Bayer Leverkusen vs Union Berlin
German DFB Pokal
Date: Wednesday, 4 March 2020
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: BayArena, Leverkusen
DFB Pokal quarter-final matches are on this week, and it will be interesting to see can Bayer Leverkusen continue with great performances against Union Berlin.
Visitors have just lost big advantage against Wolfsburg during the weekend and barely got away with a point.
Many will say Union Berlin were extremely lucky with the DFB Pokal draw so far, so the game at BayArena is going to be the first true test.
Hosts are hot favorites for the win, currently priced at 1.44 odds. These two teams have met recently in Bundesliga and we witnessed one hell of a match with five goals.
Bayer Leverkusen v Union Berlin Head-to-head
The above-mentioned match was played in the capital, two weeks ago. Leverkusen celebrated a narrow 3-2 victory thanks to the goal of Kerim Bellarabi in the 94th minute.
These two teams have met three times in history so far, and Bayer were victorious in every single encounter.
The average number of goals scored in all those matches before is 4.00 per duel.
Bayer Leverkusen v Union Berlin Prediction
We don’t think Union Berlin will be heavily invested in this match. Their primary goal for the season is to avoid relegation in Bundesliga, and that task has been going really good so far. The team is 10th with 30 points from 24 games, far away from the red line.
In the previous DFB Pokal rounds, Union Berlin eliminated lower division teams Germania Halberstadt and Verl, and Freiburg. They have suffered four defeats in the last seven away days in Bundesliga.
Bayer Leverkusen have been on fire lately. Peter Bosz’s team has just returned with a big point won on the road against RB Leipzig. Just before that they caused an upset in Europa League by easily eliminating Porto FC. We have no doubt they will win this match too and advance to the semi-finals.
As for the secondary tip, Kai Havertz has been playing out of his mind lately, scoring once against Porto and providing two assists. We see good value in backing him to score at anytime.
