Bayer Leverkusen currently sit in the dreaded fifth place of their domestic league which would mean they qualify for next season’s Europa League rather than the Champions League if the standings remained that way.

Thankfully, Die Werkself have several matches to get themselves into the top four and they’re warm favourites to claim a Monday night victory for their Bundesliga match away at the Weserstadion.

Florian Kohfeldt’s team are in something of a pickle right now, having earned just eighteen points from twenty-four matches played and their form needs to drastically improve if they are to stand any chance of survival.

Werder have been particularly shocking at home this season, winning just once in front of their own supporters although their won’t be any fans cheering them on for this first clash since the COVID-19 lockdown.

All German Bundesliga matches will be played behind closed doors for the remainder of the 2019/20 season, with Bremen having lost eight of their eleven home matches this season and they have managed to score just eight goals.

Their only home win of the season came against Augsburg at the beginning of September, while they had conceded at least two goals in each of their eight Bundesliga games leading up to the lockdown, so we can expect their defence to be breached on this occasion.

We think Bayer Leverkusen represent a decent bet considering they are having a typically strong campaign near the top of the Bundesliga. Peter Bosz’s team were fourth last season and they have been in excellent form since Christmas.

Indeed, it will have been galling for them to stop playing when they did considering they had just landed a 3-1 victory away to Glasgow Rangers in the Europa League after previously knocking out Porto.

Young forward Paulinho looks set to promise plenty after scoring a brace against Eintracht Frankfurt, with Kai Havertz among the goals in 2020 and the German had plundered five goals in eight matches pre-lockdown.

While the pandemic has meant a long delay before Bundesliga football can return to our screens, the plain fact is that Bayer Leverkusen look to have enough quality to overturn their opponents and start their top four charge again.
