Bayer Leverkusen is all set to host RB Leipzig this Sunday, as both the teams seek to cement their places within the top 4 in the ongoing season of the German Bundesliga.
Barring its exit from the Europa League at the hands of Atalanta, Leverkusen has played well in the last few weeks. The club has lost just 1 game in its last 6 outings, picking up 11 points from a maximum possible of 18. As a result, it now sits at the 3rd spot on the points table, just one point ahead of Sunday’s opponents. While a number 1 finish is practically impossible, Leverkusen would still like to secure 3 points from this game in order to strengthen its bid for a Champions League spot.
Leverkusen's latest outing was a frustrating one, as it was held to a goalless draw by 12th-placed Bochum. They could manage just 2 shots on target, both of which were struck down by Riemann.
Leipzig has played some great football in the last few weeks. It is unbeaten in its last 8 games within the top flight and has won 2 consecutive matches before traveling to Leverkusen. Leipzig also beat Atalanta in the second leg of the Europa League quarterfinals and advanced into the semifinals with an aggregate of 3-1.
Its last game in the Bundesliga was a home affair against Hoffenheim, where Nkunku gave them an early lead, striking the first goal in the 5th minute. Halstenberg and Szoboszlai came up with goals in 20th and 44th minute respectively, and Hoffenheim had no chance of recovering thereafter, finishing the game at 3-0. Leipzig has just made it into the top 4, leading the 5th placed Freiburg by 3 points. Domenico Tedesco will be looking to pick up maximum points in this and the upcoming games to further bolster his team’s position.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the BayArena Stadium, Leverkusen, on 17th April 2022.
Leipzig and Leverkusen are two of the most in-form teams since the second half started, and Sunday’s clash is anticipated to be one of the most exciting ones of the season. Patrick Schick and Christopher Nkunku are 2nd and 3rd respectively in this year’s top scorer list, and it will be an interesting game of one-upmanship, as both the players vie to increase their tallies.
To his advantage, Tedesco has a near full squad to choose from, with the only absentee being Amadou Haidara. On the other hand, Gerardo Seoane has quite a long list of injured players. Frimpong, Fosu-Mensah, Bellarabi, Adli, Wirtz, and Lunev are almost certain to miss out, while Tah and Azmoun are doubtful.
With both the teams pretty evenly matched in form, we expect them to be at an equal level when the final whistle blows.
Bet on a draw.
5 of the last 6 games between the two teams have seen both of them score. 4 of the last 5 away games for Leipzig and 6 of the last 8 home games for Leverkusen have seen goals being scored at both ends. We are betting on another similar match where both of the teams get on board.
4 of Leipzig’s last 5 away games have been high-scoring ones, with at least 3 aggregate goals, while 7 of Leverkusen’s last 8 home games have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored. With both the teams in prime form, it would be surprising to see less than 2.5 goals being scored.
