Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: BayArena, Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen, a usual presence in the top tier of the Bundesliga, but currently trapped in mid-table, hosts Stuttgart, possibly the worst team this season. The match takes place at BayArena, this Friday, to start the twelfth round of the German top division.
Leverkusen suffered defeat at the hands of Leipzig last weekend on the road. Three unanswered goals were put past the helpless Bayer Leverkusen defense, one in the first half, and two in the second half. Poulsen scored two of them for Leipzig, currently impressing in the Europa League. Leverkusen, a usual suspect for Champions League qualification in last seasons, had nothing to reply with.
Stuttgart had a rare win for a change last weekend, and that too away from home. The score remained 0-0 till the 68th minute before Baumgartl broke the deadlock. Thommy added one more in the 82nd minute to complete the away win. The 50,000-strong crowd was really stunned by the performance of the guests.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart Prediction
The home team has dominated Stuttgart in recent head-to-head ties. Leverkusen recorded ten of the last eleven wins. Despite their lower standing in the league right now, Bayer is a top-quality side with plenty of experience. It is highly unlikely that they would mess up this match against the worst side in the table.
Moreover, Leverkusen has been strong at home this season, losing just eight of their last 25 matchups at home.
At home, as well as on the road, Stuttgart has been below average and unsatisfactory. They are winless at home in four of their last five matches, and the stat for away games too show the same numbers.
Leverkusen will take three easy points from this fixture, and they will dominate both halves.
They will have to work hard for it, but the win seems, would be going for the home side.
