Stuttgart vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Saturday, 3 October 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena.
The Company’s Eleven have been one of the best teams in the competition for the past several years, and they have been usual contenders for a top-four finish. They did miss out on a Champions League spot the last season, and that too by a whisker.
They had to settle for a fifth-place finish, just two points below the final cut-off for a UCL entry. This should motivate them to amass as many points as they can at any cost, and not once more miss out on Europe’s most prestigious tournament.
However, so far they have had some troubles in posting three points on the board, and this weekend seems like the perfect opportunity to begin their winning run.
The reason being, they are pitted against a newly-promoted and inexperienced team in the Reds. Not only are Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men new to the top flight, but they also do have an inferior h2h record against this opponent over the years.
As such, expect a dominating performance from Bayer Leverkusen this Saturday.
Stuttgart vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Peter Bosz’s men had won seven of the past eight overall encounters.
- They also had registered 13 of the former 14 overall wins.
- The last three games at this stadium were wins to nil for the guests.
- It’s been ten years since the home team has won at this stadium.
Stuttgart vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
Matarazzo’s men had recorded a 1-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Stuttgart. In the meanwhile, the Company’s Eleven registered a 1-1 draw at home against Leipzig.
As things stand, Bosz’s men have the upper hand. They have been one of the best teams in the Bundesliga for the past several years, and they had even finished just two points below the UCL cut-off in 2019-20.
This fact would just fuel them even more to go after a podium finish this time around, and that would make them extremely dangerous – especially against the recently-promoted teams like the Reds.
On top of that, Bosz’s men also do have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years. In fact, they had won seven of the preceding eight h2h encounters, and they also had registered 13 of the former 14 overall wins.
And at this venue, they are on streak of posting wins to nil since 2016, and the last they lost here was back in 2010.
As such, expect Bayer Leverkusen to deliver a great performance this Saturday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
