Schalke vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview
Schalke started good in the new Bundesliga season and after six rounds they are standing at the 7th position. Their performance at the beginning of the season was very good, but they lost the last two games against Hoffenheim and Bayern Munich, so they will be fully motivated to beat Bayer Leverkusen upfront their supporters. Home side failed to score in the last two matches, so they have to improve their performance, especially in the attack, in order to make good result. their striker, Bentaleb, is the only shine spot in the attack, so against Bayer they have to play much better and stronger. Last season Schalke lost at home against Bayer Leverkusen 0-1, but they have managed to beat them away 1-4. Interesting fact is that the last 5 Bundesliga matches between Schalke vs Bayer Leverkusen were finished without home win, so Schalke will try to stop that tradition and win this game.
Bayer Leverkusen stand at the middle of the table in Bundesliga and they believe that deserve better position, so the match against Schalke is very important for them. Visitors will try to repeat their success from the previous season when they beat them 0-1 at the VELTINS-Arena, but home side also want three points so the match between Schalke vs Bayer Leverkusen could be the perfect for betting on goals and that’s the betting tip and prediction for this game. Why? Well, Bayer play very offensive football, while on the other side their defence is very shaky. In the six Bundesliga games this season, visitors score 12 goals, while their defence conceded 10 goals. Volland, who has already scored 4 goals, is very good in the attack, so home side will have to pay attention on him in order to secure their net. I’m sure that Bayer Leverkusen will score at least one goal on this match, but on the other side it will be hard for them to make clean sheet against Schalke away.
