Last season, in each of the matches Bayer and Leipzig exchanged goals, but whether to expect an effective match on September 26 – we have prepared our forecast. How many teams will score?
Bayer failed last season – in general, Peter Bose’s team looked quite solid in the distance , but did not make it to the Champions League. This is due to several mistakes at the finish of the championship, which Borussia Mönchengladbach took advantage of, sending the pharmacists to the fifth line in the table.
In the Europa League, Bayer also failed to achieve success – in the playoffs, which took place in August, the club got in, but was eliminated outright from Inter, losing 1: 2 to the Italians in Dusseldorf.
In the summer, the team lost a key player – Kai Havertz went to Chelsea, Kevin Folland also left the club, and the forward went to Monaco.
These losses were not reflected in the German Cup match – the pharmacists defeated 7-0 Eintracht from Norderstedt. But in the Bundesliga , it was not possible to start with a victory – in the away match with Wolfsburg, Bayer looked unconvincing and was content with only a goalless draw , which did not allow them to rise above 10th place in the table.
Leipzig last season coped with their main task – the bulls had no goal to win the championship, but there were no problems with winning a ticket to the Champions League. Julian Nagelsmann ‘s team came to the finish line third, behind only Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
In the Champions League, the bulls have achieved historic success – they managed to reach the semifinals of the tournament. Having sensationally knocked out Atlético in the quarterfinals, Leipzig could not oppose anything to PSG, losing 0: 3, but even such a result of the tournament can clearly be regarded as a serious success.
In the summer, Leipzig, like their current rival, lost the leader – Timo Werner moved to Chelsea. However, so far the loss of the striker has not affected the attacking potential of the team – in the first round of the championship, the Bulls beat Mainz with a score of 3: 1.
Eight times the teams played each other in the Bundesliga and only in two of these matches they could not exchange goals
Bayer has hosted Leipzig four times and in only one of these matches have the pharmacists conceded less than two goals
Bayer has scored fewer than two goals in only one of their last four home games
In each of the last four league matches, Leipzig conceded
01.03.20 Leipzig Bayer eleven
10/05/19 Bayer Leipzig eleven
04/06/19 Bayer Leipzig 2: 4
11.11.18 Leipzig Bayer thirty
04/09/18 Leipzig Bayer fourteen
11/18/17 Bayer Leipzig 2: 2
04/08/17 Leipzig Bayer ten
11/18/16 Bayer Leipzig 2: 3
Bayer was unable to beat Wolfsburg in the first round, but it hardly makes sense to talk about the crisis in the team’s game, the wolves are not a simple opponent. Today the hosts will clearly strive to get all three points, the fight for a ticket to the Champions League is going to be hot, so the “pharmacists” will not retreat in a duel with a direct competitor – they always play attacking football at home and score a lot.
Leipzig also have a powerful attack, the bulls have already found a replacement for Werner, this should work in the Bundesliga, and in general the whole attacking game was not tied to Timo alone.
Both teams are not reliable in defense, but they score a lot, nobody will retreat today, so it makes sense to count on a productive match.
In our opinion, there will be goals in the match. We offer a combined forecast – both will score + total over 2.5 goals . In BC Winline, this outcome is offered with odds 1.87
