Union Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be full of action in ninety minutes. Union Berlin comes into the game with an unbeaten streak in the campaign. The host also enjoys the ground advantage, and it has to open up space for them at some point in ninety minutes.
It has to be noted that the home team drew three of their last five unbeaten clashes. This shows a shaky defense that is likely to concede goals. For a team like Bayer Leverkusen, an open invitation like that is more than enough for turning the game in their favor.
However, Leverkusen came across a dip in form as of late in the league. Having lost two fixtures in a row, the visitor will have trouble at the back. This ensures that there will be a couple or more goals with both teams, each likely to be at the end of those goals.
Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. Along with that, the combined tip for Bayer Leverkusen to win and over 2.5 goals in full-time will probably come in handy to yield decent returns in the encounter.
