Bayer Leverkusen – Schalke, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BAYER - SCHALKE
Bayer have ambitions to enter the top 4 and are definitely given a great chance to achieve this goal. They did something magnificent – 4 consecutive wins. Of course, it is important to note that 3 of them were over very weak teams, but the last one was the most impressive – 6-1 over Eintracht, who are the big competitor for the top 4. Frankfurt have no win of 4 games and the goal difference they have got worse in the last game. Bayer now have to rely on two wins and a new fail of Eintracht or just to score a lot of goals against Schalke today.
Schalke does not fight for anything, so we will see a more aggressive approach from them, which is not typical for the team during the campaign. No doubt their season is terrible. They have not had many victories as a guest in the league – just four, but not over strong rivals. Schalke stopped Borussia Dortmund in their march to the title in the last round, defeating them with 4-2 as a guest and it was probably their best game during the season.
Bayer must improve their goal difference, so we expect to start with goals in the first half, but also to try to score as many goals as possible by the end of the game. Schalke concede a huge number of goals as a guest and their overall defense is very weak, while the attack of the hosts is great and they score goals with ease. Forecast – Bayer to score in both halves at 1.73.
