Bayer Leverkusen to Win
Hannes Wolf's interim reign has not been able to stem Bayer Leverkusen's slide in the Bundesliga. Die Werkself have lost five of their last seven matches in all competitions. Moreover, they are on a three-match losing street at Bay Arena. However, the odds are in their favour as Bayer takes on the challenge of the woeful Schalke 04. The Royal Blues ended Borussia Moenchengladbach's seven-match losing streak and Hannes Wolf hopes they are a sign of good luck for them.
Total Goals Under 2.5
Akin to Schalke's last Bundesliga outing against Marco Rose's Moenchengladbach, this fixture witnesses them take on another out-of-form side. Leverkusen have managed just two goals from their last three home games, while the Blues have managed the same tally from their last five matches on the road. Moreover, three of their last five H2H meetings have ended in the Under 2.5 being realized.
Both teams to score – No
FC Schalke have only scored once in their last five matches in all competitions. On the contrary, the hosts have a better record at three from the same amount of games. With both sides needing points to revert their form, it looks likely that they will look to score early and then hold the lead.
Leverkusen vs Schalke: Team News and Match Preview
Despite their recent poor form, Bayer Leverkusen are placed sixth in the Bundesliga points table and have a three-point deficit to Borussia Dortmund in fifth. Die Werkself suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Hertha Berlin before the international break and will be looking to correct their course against the struggling Schalke 04. Lucas Alario will be looking to enter double figures and end his five-match barren run. However, it remains to be seen whether he gets the nod ahead of Patrik Schick, who has eight goals to his name and hit the back of the net twice in his last two Bundesliga outings.
FC Schalke 04
At any other point in their history, the Schalke 04 job would have been a step up for Dimitrios Grammozis. The seven-time German champions are slated for relegation to the second division and have not helped their cause. It has been their inability to get points off equally woeful squads, as evidenced by their 0-2 home defeat to Borussia Moenchengladbach. Young Matthew Hoppe is worth watching for the Royal Blues as he heads the goalscoring charts. Expecting too much from the American would be in vain as he is on a personal 10-match goalscoring drought.
