Competition: Bundesliga

Market: Bayer Leverkusen win

Odds: 1/2 @ BetUS

Looking to extend on their remarkable Bundesliga purple patch, Bayer Leverkusen will make the trip to Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Werder Bremen might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign with their sights set on trying to mount a genuine top-half charge, the River Islanders have continued to struggle with their consistency. Last seen suffering a major collapse on home soil as they eventually entered November’s international break with a 2-2 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt, Ole Werner’s side have recorded just a single win from their previous six Bundesliga appearances. With that extended rut stemming all the way back to a 2-1 victory against Koln on September 23rd, Bremen should be bracing themselves for another stern examination here. With their recent issues highlighted by a dreadful 4-2 defeat at the hands of Darmstadt on October 1st, Werner’s men should also be worried by their most recent showdown against Saturday’s guests. Hit with a 3-2 defeat when they welcomed Leverkusen to town on March 12th, Bremen have also failed to win any of their last six meetings against the Bundesliga leaders.

As for the visitors, in the midst of what has been a record-breaking Bundesliga romp, Bayer Leverkusen suddenly have their sights set on claiming a first domestic crown since 2011, Xabi Alonso’s men are riding a remarkable wave of momentum. Last seen heading into November’s international break with another stellar performance as they cruised their way to a 4-0 romp at home against Champions League outfit Union Berlin, the one-time Liverpool midfielder has seen his squad win all of their previous 12 straight showdowns across all formats – a run that stems all the way back to September 15th. Gaining a fearsome reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third and yet to suffer a single defeat across any front this season, Leverkusen should be smelling the chance to make another Bundesliga statement this weekend. Picking up that action-packed 3-2 victory when they travelled to the Weserstadion back on March 12th, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
