Our football match prediction:
Bayer Leverkusen are likely to have yet another reason to forget. The club chiefs sold several first-team regulars in the summer transfer window and it is no surprise the BayArena outfit have been struggling at the start of the 2017/2018 Bundesliga campaign. Heiko Herrlich’s troops have yet to record a win in the German top flight this term and they head into Sunday’s football match against Freiburg following a 3-1 loss at Mainz. Bayer Leverkusen are desperate to return to winning ways and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. Freiburg did well to hold star-studded Borussia Dortmund to a goalless draw at the weekend the Brazilians of Breisgau are widely expected to spoil Leverkusen’s party at BayArena. A close encounter appears on the cards and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 4.
