Bayer Leverkusen – Leipzig
Bayer Leverkusen hosts RB in a match from the 12th round of the German Bundesliga. The game is going to be played at the BayArena in the city of Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen are performing like a typical midtable team since the start of the new season. They are currenty 9th in the league standings with 16 points won and a record of four wins, four draws and three losses.
But it’s important to note that Leverkusen are being unbeaten in their last five matches. In the last round they made a 1-1 draw against Augsburg. Before that they won two consecutive times against Borussia M’gladbach and Koln.
RB Leipzig are performing in a much more better way. The Champions League participants are currently 2nd in the league, being just behind the leader and reigning champion Bayern Munich. RB Leipzig’s record so far is 22 points, won from seven wins, one draw and three losses. They are almost flawless in their last five matches, winning four of them and losing only against Bayern at the Allianz Arena.
Leverkusen have some problems before the game. Leon Bailey, Jonathan Tah, Sven Bender and Benjamin Henrichs are all doubtful for the clash because of injury problems.
Meanwhile RB Leipzig could be without Ibrahima Konate, Dayot Upamecano, Jean Kevin Augustin, Stefan Ilsanker and Fabio Coltorti. They are all still recovering from injuries, so their participation in the match is not clear yet.
Based on current form and overall quality, RB Leipzig are slight favourites here. But in same time you shall have in mind that Bayer Leverkusen have the home advantage here. You shall also not forget the fact that Leverkusen are unbeaten in their last five games, which tells us that right now they are in a good place to be. Good luck!
