Our match prediction:
Bayer Leverkusen welcome Hamburg at their BayArena on Saturday afternoon. Bayer aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Borussia M’gladbach and it remains to be seen if they are capable of giving fans some cheer following the defeat to die Fohlen. Hamburg, on the other hand, head into the game following a 3-1 win over Augsburg and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face Bayer Leverkusen at BayArena. The hosts, though, want this win more than their rivals and we predict that there likes of Calhanoglu and Bellarabi are going to make life difficult for the opposition defenders. Roger Schmidt’s troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they are likely to emerge triumphant in their first home game of the season. Taking everything into account, the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed from Saturday’s football game.
