Tip Bayer Leverkusen - Wolfsburg
Bayer Leverkusen are third in the Bundesliga after beating Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday. They host sixth placed Wolfsburg who can draw level with them on points if winning this game. The win over Dortmund was an important one for Leverkusen. It was their first league victory since mid-December when beating FC Koln. That was their eighth win in nine league games but it was followed by a run of three losses and a draw. It was a tough fixture list though with the defeats inflicted on them by top eight sides Bayern Munich, Union Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt, the last two both being away losses. It was nearly four straight defeats as they had to come from behind to get a point at home to Werder Bremen. Then came Tuesday when they beat Dortmund 2-1 at home. A goal 10 minutes from time secured them the three points, their fourth home league win of the season. Only one of their eight has been lost, the home defeat to top-of-the-table Bayern Munich and it took a 90th minute Lewandowski goal to secure that win. Only three of their last 16 home league games have been lost, two to Bayern Munich and the other in May to....Wolfsburg.
Tuesday night also saw Wolfsburg get a win. They beat Mainz (one from bottom in the Bundesliga) 2-0 away but had to wait til the second half for their goals. As is the case with their opponents, the win ended a poor run of league form. Wolfsburg had gone three league matches without a win with two draws (both of which they trailed in) and an away loss to Borussia Dortmund. They had only lost one of their last 13 matches in the Bundesliga before that. Away form has seen them win only two of their nine league games. Only two have been lost though (at Bayern and Dortmund) with five ending up level. Only in two of their last 18 away league fixtures have they failed to score but seven of the last ten have seen both teams score. This should be an open match and the tip is for both teams to get on the scoresheet.
Key points Bayer Leverkusen - Wolfsburg
Both teams have scored in seven of the last ten Wolfsburg away league games.
Five of the last six Bayer Leverkusen games have seen both teams get on the scoresheet.
Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight Bayer Leverkusen home league matches.
Conclusion Bayer Leverkusen - Wolfsburg
Both teams are in the top six and could well be in the Champions League next season. To do that they will need to build on the good wins they had on Tuesday. Bayer are strong at home but don't keep that many clean sheets (four in the last 15 home league games). Their opponents fall into the same category and a bet on both teams to score looks a good one to make. A side bet on a draw might come up too.
