Bayer Leverkusen vs Ingolstadt
Date: Sunday, 18th December, 2016
Kick-off: 16:30 UK
Venue: BayArena, Leverkusen.
Ingolstadt are probably responsible for the greatest upset so far in the competition having beaten the shocking leaders to end their amazing run of eight consecutive wins in the top flight of German football. Die Schanzher have thus managed to escape the rock bottom of the standings, but they have a mountain to climb to reach the main goal which is avoiding the relegation at the end of the season.
The new manager Maik Walpurgis is surely the main responsible for the rise in Ingolstadt’s form as he managed to take seven points in the last four rounds, since he took charge of the team. And Ingolstadt will have a serious challenge as they will visit BayArena in the 15th round of the competition.
Bayer Leverkusen have finally managed to snatch the victory after three consecutive unsuccessful attempts. Roger Schmidt’s men have struggled a lot to break the deadlock at VELTINS-Arena even though Naldo has been sent off in the 4th minute of the game. Stefan Kiessling finally started a match for Leverkusen and scored the only goal of the game against Schalke to secure three points for Bayer.
