Bayer Leverkusen vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
Quite easily the match of the day in the Bundesliga this week. Both these teams come from the top-six of the table and are actively fighting for European spots. Leverkusen is in the sixth position, and has a Europa League spot in possession, but enjoys just a single-point lead over the team below. On the other hand, they are hosting Frankfurt, from the fourth and final Champions League spot, with a lead of just three points.
If Bayer manages to win this tie, their dream to take part in the premier competition of Europe gets a mighty push. Frankfurt has a tough task at hand, as they are one-half into the two-legged Europa League semifinal tie against Chelsea, and will have the accompanying exhaustion along with it.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Leverkusen has been the dominant team in h2h ties. The side registered five of the last seven wins and six of the last seven at this venue. The last they lost at home against this team was in 2013, and in the last two decades, they have lost just thrice. Leverkusen managed to score three or more goals in the last three clashes at this stadium.
In overall clashes, five of the last six saw the teams at home taking the win. As such, Bayer should give priority to their Champions League aim, and go after the victory. Eintracht, who is likely tired due to the extra responsibility of the Chelsea two-legged tie, will find life hard this weekend.
But they will not roll over though. The team will fight to keep their top-four prospects alive. Also, they were unbeaten in 19 of their last 21 matches, and in 16 of their last 19 on the road. They managed to score in 21 of their last 24 away ties and won four of their last games away from home.
In all probability, expect them to deny a clean sheet to the hosts.
