Our football match prediction:
Hamburger suffered yet another dip in form. Following 2-1 win over Schalke 04, die Rothosen suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Wolfsburg and Ingolstadt and, as a result, the team dropped to the relegation zone. Hamburger are determined to move away from bottom two, but they face an uphill task in Friday’s football match against Bayer Leverkusen. The relegation strugglers, though, are on a three-game unbeaten run at home and we predict that they will find the net on Matchday 19. Bayer Leverkusen dropped a two-goal advantage in a 3-2 loss to Borussia M’gladbach at the weekend and they sit in ninth place in the standings ahead of the trip to Hamburg. Roger Schmidt’s men aim to start a new winning run in the German top flight and, taking everything into account, both teams to score bet should be considered.
