Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Borussia M’gladbach and Koln, Bayer Leverkusen played out a 1-1 draw with Augsburg in their last league fixture. The BayArena outfit have been making progress week by week and they are only four points behind the Champions League berth in the Bundesliga standings. Kevin Volland found the net in the draw with Augsburg and the team’s top scorer is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Leipzig, on the other hand, play on three fronts in the 2017/2018 season, but that does not seem to be a big problem for the Red Bulls. The last season’s runners-up recorded five wins in last six league fixtures and, as a result, they sit in the second place in the standings ahead of Saturday’s football match against Bayer Leverkusen. Seeing that the hosts have been in a fine form of late, a close encounter appears on the cards and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at BayArena.
