Schalke 04 vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Veltins Arena.
The Company’s Eleven are one of the only two teams in the whole competition to still stay unbeaten; with Wolfsburg being the other one. The former are currently placed third in the table, trailing three points behind toppers and defending champions Bayern Munich.
However, the Bavarians are pitted against the second-placed Leipzig, and this gives Peter Bosz’s men a massive opportunity to climb to the top of the table – especially with them taking on the Royal Blues – the absolute worst team in the tournament in 2020-21.
Not only are Manuel Baum’s men the only remaining squad yet to post a win, but they have scored the least number of goals so far, and have conceded the most as well.
In addition, the Company’s Eleven also have a great h2h record against this opponent in recent years.
For the reasons, expect Bayer Leverkusen to record a huge win this Sunday, and give tough competition to the top two teams in the table.
Schalke vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Bosz’s men had recorded six of the preceding eight overall wins, and seven of the former 22 victories as well.
- Only once have they failed to score against this rival in the last 13 encounters.
- It’s been seven years since the hosts have won at this stadium.
- Since 2002, the visitors have failed to score at this venue just twice.
Schalke vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
The Royal Blues lost 4-1 on the road the last match-day, against Monchengladbach. In the meantime, the Company’s Eleven were held to a goalless draw the past game week, by Hertha.
Going on, Baum’s men were winless in 29 of their last 34 overall matches, and they remained so in 15 of their preceding 18 appearances at home.
They also have conceded the most number of goals in the German top flight this season, and have scored a total of just six goals in return (least in the league).
On the other hand, their counterparts are gunning to become the toppers of the table, and had won nine of their previous eleven overall fixtures. They are also on a four-game winning run on the road, and have scored a total of 13 goals in the process.
Taking these observations into account, expect Bayer Leverkusen to make light work of Schalke and post a compelling win this weekend.
