      Bayer Leverkusen vs Schalke Predictions

      Bayer Leverkusen have been in pretty patchy form since the new season began. They haven’t managed to win more than two games in a row at any point and their points building has been interrupted by a number of poor spells of form.

      They have lost three, won one, and drawn one of their last five games in all competitions, with the most recent result being their 1-1 draw away to BATE in the Europa League, which followed a 3-1 win against Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend.

      Overall, they have won six, drawn two, and lost five of their opening 13 Bundesliga games. But Bayer Leverkusen always try to go for the win rather than settle for a draw, which results in them losing more often.

      There is admiration to be had for this method, and it seems to be paying off. They are in a decent 6th place in the Bundesliga with 20 points despite no team in the top 12 having lost more than them.

      Schalke started their season in emphatic form as they romped to victory in five of their opening seven Bundesliga matches, as well as winning their opening two Europa League matches.

      However, their form has taken a dramatic turn for the worse over the past month or so. They have only won one of their last eight games, losing four times in the process.

      This has seen them slip down to 7th in the table, a disappointing position considering they were 3rd after seven matches.

      But Schalke did manage to get a win in midweek as they beat APOEL 1-0 in the Europa League to maintain their position at the top of their group.

      Seven of Schalke’s last 11 games have seen three or more goals scored, while Bayer Leverkusen have seen the same outcome in seven of their last eight outings. Schalke have also scored in all of their last five matches, with Bayer Leverkusen seeing both teams hit the back of the net in all of their last five as well. This makes odds of 1/1 for Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score look excellent value.
