Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
Bayer Leverkusen will be hoping to rebound from demolishing losses to Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Die Werkself shipped as many as ten goals in these consecutive defeats to league’s heavyweights and they will be highly motivated to bounce back on Saturday when Stuttgart come to visit BayArena.
Heiko Herrlich’s men still hold the firth place in the league ladder, but they are now just two points above the red-hot Hoffenhiem side and a win here is a must if they want to avoid the drop to fifth and halt the push for the Champions League football next term.
Nonetheless, Stuttgart could be a tough nut to crack for Leverkusen, especially given that the hosts will come into the game low on confidence after the mentioned failures. Anyhow, we could be in for quite entertaining 90 minutes of football on Saturday afternoon at BayArena.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart: Prediction
Tayfun Korkut has reasons to be satisfied with the job he has done so far in the campaign with Stuttgart. The team which just joined the top flight last year sits on the brink of the top half of the standing which has to be regarded as a success. The Reds were fairly tough to break down of late having allowed only a single goal in last two league matches with Hannover 96 and Werder Bremen.
Stuttgart can be very dangerous on travels as well where they won three in a row in Bundesliga before falling 3-0 to Borussia Dortmund in the previous away fixture. As mentioned above, Leverkusen are in a huge demand for points here, but we can hardly see the value in the 1.40 odd s offered for the home win given that Stuttgart will head into this as kind of form favourites.
The main bet is Stuttgart not to lose by two or more goals at the odds of 1.75, while w3e also fancy Leverkusen not to score three or more goals at 1.57.
