Bayer Leverkusen vs Schalke – Top Predictions & Free Betting Tips

Bayer Leverkusen head into the match on the back of consecutive losses in two different competitions. After the 4-0 hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich during the last weekend, the team suffered a 2-0 loss against FC Porto in the Champions League. Schalke did not have any midweek action but the team did lose 3-2 at home against Augsburg in the last match.

Both teams to score – yes

Schalke have been quite disappointing and inconsistent over the last few weeks. However, they have at least been able to get a goal in three out of the last four matches. After failing to score in back-to-back games, Bayer Leverkusen will be glad to come back to home comforts, where they have been very reliable going forward. Leverkusen have not scored at home only once in the last five games.

Total goals over 2.5

Leverkusen have only been unable to score once at the BayArena this season. In two out of the last three home matches in all competitions, Leverkusen have been able to hit over 1.5 goals. Schalke remain decent going forward even if they have not been picking up a lot of good results. This match should witness over 2.5 goals with both teams having enough strength in the offensive areas.
