Bayer Leverkusen vs FC Koln
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 17 June 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
The Company’s Eleven are currently placed fourth in the table, and as such are in possession of the final ticket to the Champions League. However, they are being furiously chased by Gladbach, who trail by a single point.
Likely, the Company’s Eleven are desperate for a win. On the other hand though, the Billy Goats are a team that got promoted to the top flight just this last summer, and are struggling really hard at this point.
As a positive note, they do have a surplus of seven points over the relegation cut-off, and with just three games remaining in the season, they are relatively safe. Consequentially, expect the determined Bayer Leverkusen to post the win this Wednesday.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Koln: Prediction
The Company’s Eleven recorded a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, against Schalke. It was more of a lucky result for the guests.
After the first half had ended goalless, the hosts led all through the second half after they converted a penalty early after the break. However, an own goal from the side of the hosts equalized the scoreline, which then remained unchanged till final whistle.
Meanwhile, the Billy Goats lost 1-2 at home the past game week, against Union Berlin. The visitors dominated proceedings all through the fixture, and should have ended with a clean sheet.
However, in the injury time, the home team slotted in a consolation goal, in return for the two already scored by Union Berlin.
As of now, the Company’s Eleven are overwhelming favorites to post a win. They have been one of the best teams in the competition for a long time, and especially so this season. They are also determined to qualify for the 2020-21 Champions League.
On the other hand, the Goats were promoted to this top flight just last season, and are struggling to put forth worthwhile performances. On top of that, due to their apparent safety, they are not motivated to give their best on the pitch as well.
On top of that, the Company’s Eleven have been the dominant squad in h2h clashes over the years too.
Considering all these observations, it’s deduced that Bayer Leverkusen are about to deliver a win this Wednesday.
