*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Bayer Leverkusen notched a 97th-minute equalizer at Dortmund last weekend to push their unbeaten record this season to 45 games in all competitions and the bookies have given the new Bundesliga champions a 60% chance of beating Stuttgart on Saturday to prolong that incredible surge without a defeat.

However, our football tips indicate that we think there might be something in this clash for Stuttgart. The visitors have lost only one of their last 12 league matches and Leverkusen could be distracted by their upcoming Europa League semi-final against Roma.

Chris Fuhrich's performances for Stuttgart have been recognised by Germany – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Chris Führich

Chris Führich has already shown an ability to mix it with Bayer Leverkusen’s title-winning performers this season and the Stuttgart midfielder managed to net in two previous meetings with Die Werkself in league and cup earlier in the campaign,

Führich can have an impact again

26-year-old Führich has enjoyed a productive campaign for highflying Stuttgart in 2023/24 and the winger has already had a hand in 14 different Bundesliga goals for his team, split evenly between goals and assists (seven each). Führich will be eager to prove himself against the champions again this weekend.
