The duels between these two teams rarely end up in stalemate, and we have strong reasons to ignore the full-time result market, with either sides coming to this match on red hot form.

Meantime, Leverkusen average 3.09 goals per game across all venues as against 2.9 goals on away trips.
It is a near certain that goals can be expected in this fixture, even though both managers will be tempted for conservative approach at the start of the game. The game must open up in the second half or as soon as the first goal fall.
Therefore, we take Over 2.5 goals & both teams to score combo priced at 1.70 odd as the primary option for this duel.
Kai Havertz, the man on red hot form was our pick for anytime goal scored on Monday. But the young German is yet to find the net against the Foals.
Therefore, we look at Alassane Plea, who scored within 60 seconds at Frankfurt last week. The French forward is in lethal form this season, with nine goals and seven assists to his name. He will be our pick to score anytime here.
Meantime, brave punters can back the btts in second half, since we expect more of the action to happen in the last 30 minutes of the game.
