Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Audi Sportpark, Ingolstadt.
FC Ingolstadt welcome Bayer Leverkusen at Audi Sportpark in a match without a competitive significance for the guests, but unlike Leverkusen, Ingolstadt have a lot to lose and three points from this match would vastly boost their chances for Bundesliga Survival.
Die Schanzer snatched a huge point at Red Bull Arena last weekend. Both Ingolstadt and RB Leipzig were unable to find the net and the match ended without goals. The hosts are in the 16th position with 29 points collected – 4 points away from the relegation play-off spot. After a series of solid performances, their form is in a downward trend as they are without a win for three games.
In 16 games at Audi Sportpark, FC Ingolstadt won only four and drew two outings, while they were beaten in the remaining 10.
The team from Bay Arena is having a forgettable season. After 31 matches, Leverkusen collected only 36 points – a very disappointing sum for UEFA Champions League 1/8-finalists.
Leverkusen were beaten in 4 out of last 5 games on the road. Their overall away record this season reads W5 D1 L9. Also, they won the least points in the second part of the season out of all top-flight teams.
