Dusseldorf vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Match Preview

Saturday, August 24 – 09:30 EST – Merkur Spiel-Arena

Dusseldorf started their season on a positive note beating Werder Bremen 3-1 in their opening match. Hennings, Karaman, and Ayhan all managed to get on the score sheet for Dusseldorf. This Saturday they’ll be looking to build on their performance and get a win in front of their home crowd. Dusseldorf have won 3 of their last 6 matches, while Bayer Leverkusen have not lost in their last 6 matches. Furthermore, the home team has proven to be tough to beat in the Bundesliga. They managed to creep in the top 10 last season on the final matchday. Will they be capable of replicating last season’s success in Germany’s top division?

On the other hand, Bayer Leverkusen defeated SC Paderborn 3-2 in their opening match. They showcased how resilient they are in this match, not leaving any goals from the opposing team unanswered which led them to eventually earn 3 points. On Saturday, they’re taking the trip to the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf. The two teams have met on a number of occasions in the past years. Bayer Leverkusen have won six consecutive matches against Dusseldorf and will look to continue that streak on Saturday. The visitors will want to build on last season’s success after a top 4 finish which granted them a spot in the Champions League. We are expecting a tight match with goals between the two teams. For that reason, we think that both teams will get on the score sheet in this one.
