Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Saturday, 18th March 2017
Kick off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
Bayer Leverkusen have had a turbulent season and they will need a true little miracle to catch the Champions League spots in the final ten rounds.
Plenty of questions are to be answered this Saturday when Die Werkself travel to WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena to take on the fourth-placed Hoffenheim.
The youngest manager in the competition, Julian Nagelsmann, has the full right to keep dreaming about the most elite football competition in the next season.
Hoffenheim have again found a decent shape as they have two wins and draws in the last four league ties.
The team has been especially impressive on the home court where they are 3/3 in 2017 winning each of the clashes with Mainz, Darmstadt and Ingolstadt by at least two goals difference.
Bayer had a pretty tough schedule over the last couple of weeks which is the main reason for the fact the team suffered three losses and drew two of their last five games.
The devastating 6-2 loss to Borussia Dortmund two weeks ago was the last match for Roger Schmidt on Bayer’s bench.
Tayfun Korkut took charge of the team, but he is yet to celebrate the first victory after back-to-back draws with Werder Bremen and Atletico Madrid.
Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head to head
Leverkusen have been much more successful in head to head encounters winning as many as 13 out of 17 clashes.
Hoffenheim claimed their second win over Die Werkself in the first part of the season when they demolished Leverkusen 0-3 at Bay Arena.
Kerem Demirbay, Sandro Wanger and Steven Zuber scored goals for Nagelsmann’s squad.
Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
The hosts have been superb at Rhein-Neckar-Arena lately, but we can never underestimate the strong Bayer Leverkusen squad.
Both sides have a strong attacking potential in the likes of Sandro Wanger and Andrej Kramaric on one side and Javier Hernandez on the other. We thus have to suggest you to back goals as the top betting option.
Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen: Bet Tips
The first bet will be Over 2.5 goals & BTTS at the odds of 10/11.
We must take Andrej Kramaric to score anytime at 6/4 since the Croat international bagged a goal in each of last two matches.
