Start time: 17:30 UK
The two of teams with ambitions to participate in the Champions League next season – Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha, face each other in a match of the 32nd round of “Bundesliga”. The game is on Saturday, 30 April from 17:30 GMT at “BayArena” in Leverkusen.
The hosts are in top form, having won their last six league games and almost two months unbeaten. Their good results they climbed to 3rd place in the standings with a total of 54 points, five more than their upcoming opponent, who is fourth. In the last round Bayer recorded a very important victory, beating Schalke 04 3:2 in Gelsenkirchen. Their third straight win away from home they consolidate third place after some of their competitors have made missteps.
At home Roger Schmidt’s men are flawless after that disastrous defeat by Werder Bremen 1:4 at the beginning of March. Then they recorded three consecutive wins without conceding a goal, as empty-handed from Leverkusen left Hamburg, Wolfsburg, and Eintracht Frankfurt. But now they face a far stronger team that will do anything to keep his place in the Top 4 and stop subsidence in the standings.
The team of Hertha long time was the third position, but their weak results in recent times their bones in place entitling directly into the Champions League. The Old Lady won the only point of their last four matches, but their program was not at all easy. Fall Hertha started with the visit of Borussia Monchengladbach which was lost with 0:5. Then Berliners failed to win last Hannover at home, drew 2:2 and this result might lead to their next defeat – 1:2 away from Hoffenheim.
In the last round Hertha did not find the strength to oppose the leader Bayern home and lost 0:2, but in the upcoming match “BayArena” will strive to record first win of 19 since March, when beat Ingolstadt 2:1 at home.
If Bayer wins the upcoming match will book a place in the Champions League next season and given the form of both teams, I expect them to win. Furthermore, Roger Schmidt’s charges were flawless in his last two households Hertha, so is unlikely to make a mistake this time.
