Bayer Leverkusen vs Darmstadt
German Bundesliga 2016/17
Date: Saturday, 5th November 2016,
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Bay Arena, Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen’s Roger Schmidt was known as a great strategist before, but the formation and tactics against Tottenham Hotspur during the mid-week UCL action were simply amazing. The Apothecaries have snatched three points from Wembley, being only one step away from clinching a spot in the play-offs.
However, Leverkusen’s recent results in Bundesliga were not so great. Or to be exact, they are having the worst record in the last five years. The squad from Bay Arena is currently in the 10th position. So anything besides a clean and safe home victory against Darmstadt this weekend would be regarded as huge failure.
The visitors will be entering this clash as big underdogs at 12/1 rated by the bookies. To be clear, they are having the worst record on the road in Bundesliga. Norbert Meier and his team have lost four consecutive games away from home with a shockingly awful 1-11 goal difference.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Darmstadt: Head-to-Head Stats
These two sides haven’t met in the last a lot, mainly because of the fact that Darmstadt have been members of lower divisions. Four duels were played so far and three of them have been won by the standard Bundesliga stalwarts – Bayer Leverkusen. They are aiming for the top and to qualify for the Champions League group stages next year as well.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Darmstadt: Prediction
Bayer Leverkusen have demonstrated amazing team work in the already mentioned match against Tottenham. Chicharito is currently in an amazing form, being a true leader on the pitch and scoring the majority of goals for The Apothecaries. We have no doubt he will help Leverkusen to win this match both HT and FT.
