Tip Reasoning

  • Bayer Leverkusen have won five of their last six Bundesliga games (D1) and nine of their last 11 in all competitions (D1, L1).
  • Schalke are winless in Bundesliga this term, drawing three and losing six of their nine starts.
  • Leverkusen’s last four league victories have all produced over 2.5 goals, with Die Werkself netting 13 times in total.
  • Schalke have shipped 28 goals in their nine league matches.

Bayer to Swat Schalke Aside

High-flying Bayer Leverkusen are expected to readily brush rock-bottom Schalke 04 aside when the teams square off in Gelsenkirchen this weekend.

Leverkusen drew a rare blank in a 0-0 stalemate at home to Hertha Berlin last Sunday, but prior to that Die Werkself had been in tremendous goalscoring form.

They bagged 13 goals in their four previous matches and go into this clash at VELTINS-Arena unbeaten domestically this term and with five wins on the board from their last six Bundesliga starts.

A 2-3 Europa League victory in Nice on Thursday made it nine wins in 11 across all competitions for Peter Bosz’ stars and they should put their opponents well and truly to the sword here.

Schalke are in dire straits at the foot of the table after failing to win any of their nine opening fixtures (D3, L6) and they shipped three goals or more for the fifth time this term in a 4-1 pummelling at Borussia Monchengladbach last Saturday.

Punters are advised to get behind Bayer in terms of dealing out a similar punishment. Based on the stats outlined and the massive gulf between these sides, backing an away win and over 2.5 goals to be scored looks a cracking bet. Alongside, we’re also forecasting a 1-3 score-line for Leverkusen which will keep them well and truly in the hunt at the top of the table.
