Bayer Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim
Date: Saturday, 3 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
Bayer are set to host Hoffenheim in one of the most interesting clashes of the round in Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon at BayArena. Die Werkself look to have finally found the wanted shape and they’ll come into this in the highest of spirits after bagging as many as 11 goals in last two matches.
Heiko Herrlich’s men demolished Werder Bremen 2-6 on the road last weekend, just three days before clinching another demolishing victory against the likes of Monchengladbach away at BORUSSIA-PARK. Herrlich showed how important DFB Pokal is to him by sending practically the strongest line-up on the pitch on Wednesday evening. Kevin Volland, Julian Brandt and Karim Bellarabi all confirmed their spell of excellent form by notching goals in both of mentioned wins within last seven days. Can they keep it going here against the attacking-minded Hoffenheim?

Bayer Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim Prediction
The visitors were enjoying a decent form all up until Wednesday when they fell 2-0 to Leipzig to suffer an early DFB Pokal elimination. Julian Nagelsmann’s men failed to produce in the final third after bagging at least three goals in three straight games against Nurnberg, Lyon and Stuttgart beforehand.
Nevertheless, Nagelsmann’s main problem lies in the lack of meticulousness in his team’s back line. Hoffenheim’s defense will be on a heavy test on Saturday when they come face to face with the red-hot attack of Bayer’s.
This is why we just have to expect goals at BayArena. Leverkusen to net two or more on the occasion is a banker bet at the odds of 1.66.
