Our football match prediction:
Ingolstadt did remarkably well to hold Leipzig to a goalless draw at Red Bull Arena in their last league game. Maik Walpurgis’ men, though, remained in the relegation zone in the Bundesliga standings and they face a must-win situation in Saturday’s football match against Bayer Leverkusen. Ingolstadt are four points behind Wolfsburg, who are safe for now, and we predict that the hosts will leave their hearts on the field against the BayArena outfit. Leverkusen are having a season to forget, they sit in 12th place in the standings and they are only three points clear of bottom three in Bundesliga table. Coach Tayfun Korkut feels pressure ahead of the trip to Ingolstadt and, no doubt, the visitors would be happy with one point from the game. Ingolstadt recorded a shocking 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the reverse fixture at Bay Arena, but the two teams are likely to share the spoils this time out.
