Bayer Leverkusen Prediction – Can Leverkusen return to winning ways?

The hosts have suffered back-to-back defeats in recent times with a 2-0 loss at home to Juventus in the Champions League and then a surprise 2-0 loss away from home at Cologne in the Bundesliga immediately afterwards, so Bayer Leverkusen will no doubt be keen to return to winning ways this Wednesday evening.

As a result of the defeat to Juventus, Bayer Leverkusen have dropped down to the Europa League where they’ll play Porto over two legs in the knockout round of 32, but it’s back to the business of climbing up the table in the Bundesliga and rekindling their earlier solid form.

Leverkusen sit in 7th place following their loss to Cologne but they’d previously put together a promising 4-match run without defeat which included impressive wins against Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich and Schalke, along with a point in a draw at home with Freiburg.

Bayer Leverkusen have lost just 1 of their 8 home matches to date within a stubborn looking record of 3-4-1 12/9 with their one defeat being against 2nd placed Borussia Moenchengladbach, but that’s been their only defeat in their last 11 matches at their BayArena.

Hertha Berlin Prediction – Can Hertha Berlin improve on road?

13th placed Hertha Berlin eased any immediate worries they may have had of dropping down further into the relegation battle below them in the Bundesliga following their recent 1-0 home win against Freiburg which followed a point away from home in a draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Prior to this much-needed and welcome win and draw, Hertha Berlin had suffered a worrying 5-match losing streak as they incurred losses against Hoffenheim, Union Berlin, RB Leipzig, Augsburg and Borussia Dortmund.

With 3 of their total of 4 wins so far in this season’s Bundesliga being achieved on home turf at their Olympiastadion Berlin, Hertha Berlin’s trip to face Bayer Leverkusen looks a pretty daunting one even though Leverkusen have lost their last two matches in all competitions.

An away record of 1-3-4 10/15 includes just the one win at Cologne, but having now gone 4 matches without a win on their travels as well as winning just 3 of their last 15 matches on the road, a tough night looks to be in store for the visitors here.


Key-Facts – Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin

  • Bayer Leverkusen have lost just 1 of their last 11 matches at home
  • Hertha Berlin have won just 3 of their last 15 away matches in the Bundesliga
  • Bayer Leverkusen have won the last two meetings v Hertha Berlin, 5-1 and 3-1/li>


Betting Tips Verdict

Bayer Leverkusen should have enough quality to return to winning ways here.
