Bayer Leverkusen face a difficult assignment when it comes to this weekend clash at the Red Bull Arena, with Xabi Alonso in charge of a team who have been going great guns this season. It’s no mean feat to be leading the German Bundesliga having not lost a match so far, with a return of forty-five points coming from seventeen games played so far this season.

If Leverkusen can continue this points rate, then the title might be theirs. Fourteen wins have been achieved thus far and the latest of these was a 1-0 triumph away to Augsburg after signing off before the winter break with some high-scoring wins. A 5-1 Europa League triumph over Molde was followed by handsome wins over Bochum and Frankfurt.

Leipzig aren’t really in the title running after racking up thirty-three points, although Marco Rose’s side are capable of claiming a victory here, with the team somehow losing to Frankfurt despite having eight shots on target compared to their opponents’ one. It’s worth noting that the team average nearly three goals per home game.

We can see both teams scoring in this encounter, with goals likely to be on the cards with both teams chasing a victory. There are going to be plenty of shots on target from both sides and it could be worth considering a bet on the draw. The reverse fixture saw Leverkusen land a 3-2 victory and perhaps a similar scoreline could be on the cards.
