      Bayer Leverkusen vs Barcelona Predictions

      Bayer Leverkusen have struggled this season, with regular losses and draws preventing them from building up any momentum.

      They haven’t won more than two games in a row all season, and are coming into this difficult match in a patch of poor form.

      They have only won one of their last seven outings in all competitions, with four losses and two draws making up the remainder of the results.

      They sit in 8th in the Bundesliga, but the more pressing concern will be this Champions League encounter. They are in 3rd position, with their five points equalling 2nd place AS Roma’s tally. They lag behind on head to head results, and 4th place BATE are only a point behind them.

      This means that Bayer Leverkusen need to beat Barcelona to stand a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages, because a win for BATE in their game against Roma would see them leapfrog both sides whereas a draw would see Roma stay above them if Leverkusen don’t triumph.

      Barcelona are having no such worries with regards to the Champions League group. Their 13 point haul has seen them secure the top spot with games left to spare, so it’s entirely possible that they could rest a few of the top players on Wednesday.

      But they come into this match on the back of a 12 match unbeaten streak in all competitions, with ten of those games ending in victory for the Champions League holders.

      But they do sometimes struggle away from home. They have only won three of their last eight away days in all competitions, with shock losses against Sevilla and Celta Vigo coming on the road during this period.

      With Barcelona not at their best away from home and the distinct possibility of them playing a weakened team I think Bayer Leverkusen have a great chance on Wednesday. Odds of 17/20 for a Bayer Leverkusen Win or Draw Double Chance look good enough value to me.
