Bayer Leverkusen 2-1

Reason for tip

With nine goals scored across their last five games, Leverkusen should have enough in the tank to rack up a couple of goals against their local rivals, but Cologne will put up a strong resistance after going unbeaten in five of their last six home games.

Cologne vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

  • Bayer Leverkusen ended a six game winless run in style with a 5-0 victory last time out.
  • Cologne failed to win seven of their last nine competitive games.
  • Cologne are suffering something of an injury crisis with nine players either injured or doubtful.

Derby day despair for the Billy Goats

Competing in Europe and maintaining strong domestic form simultaneously seems to have caught up with Cologne as they have now won just two of their last nine games.

That run has seen their league position slip and with no European football to speak of anymore, the winter break could be coming at a good time for them. Although Cologne are unbeaten in five of their last six home games, that is something of a false flag as their overall form suggests they’re in decline.

That’s not to mention Cologne’s significantly reduced numbers for this clash with the likes of Florian Dietz missing and many others returning from injury, but perhaps not in time for this Rhineland Derby.

Xabi Alonso can hit the winning trail

A six-game winless run was ended in emphatic style as Bayer Leverkusen knocked Union Berlin from the top of the table with an amazing 5-0 victory. That result was arguably the shock of the weekend, so next on the agenda is to end a seven-game winless run across all competitions.

Leverkusen have scored three goals across their last three away games and gave La Liga giants Atletico Madrid a run for their money therein (2-2). Facing their local rivals here adds an extra layer of spice, but it shouldn’t be too much of a big ask to stop their away rot here.

We’re going for Bayer Leverkusen to win in the win & BTTS market, with a smaller stakes play on a narrow 2-1 correct score. Both teams scored in five of Cologne’s last six home games whilst Leverkusen haven’t recorded an away shutout since August, so any positive result could well come in entertaining circumstances.
