Bayer Leverkusen News and Form – Can Leverkusen win?

On paper, this looks to be a very winnable fixture for Leverkusen. They also won their last match before the winter break, a 1-0 success at Mainz. That was a relief as well because they had lost their previous two. But with four wins in their last seven games (D1 L2) the form wasn’t bad before the break.

On their travels this season in the Bundesliga, Leverkusen are W5 D0 L3. They have claimed a win in three of their last four-way games (L1), one of those being a 2-1 success at Bayern Munich. It may be worth leaning towards a low scoring game in this fixture as five of Leverkusen’s last seven league games have ended under 2.5 goals.

In total, Leverkusen have taken a clean sheet in 38% of away games, which isn’t a bad return at all. Interestingly, each of the three away defeats that they have suffered have happened by at least a two-goal margin. RB Leipzig are the only side to have earned more away points than Leverkusen.

Paderborn vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

The away form of Leverkusen should stand up to this test. It’s a trip to the bottom side in the table after all. There could easily be a bit of ring rust going on here, so under 2.5 goals is a good, solid option, especially with Leverkusen’s most recent games trending that way. Building on from that, the game should produce an away win, likely only by a one-goal margin.
