Competition: Bundesliga

Market: Bayer Leverkusen to score in both halves

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Looking to widen their buffer in the top-four this weekend, a high-flying Bayer Leverkusen will welcome Stuttgart to the BayArena on Saturday evening.

Starting with the hosts, putting in what was nothing short of stellar performance on the road last weekend, Bayer Leverkusen find themselves enjoying what has been a remarkable recent flurry. Storming their way to a 5-2 romp away at Borussia Dortmund, Gerardo Seoane’s men sit in pole position to book a Champions League return this season. Winning each of their last three Bundesliga contests on the spin, Die Werkself have also gained a real reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third. Landing a 5-1 victory at home against Augsburg when heading into January’s brief winter break, Leverkusen should also be boosted by their success on home soil. Including a stunning 7-1 win against Furth back on December 4th, Saturday’s hosts are unbeaten in their last seven matchups at the BayArena, bagging 24 goals.

As for the visitors, marking their return from the winter break with an action-packed 3-2 defeat at home against Eintracht Frankfurt, Stuttgart find themselves firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap. Really failing to build off of their top-half finish last season, Head Coach Pellegrino Matarazzo now sees his side sat four points adrift of safety and facing a real task. In the midst of a nightmare campaign at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, it should also be noted that the Whites have collected just a single point from their last six Bundesliga matchups. Showing a host of problems at the back, it’s also worth highlighting that they hold a woeful record against the Champions League hopefuls. Including a 3-1 defeat when they faced off against Leverkusen back in September, they have lost five of their previous six meetings against Saturday’s hosts.
