Bayer Leverkusen stand at the 8th position and their main goal this season is to finish in the Top 6 and play in some of the European competitions next season. Their primary goal is to reach the 4th position which leads in the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League next season. Borussia Monchengladbach, who stand at the 4th position, have only 6 points more than home team, but Bayer Leverkusen have one match less, so in the case of win they could get closer. The “only” problem for home side is their recent form. They are without win in their last 4 Bundesliga matches (0-1-3), so if they want to reach their goal they have to improve their performance, especially in defence. In the last 4 matches, including the match against Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League, they conceded 12 goals. Good news for home side is that their top scorer Javier Hernandez Chicharito back in team and will lead the attack on this game.

Hamburger SV stand at the middle of the table. They are not in the dangerous zone, but have only few points more than the first team in the relegation zone, so they want to secure their Bundesliga status for the next season as soon as possible. The good chance for make something and make positive result could be this match. Home team are not in the great form, their defence is very shaky, so HSV could use that and get back home with at least one point in their pocket. After three matches without victory, Hamburger SV have improved their performance and beat Hertha Berlin in the previous round. It was their second win in the last 11 Bundesliga matches. Visitors also don’t have impressive defence, while for this game they could be in trouble due to absences of two important defenders: Diekmeier (16/0 d) is injured, while Spahic (19/0 d) is out due to suspension.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Hamburger SV Prediction

Home side have an advantage of home field and they are closer to take all three points, but I can’t be sure in home win. Both teams have problems in defence and conceding many goals, so I believe this could another open match with at least three goals.
