Tip Reasoning

  • Bayer Leverkusen have won their last three Bundesliga away games with 11 scored and only two conceded.
  • Cologne lost 5-0 at Hoffenheim last week.
  • Patrick Schick has scored seven goals in his last seven Bundesliga appearances.

Werkself can forget their woes in Rhein derby

After losing 5-1 at home to Bayern Munich last weekend, Bayer Leverkusen can get back to winning ways when they take on a Cologne side smarting from an even-bigger defeat in Sunday’s Rhein derby.

Bayern blasted off into a 5-0 lead at BayArena then seemingly took their foot off the gas as Die Werkself were able to grab a consolation, so we will have to see if such a defeat has significantly damaged confidence in Leverkusen. Coach Gerardo Seoane rested half his regulars in the Europa League on Thursday so there should still be enough freshness in his line-up for this clash against a side still undefeated at home.

Effzeh’s 5-0 capitulation in Hoffenheim last week wasn’t in keeping with a season which has seen them hold two of last season’s top five to 1-1 draws while picking up wins against all the lower half teams they have played.

Leverkusen better on the road

They gave the champions a bit of a scare in Munich too, losing a five-goal thriller in August so we won’t underestimate their prospects of winning the derby. But Leverkusen are probably a better road team than at home at the moment and the manner of Cologne’s defeat to a mid-table opponent last week means we are inclined to believe the visitors win this.

Patrick Schick is a man to follow in the anytime goalscorer betting after his impressive run of seven goals in his last seven Bundesliga appearances. He was one of the players rested in midweek too.

As they always do, Leverkusen will focus on attack so there’s a good chance this will be a high-scoring game again. Seoane’s side have scored 12 and conceded three in their four away games this season and, also because their win in Stuttgart was by 3-1, that is the scoreline we think best fits what a normal away win for Leverkusen is nowadays.
