Leverkusen can secure home success

Leverkusen can’t be unhappy at this draw. They are a top-five side in the Bundesliga and can throw a bit of weight at the cup campaign as well. The Werkself have taken a W2 L1 record in their three games back following the winter break. The loss in that sequence happened in a league game at Hoffenheim on the weekend.

Their home form has not been superb. It is a W3 D1 L3 return that they have posted in their last seven fixtures at the BayArena in all competitions. But then, they have only played one home fixture since the middle of December and that did see them take a 3-0 win over Dusseldorf. So it’s a little tricky to be all down on that.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score
12/1

Bayer Leverkusen took a 1-0 home win over SC Paderborn in the previous round of this season’s German Cup. They had opened with an easy way win over Alemannia Aachen. In last season’s Bundesliga meetings with Stuttgart, Leverkusen won both of those fixtures to nil. There has only been one proves German Cup meeting between them, which ended in a 3-0 home success for the Werkself in 2002.

 

Stuttgart with bigger fish to fry

Sometimes a good cup run can be a distraction. After losing the relegation/promotion play off at the end of last season, Stuttgart dropped back down to the second tier. They are currently sitting in third place in Bundesliga 2, going unbeaten in their last five in the divisions. So they are shaping up well to shoot for a return to the top flight. That is going to be their big aim for this season, not fighting through to try and win a cup that is notoriously difficult to do so.

Stuttgart have won only two of their last five games (D3) and are W1 D1 since returning from the winter break. They opened their German Cup campaign with a 1-0 success at Hansa Rostock and then beat fellow second-tier side Hamburg out on the road after extra time. However, they have not managed to win any of their last seven games away from home (90 minutes), drawing each of their last three. Stuttgart have no clean sheet in their last seven away games.
