Bayer Leverkusen will face Werder Bremen in the third round in German Bundesliga. The game will take place at at BayArena in Leverkusen. Before this match Bayer is on first position with 6 points, while “The River Islanders” are on ninth position with 2 points.
Bayer have had a strong stard to the season – winning their first two Bundesliga games and also a pair of Champions league games to qualify for the Group stages. A few days after this match, on September 16, Bayer began its participation in the Champions League. Graduates of Roger Schmidt visit Monaco in France in match from Group “C”, where aremore teams Benfica and Zenit. Roger Schmidt is likely to rest some of the main players who are fully rested for the visit in France .
Bayer Leverkusen played very strong when it comes to fights in their own stadium. In their last five games at home, they have three wins and two draws. One of their success is precisely against Werder with 2: 1 at the end of last season. Regarding clashes with Werder Bremen, Bayer is a series of three consecutive wins against this team, its stadium. At the other extreme is the presentation of Bremen as a guest. The team from Bremen will win in their last four games away from home in the league (three losses and one draw).
Werder recorded one victory since the start of this season after beating amateur Illertissen in match from the first round of the tournament in the German Cup. Success, however, came very difficult for Werder, who had to play an extra time against this opponent and the match ended 3:2. In Leverkusen Robin Dutt’s team will try to remain undefeated this season and should be more aggressive if he wants to get at least to a point in this match.
Bayer look to be a more balanced side this season. They have had an early benefit of a couple of European games to help them get into match fitness. For this game, however, will choose slightly unusual bet, as the coefficient is quite good. We rely on under 3.5 goals, hoping that the team will play the home team a little more mellow with the thought of upcoming match in Champions League.
