Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Prediction

The hosts were handed their second straight defeat in the Champions League earlier this week, with their opponents Juventus slotting three unanswered goals past them on the road. However, Leverkusen have been faring a lot better in their domestic campaign and are currently boasting a two-game winning streak under their belt.

Their previous outing in the league saw them breeze past Augsburg with a 3-0 scorecard while in the comforts of their home they got the better of newly-promoted Union Berlin with two goals to their name and a clean sheet intact.

In spite of their impressive form in the Bundesliga, it needs saying that their foes for the weekend are no easy side to take down. The away side succumbed to what was only their first defeat of the season last week.

Furthermore, Leipzig have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their clashes on the road and have picked up the win in each of their last five outings in all competitions.

It is also worth mentioning that the away side have not tasted defeat in any of their previous visits to this venue and have walked away with the bragging rights in two of their last three trips here. Given the impressive away record at hand for the guests, the safest punt by far is a double chance in favor of Leipzig rather than Leverkusen.

Nevertheless, the hosts are unlikely to give in easily. The home team have scored two goals or more in two of their last three Bundesliga games here. Taking into account that all of their previous three head to head fixtures here have also seen both teams find the back of the net, count on both teams to have their scoring boots on in this one.
