Interestingly, Die Fohlen were fast out of the traps and stormed into a 2-0 lead after just seven minutes, with the team then putting the game out of reach thanks to Rami Bensebaini’s penalty before they conceded a consolation goal.

Marco Rose’s side will now look to strengthen their grip on a Champions League spot when they clash with Leverkusen, with the home side having a very outside squeak at challenging for the Bundesliga title, although they need to keep winning in order to overhaul the top two.

They have been chipping in with plenty of goals in the German top flight this season, averaging two per match and their home form is very solid thanks to nine wins, two draws and just two defeats.

Perhaps home advantage won’t be as much of a factor and they will clash with a Bayer team who have won seven of their twelve games on the road this term, with Peter Bosz’s side having enjoyed an excellent run before the lockdown and they have to be treated with respect.

Indeed, Leverkusen signed off with three consecutive victories which included a 3-1 Europa League win at Rangers, with Kai Havertz among the scorers and the German midfielder has been getting rave reviews this season.

We’re essentially talking about two of the strongest teams in Germany who are fairly hard to split and perhaps the best route is to play things relatively safe and back three or more goals to be scored during the ninety minutes.

While the odds are fairly short, it seems as though both teams are going to take an offensive approach for different reasons and this should lead to an open game of football.
