Bayer Leverkusen vs Schalke – Prediction (Bundesliga – 07.12.2019)




Preview and Teams Comparison.

A 2-1 away win over Bayern Munich last time out stretched Bayer Leverkusen’s unbeaten streak in all competitions to five (W4, D1), with all four wins seeing Leverkusen lead at half-time and score exactly two goals. Favourites to win here, if they do get a victory it could be emphatic – seven of Leverkusen’s last eight Bundesliga home wins have come via at least a two-goal margin. That favourites tag may worry home fans though, who have seen their team muster a paltry 28.57% win-rate as a home favourite this Bundesliga campaign (W2, D4, L1). However regardless of which way this game goes, expect a lively first period – Leverkusen’s home league fixtures have averaged 1.86 first-half goals this term.

High-flying Schalke have been one of the division’s most impressive away teams so far, losing just once on the road (W4, D1, L1), and netting an average of 2.17 goals per away game. Despite that impressive average, Schalke’s last three competitive away wins have come via a slim one-goal margin and featured both teams scoring. The entertaining visitors have now seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals in their last five competitive fixtures (W4, D1). Schalke scored before half-time in all of those games, something they’ve managed in two of the last three H2Hs held here (W2, D1).

Players to watch: Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey netted a first-half brace last time out – two of his three strikes this league campaign came in the 10th minute. Meanwhile, three of Amine Harit’s last five Bundesliga goals for Schalke were scored after the 80th minute.

Stat attack: Four of Leverkusen’s last five Bundesliga home games saw the opener scored by the 20th minute. Schalke’s last six competitive away fixtures witnessed at least one goal after the 75th minute. Schalke’s last seven competitive victories saw both teams score.
