Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Saturday, 20 June 2020. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the Olympiastadion.
The Company’s Eleven are currently placed in the final Champions League spot. However, they have a lead of just one point, and with two games still to go for the season to come to an end, they are being furiously chased by a determined Monchengladbach.
In the meantime, the Old Lady have ruled out European spot, as well as have put themselves safe away from the relegation cut-off. They do not have the motivation, or rather need, to go after the three points this weekend.
Moreover, the Company’s Eleven have been one of the best teams in the league, and they have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years. Considering this situation, it seems as if punters should back a Bayer Leverkusen win this Saturday.
Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head (h2h)

- The combined scoreline for the past three encounters is 8-3, in favor of the Company’s Eleven.
- Since 1999, only once have the guests failed to score goals at this venue.
- The last time these two locked horns at this ground, the guests registered a 1-5 win.
Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
The Old Lady lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Freiburg. The visitors had drawn the first blood with a goal. However, it was turned down by the VAR, and it possibly led to their loss in confidence.
In the meantime, the Company’s Eleven registered a 3-1 win at home over Koln the past game week. In a must-win match, the hosts found the back of the net early in the 7th minute itself, and dominated proceedings throughout.
By the looks of things, the Company’s Eleven are the favorites. They are placed in the top-most tier, and are determined to qualify for the Champions League. They have won 15 of their past 20 overall match-ups, and are unbeaten on the road in their last nine games (seven of which were wins).
On the other hand, the Old Lady have nothing left to play for, and they are also on a three-game losing run. On top of that, they have suffered in h2h clashes over the years, and especially so at this venue. In fact, the latest such encounter had ended in a 1-5 win for the Company’s Eleven.
As such, count on a huge win by Bayer Leverkusen this Saturday.
