Bayer Leverkusen to Win

Bayer Leverkusen’s results under Xabi Alonso have been the very definition of hit and miss this season, though Die Werkself have a great chance to put some points on the board at Hertha Berlin’s expense on Sunday. The visitor’s form on the road has been wretched this term and they have lost each of their last six and eight of their ten assignments on their travels overall since August. The dire run is hard to ignore and our first Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin prediction backs the hosts to prevail.

Over 2.5 Goals

When Leverkusen and Hertha Berlin last met back in September, they went toe-to-toe in a thrilling encounter which eventually finished 2-2. That was the third time in four encounters between the clubs when over 2.5 goals were produced and supporters could be in for another feast of attacking football when Bayer and Hertha meet again on Sunday. Five of Die Alte Dame’s last six matches on the road delivered at least three goals and we’re tipping that pattern to continue this weekend.

Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin lineups and team news for Sunday’s Bundesliga tussle below.

Leverkusen

Andrey Lunev and Charles Aranguiz are out for Leverkusen, though both players should be available to feature again in just a couple of weeks. Bayer picked up a useful point at Freiburg in their last match after a 1-1 draw, though they are still all the way down in 11th spot in the Bundesliga standings.

Predicted Lineup for Leverkusen: Hradecky – Frimpong, Kossounou, Tapsoba, Bakker – Demirbay, Andrich, Palacios – Diaby, Hlozek, Azmoun

Hertha Berlin

Wilfried Kanga, Chidera Ejuke and Kelian Nsona make up a trio of injured attackers for Hertha Berlin this week. Die Alte Dame moved up to 14th place last weekend when they beat Augsburg 2-0. Hertha are still just one point clear of the drop zone in the German top tier, however.

Predicted Lineup for Hertha Berlin: Christensen – Rogel, Uremovic, Kempf – Richter, Tousart, Cigerci, Serdar, Plattenhardt – Ngankam, Niederlechner

Player to Watch – Mitchel Bakker

Mitchel Bakker was one of Bayer Leverkusen’s best players last weekend when Die Werkself drew 1-1 at Freiburg and the 22-year-old-full-back set up his team’s goal with a sharp assist in the second half. The former PSG starlet will hope to put his rounded skillset to good use again on Sunday.
