On Saturday afternoon, Bayer Leverkusen host RB Leipzig at the BayArena in the Bundesliga, as the visitors attempt to keep pace with leaders Bayern Munich.
Bayer Leverkusen have enjoyed a mixed start to their Bundesliga campaign so far. The side currently sit ninth in the German top-flight table, having picked up 16 points from their 11 league games so far this season.
The home side are six games unbeaten in the Bundesliga, having recorded three wins and three draws. Last time out, Heiko Herrlich’s side drew 1-1 at Augsburg.
Leverkusen are strong on home soil, having lost just one of their last ten Bundesliga games at the BayArena. However, six of those ten home games have finished in draws.
RB Leipzig are enjoying another strong season in the Bundesliga. They are currently second in the table, four points behind reigning champions Bayern Munich.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have a good recent record in the Bundesliga, winning five of their last six games in the German top-flight while scoring at least two goals in four of the five wins.
Last time out the visitors recorded a 2-1 win over Hannover, after suffering a 2-0 defeat at Bayern in their previous league outings.
Leipzig have a mixed recent away record in the German top-flight, as they have won two and lost two of their previous four games on their travels. The omens are good for an away win, though, as last season the visitors did the double over Bayer, winning this fixture 3-2.
