Tip Reasoning

  • Leverkusen are unbeaten in five home games, scoring 17 times in the process.
  • Union Berlin lost their first game in the second-half of the season in both Bundesliga campaigns.
  • Leverkusen picked up over half of their home points haul across their last three games here.
  • Union manager Urs Fischer failed to win five of his six prior meetings with Leverkusen.

New year, new Leverkusen

The hosts headed into the winter break on the back of four winless games, something they desperately need to put right here if they are to maintain their push for a top-four finish.

Given their recent woes, Leverkusen will be glad to begin the year at home given that their frontline has proven too much for most visitors lately, evidenced by their average return of 3.4 scored goals across their last five here.

Inspiring further confidence amongst punters and Leverkusen fans alike for this game is the fact that they are unbeaten in ten of their 12 Bundesliga games entered as pre-match favourites this season (W7, D3, L2), suggesting we could see another strong showing from the Werkself.

Iron ones could prove malleable

While just one point separates these sides ahead of kick off, Union won just one of their last five away league games and also failed to win in 75% of their league games this season as pre-match outsiders. As such, the European hopefuls could be in for a tough trip west.

Should Union lose here, they will become only the second side since St Pauli to lose their opening game of the second half of the campaign in each of their first three seasons in the Bundesliga.

Disciplinary issues could come into play as Union had a man sent off in three of their four competitive away H2Hs. All things considered, I predict a home win at what looks to be around the right price, I think a 2-1 Leverkusen success has a good chance of success in this clash.
