Leverkusen vs Hacken: Top free betting tips

Get ready for an electrifying clash as Bayer Leverkusen, fresh off a thrilling 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich, gear up to commence their UEFA Europa League campaign. Their opponent, BK Häcken, has secured their first-ever spot in the group stages after a series of attempts.

Match result & Both teams to score prediction: Leverkusen & BTTS

With Leverkusen's scintillating start to the season and Häcken's determination, this promises to be an intriguing battle. However, it is difficult to see beyond the German side take the points from this meeting. They are unbeaten in the 2023/24 campaign, registering four wins and a draw. Xabi Alonso's men have only kept two clean sheets in these meetings and we do not see this statistic increasing with the Swedish side delivering a counterattacking blow in a losing cause. Based on this, we are backing Leverkusen to triumph with goals observed at both ends of the pitch.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 Goals

Add Leverkusen to a match equation and goals are bound to come aplenty. In their five matches thus far, only one has seen three goals with all the rest seeing four or more wherever they have taken the pitch. Hacken enter this meeting after scoring three past Halmstad and they should trouble the scorers in this meeting. We are anticipating fireworks to fly in Leverkusen with over 3.5 goals observed in this Group H draw.

Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Leverkusen

Only Bayern Munich limited Leverkusen in the current campaign as Die Werkself only scored two goals. In each of their other outings, they have scored three or more goals. The Europa League fixture will catch their nerves but it will not stop them from sticking to their guns. We expect goals to flourish as both sides vie for points. The German's should up on top with a 3-1 scoreline in their favour.

Leverkusen vs Hacken: Form, recent games, and news

Bater Leverkusen preview

Bayer Leverkusen has kicked off the season in a blistering fashion, remaining unbeaten in their first five matches. In their four wins and one draw, they have averaged an astonishing 4.2 goals per game. The 1987/88 UEFA Cup winners are set to entertain fans and neutrals alike and are also the strong favourites to top Group H after their semi-final run in the previous UEL edition. Xabi Alonso's men impressed in their 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich and will look to take the game to their Swedish rivals in this meeting.

BK Hacken preview

After eight previous attempts, BK Häcken has finally broken into the group stages of a UEFA competition. Despite securing their group-stage berth with a 3-1 victory against Aberdeen, Häcken arrives with a mixed domestic form, suffering two losses and a paltry win in their last three league matches. The absence of Ibrahim Sadiq, who recently moved to AZ Alkmaar after a double in the win against Aberdeen, has left them slightly depleted in the attacking department at a crucial juncture.
