Both Leverkusen and Hamburg seek their first win of the season when they lock horns at the BayArena on Saturday afternoon.
Bayer Leverkusen fell to a 2-1 defeat at Gladbach in the opening fixture of the 2016/17 Bundesliga season. It was an evenly matches contest and the scores were tied at 1-1 before Lars Stindl scored the decisive goal in the 85th minute of the match to deny Bayer the share of the points.
Hamburger were held to a 1-1 draw by the visiting Ingolstadt in their opening fixture of the new season. U.S international Bobby Wood put them ahead in the 30th minute, but Ingolstadt pegged back level with 10 minutes left on the clock. However, the scores would have been different if they had taken their chances well.
