Bayer Leverkusen vs VfB Stuttgart Prediction

Leverkusen had defeated Paderborn at home in the previous round. The scoreline was 1-0, and the sole goal had come early for the hosts as well. The defense did a good job in maintaining the slender lead till the very end.

Meanwhile, Stuttgart had won against Hamburger SV on the road in the last round. Then, the scorecard was 1-2 in favor of the guests, and the winner had come in the extra time. Despite being on the road, Stuttgart showed justice to their objective of making a deep run into the DFB Pokal.

As things stand this Wednesday, Bayer are easily the favorites. They are a top-tier team from the German top division, and have the home advantage as well on top of that. 

On the other hand, Stuttgart are stuck in the 2.Bundesliga, and need to be cautious this Wednesday due to their away handicap.

Moreover, Leverkusen had absolutely dominated this team over the years. They had won six of the previous seven clashes, and recorded wins to nil in four of the prior five. Going on, the team also had registered 15 of the past 18 wins, and only once have they lost at this venue since 2009.

Taking into account these observations, it’s adjudged that Bayer Leverkusen are on course to deliver a dominating win this game week.
