Our football match prediction:
Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich when they host Hoffenheim at their BayArena on day 2 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Heiko Herrlich’s troops failed to impress in the national championship last season and, no doubt, they are desperate to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign. However, seeing that the likes of Javier Hernandez Chicharito and Hakan Calhanoglu left the club in the summer transfer window, we do not believe that the BayArena outfit are capable of playing an important role in the German top flight this season. Hoffenheim recorded a well-deserved victory over Werder Bremen on the opening day of the season and considering that the likes of Serge Gnabry and Andrej Kramaric should be recalled to the starting line-up, we predict that the visitors will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match.
