Bayer Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Bayer Leverkusen need to find their feet following back-to-back defeats. Can they find form to beat Hoffenheim on Saturday? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Bayer Leverkusen to Win

The 2022/23 campaign has started in miserable fashion for Bayer Leverkusen and following back-to-back defeats in their first two assignments, they will be desperate to restore some positivity on Saturday. Hoffenheim came from two down to beat Bochum last time out, though they were tossed aside when the last faced Bayer in May (4-2) and they will fear a similarly heavy loss against their highly-motivated hosts on Saturday. With that result still relatively fresh in the players’ minds, we recommend siding with Bayer this weekend.

Over 1.5 Bayer Leverkusen Team Goals

Gerardo Seoane’s usually-prolific Bayer outfit haven’t quite clicked into gear as an attacking force this term, though they should have opportunities to blow the cobwebs off on Saturday. Hoffenheim shipped a noteworthy five goals in their first two fixtures of the new Bundesliga season and their poor defensive work could cause them a headache or two again this weekend. While they haven’t shown it so far, Bayer have an abundance of goal-scoring power in the final third and they are priced generously to net over 1.5 times against Die Kraichgauer.
