Bayer Leverkusen hosts Schalke 04
Thrilled after their great win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, Bayer Leverkusen hosts Schalke 04 in a match from the 14th round of the Bundesliga. We will discuss it with you in our free football betting tips for the weekend.
It’s a rare thing to beat Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena and it always feels very good. Bayer Leverkusen did it in the previous round when they left the Bavarian capital with a 2-1 win. The big hero for the visitors was the Jamaican ace Leon Bailey, who scored both goals in Manuel Neuer’s net. At the end of the game the centre back Jonathan Tah was sent off with a direct red card, so he won’t be avaliable for the next match.
After this win Bayer Leverkusen are now 7th in the Bundesliga with 22 points. They are just two points behind the Top 4, so for them it’s an even bigger motivation to continue like this.
Meanwhile Schalke 04 are having a much better season than the previous one. Right now the Royal Blues are third in the table with 25 points, just 3 points behind the leader Borussia M’gladbach. The American manager David Wagner successfully changed the way the team performs since his arrival at the summer. Maybe you remember how mediocre Schalke were during the last campaign.
In their last five Bundesliga game the Royal Blues are unbeaten – three wins and two draws. In the previous round Schalke hosted Union Berlin at the Veltins Arena and secured a 2-1 win. Benito Raman and Suat Serdar secured the win with goals for the hosts.
Against Bayer Leverkusen Schalke 04 will be without the services of Salif Sane, Benjamin Stambouli, Alessandro Schopf and Nassim Boujellab who are all injured.
