Bayer Leverkusen – Werkself to make light work on Matchday 14?

The top two in Germany, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, are on a collision course for Signal Iduna Park this weekend. This therefore presents an opportunity for Bayer Leverkusen to cut into a six-point deficit on the Bundesliga summit, when they welcome the league’s bottom side to BayArena for what should be a routine victory for a side which has won four of its last five competitive fixtures.

Meanwhile, Die Werkself have won eight of their last nine match-ups against newly promoted sides on home soil. They are also in confident mood following last week’s superb performance away to RB Leipzig, in which they blew last season’s runners-up away in a dominant display. That a second successive league win having dispatched with Bochum, 2020-21’s second tier champions, in their latest home outing.

Leverkusen’s form here hasn’t been the most reliable, however. Gerardo Seoane’s men boast a mere 50% win rate at BayArena so far (W3 L3), winning whenever they’ve managed to keep a clean sheet (vs Bochum, Gladbach, Mainz) and losing each time that they couldn’t (Bayern, Dortmund, Wolfsburg). Scoring no more than once – and just three altogether – across four prior outings in North Rhine-Westphalia.


Bayer Leverkusen WIN FROM BEHIND



Greuther Furth – Bundesliga’s bottom side clearly out of their depth?

Even at this relatively early juncture, the writing appears to be on the wall as far as avoiding an immediate return to Bundesliga 2 is concerned. History tells us – or should I say the kind folks at Opta – that no Bundesliga team has ever avoided relegation after collecting fewer than six points at this stage. It would be some achievement then were Greuther Furth, twelve points from safety with one on the board, to be the first.

Aside from a 1-1 draw at home to Arminia Bielefeld, who were themselves promoted only last season, there has been next to nothing to saviour from the club’s second ever stint in Germany’s top tier. The Kleeblatter (Cloverleaves) have lost eleven consecutive league games since holding out for a precious point against the side that finished last season in 15th, conceding 2+ in ten, 3+ in seven and 4+ in three.

In fact, no team has ever shipped more at this stage of a campaign than their 39, which works out at a rather neat 3.0 per game. They are yet to earn a point on the road, meanwhile, beaten by at least two goals in all but the 2-1 reverse at Hertha Berlin. A game they took the lead on the hour but still contrived to lose. That one of four occasions scoring first but still losing, as was the case in last week’s 6-3 defeat to Hoffenheim.

Bayer Leverkusen Vs Greuther Furth Betting Advice

Third place hosts eighteenth, and this gulf should be plain to see come the end of Matchday 14’s contest inside the BayArena. After a brief wobble, in which they failed to win any of four league games (D2 L2), Leverkusen are back to something resembling their normal selves. They were magnificent last time out, outclassing RB Leipzig away from home, and ought to have far too much for the division’s worst performers.


Leverkusen Vs Greuther Furth – Key Facts:

  • 23 points is the different at the start of play from Bayer Leverkusen (W7 D3 L3) in third to Greuther Furth (D1 L13) down in 18th, the latter twelve points from safety.
  • After scoring a combined seven times in their opening two home league games this season, Leverkusen have managed just three in four subsequent home fixtures.
  • However, visitors Greuther Furth are yet to earn a point on their travels (L7), conceding at least twice in each of these games (24 in total; 3.43 per away game).


Greuther Furth have found just about everyone too good since stepping up from the second division in the summer. Last week’s 6-3 loss at home to Hoffenheim made it eleven straight defeats and 13 (out of 14) for the season. Stefan Leitl’s side have allowed at least 12 more goals than any other team and were breached on at least three occasions in six of their seven Bundesliga away games. Expect more of the same.
