Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayer Leverkusen will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they take on Hoffenheim on Saturday afternoon. Bayer kicked off the new Bundesliga campaign with back-to-back losses to Borussia Dortmund and Augsburg, but they were more than unfortunate not to grab something from these matches. Patrick Schick has yet to open his goal-scoring account, but the opposition defenders should have the Czech Republic international at bay.
All Karim Bellarabi, Andrey Lunev, Amine Adil, Robert Andrich, and Florian Wirtz should miss out with injuries for the home side. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. The likes of Kevin Vogt, Angelo Stiller, Benjamin Hubner and Ihlas Bebou are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
