Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin Prediction & Match Preview

Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin
German Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).

Bayer Leverkusen are without a doubt the most inform team in Bundesliga and they eye another win on Sunday against Hertha at the BayArena on Sunday.

Since starting the Bundesliga campaign on three consecutive draws, Leverkusen bagged 5 wins on the trot and remain as the only unbeaten team in the league.

They are looking solid in the attacking front as well with 13 goals scored from the last 4, having netted just 3 times in the first four.

Last week, we saw them sweat hard to defeat Bielefeld 2-1, but their flair was once again at display in the 4-1 Europa League win against Hapoel Beer Sheva.

Lucas Alario is one of the standout performers for Werkself this term, having scored 7 goals in the last 5 Bundesliga games. Leon Bailey is also having an excellent season after bagging 2 goals and 2 assists in his last 4.

Hertha is caught at the wrong end of the form table and managed just 2 wins all season. Poor defending is the main reason for this and already conceded 18 goals from the 8 matches played so far this season.

This is more or less the same we saw from the Old Lady last season before they distanced themselves from the relegation zone with some excellent results after covid-19 lockdown.

The Berliners remain at 13th in the table with 7 points, while Leverkusen are 3rd, a point behind Dortmund and Bayern.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin Head-to-head

  • The teams share 5 wins each from their recent 10 meetings in Bundesliga.
  • And there are no draws in their last 14 matchups in the league.
  • Hertha won 2-0 when they met at the BayArena last season.
  • Both teams scored in 7 of the last 10 and the same games ended with over 2.5 goals.
  • At home, Leverkusen lost 2 of the last 3 to Hertha, having won in 4 consecutive games prior to that.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin Prediction

This could go down as bet of the week with Bayer Leverkusen firing from all cylinders lately braced by the scoring touch of Lucas Alario helped on by Leon Bailey and Moussa Diaby on the flanks. We thus back the hosts to bag a win on Sunday and I believe the 1.70 odd is a generous offer from the bookies.

Despite the poor full-time results, Hertha have a knack of scoring goals and so far they netted in 7 of the 8 league games, especially on the road, they scored a massive 8 from 4 games. Leverkusen on the other hand scored 17 goals from their last 4 home games across all competitions and therefore the over 2.5 goals in the match offer us some great value.

The same applies for btts, with the hosts yet to keep a clean sheet across all competitions in the 2020/21 season.
