Leverkusen – RB Leipzig – Bundesliga – Prediction and Preview: 18th November 2017
Unbeaten in the last six stages, the host team seems to have managed to find the constant it needs to climb to the European Cups. H.Herrlich’s offensive style begins to take shape, with Bayer’s third Bundesliga attack after Dortmund and Bayern. At the age of 25, Kevin Volland is the main marker of the 6-time team in the first 11 stages. With three wins and two draws so far, Leverkusen is one of the few teams who have not yet known defeat on their own. In each of these offensive games he found at least twice the way to the opposing goal.
On the other hand, the victory of the previous round with Hannover, score 2-1, was the fifth in the last six stages. Thus, the guests climbed to the second position in the ranking at only four lengths behind the leader. Poulsen and Werner returned the game after they scored in the 70th and 85th minutes. Werner is the main marker of the team these season. However, the three defeats suffered so far in the championship have always come on foreign ground. Thus, the “bulls” need a general mobilization if they want to repeat the outcome of Dortmund. Stefan Ilsanker is injured and will have.
