Authors of a correct match but eliminated from the Champions League this week (0-0 against Atlético), the Leverkusen players saw their hopes of European epic collapse, coming to weigh a little more In a season already missed. Ten of the Bundesliga, far behind the squares for the next C1, Chicharito and company are in trouble and have only the Europa League to aim. All the reverse of Hoffenheim in short. Fourth in the championship thanks to an exemplary regularity, the men of Nagelsmann constitute the pleasant surprise of the season on the other side of the Rhine and remain on a beautiful series of three victories at home. The fourth coming Saturday?
Probability points Hoffenheim Bayer Leverkusen
On the way, Hoffenheim had made only one bite of Leverkusen on the lawn of BayArena (0-3).
The club coached by young Nagelsmann is unbeaten at home this season, remaining on success against Mainz, Darmstadt and Ingolstadt.
A series at home punctuated by a flattering record: 11 goals scored for 2 small cashed. Rhein-Neckar-Arena = fortress?
For his part Leverkusen has not won since five games, all competitions combined (2 draws and 3 defeats).
A negative series to which is added a lack of certain physical freshness: 67 hours only between the match in Spain and the trip to Hoffenheim. Against a full week for the premises.
Hoffenheim Bayer Leverkusen – Our prediction
This meeting does not come down to Leverkusen, it’s the least we can say. Hoffenheim is very performing at home, will be much cooler in the legs and heads, and will be motivated to the idea of getting closer to a next participation in the Champions League. Too many conditions not to try the magnificent side of a victory of the premises!
Prediction: Both teams to score / YES
