Leverkusen to Win
In their last fixture at home, Die Werkself dented Eintracht Frankfurt's ambitions of a top-four finish. They now have the opportunity to deliver a similar blow to Union Berlin's Europa League aspirations. The Berliners have suffered successive defeats on the road, with their scoring profligacy hampering their strides. The odds are in Bayer's favour given Union's form and their personal record of three successive victories at home.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
The last five matches at Bay Arena have seen three or more goals. Union Berlin have struggled on the road, scoring three goals and letting in eleven goals across the same period. Given the visitors recent poor away record and Leverkusen's proficiency in front of goal, the Over 2.5 is expected to come true.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Die Werkself have only been kept silent in two of their last ten home fixtures. In the same period, they have only managed to keep a single clean sheet. The H2H meetings also point towards the scorers being troubled by both sides. Out of their last five meetings, three have seen both sides getting on the scoreboard. With Leverkusen showing signs of nerves at home, Union will fancy their chances in getting to the final third.
Leverkusen vs Union Berlin: Team News and Match Preview
After taking over as caretaker manager, Hannes Wolf has arrested Bayer Leverkusen's slide. Die Werkself have registered three successive victories at the Bay Arena, scoring eight goals while shipping in an insignificant two. They will be looking to build on their home form as the struggling Union Berlin make the trip. Leon Bailey has scored three goals in Bayer's last two home fixtures and will be looking to add to his tally.
Urs Fischer can enter the Union Berlin history books by ensuring qualification to the UEFA Europa League. The Iron Ones still have a chance with equal points as seventh-placed Borussia Monchengladbach. To realize their ambitions, Union will have to arrest their slide in away fixtures, which has seen them winless in their last five road trips. This run has coincided with Max Kruse's barren run in front of goal, failing to hit the back of the net in six successive fixtures.
