent records suggest the same. We’re thus also backing a Yes on Both teams to score, which looks like a solid approach at 8/13 with William Hill and it has seen many big hitters lumping already.
