Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart Prediction & Betting Tips

Looking for some awesome Bundesliga tips? You’re at the right place! Here’s a Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart prediction, along with all the interesting facts about this match, which are guaranteed to help you out with choosing the right bets. So, with no further ado, let’s start our talk about the Friday’s battle of BayArena!


Bayer Leverkusen

BayArena, a 30,000 seater is the place where Bayer Leverkusen used to be considered nearly unbeatable. But, that hasn’t been the case this season. Out of five home matches, they lost three, winning a total of only four points along the way. Of course, their poor form hasn’t been confined only to the games played at their stadium, but away matches as well.

And their poor run has brought them very close to the bottom of the Bundesliga. After 11 round, they are at the 13th place, out of possible 18. For a team that’s playing in the Europa League, such a low position is not acceptable.

But, it seems that their form is bound to improve at some point. And their fans hope it won’t come too late. The thing is that they have some really fantastic players in the team, particularly in the final third. Actually, their lethalness has been proved several times already this season. For example, they smashed six goals in the net of Werder Bremen in Bundesliga less than a month ago, followed by a 5:0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in DFB Pokal.

A funny thing is that both of those big victories happened when they played away from home. Maybe the time has come to dome something similar, this time in front of their own crowd?


If Bayer Leverkusen have been terrible this season, what’s the word that can describe the form of Stuttgart? Disastrous? With eight points after 11 rounds, Stuttgart are on the very bottom of the table. The only silver lining here is that there’s still plenty of time left for them to get away from the relegation pit, but in order to do it, they need to start playing better ASAP.

And they did show a sign of improvement in the previous round, in which they beat Nurnberg 2:0 in an away match. But, before that win, Stuttgart lost four games in a row. And their poor form does seem strange, because Stuttgart are not a bad side.

They finished on the seventh place last season, with only four points fewer than their next opponent. And the players who achieved the last season’s success are still more or less in the team. Actually, they spend more than €40M on signing new players.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart Prediction

This seems like a very tricky game to predict, particularly because both teams need points. Both teams have pretty decent players, but both sides cannot be proud of their recent forms. My opinion is that we’re gonna see a close match that’s gonna end either as a home win or a draw. Still, a much better betting option, in my eyes, is focusing on goals. I think we’ll see at least three of them.
