Our match prediction:
Leverkusen will be looking for revenge after the defeat against Koln in the reverse fixture. Roger Schmidt’s men are on a three-game winning streak, with a magnificent 6/0 goal difference. Javier Hernandez (15) ended his barren run against Wolfsburg with an effective goal from just outside the penalty area, and then assisted Yurchenko in the final moment of the match for the first Bundesliga goal of the Ukraine international. Bayer are now level on points with the Foals, and will fight till the end for a position in the Champions League next season. Koln have been producing below-par displays of recent, with a single league triumph in their previous seven matches (D2 L4), but still have a seven-point cushion between them and the dotted line. The Billy Goats have been struggling in front the opposition goals of late, and, bearing in mind Leverkusen’s rock-solid defense, we do not expect them to pose a significant threat to Leno this weekend. An away victory is predicted in this football match, which will enable Bayer to go one step closer to their goal.
