Bayer Leverkusen – Stuttgart
Bayer Leverkusen hosts Stuttgart in a game from the 12th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s take a look at this clash at the BayArena in Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen are not having a good season so far. They are currently 13th in the league with 11 points won and a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 6 defeats. It’s safe to say that Heiko Herrlich’s team is not performing in the way everyone expected of it.
In their last five games Leverkusen won just once – against Werder in Bremen. It was a really impressive with – with 6-2, but in the next two games Leverkusen suffered two defeats against Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. It just shows how inconsistent are Leverkusen at this moment.
In their last fixture Bayer Leverkusen conceded a 0-3 defeat during the visit in Leipzig. They were totally outperformed by the home team, who got the win with goals from Yussuf Poulsen and Lukas Klostermann.
Being on this position is not something which Leverkusen can accept. That’s why they will try to change their fortune as soon as possible.
Stuttgart are in a worse situation at the moment. They are currently 18th in the league standings, being at the bottom with just 8 points won so far. Their record shows 2 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses. They were in a run of four consecutive losses, before enjoying a 2-0 win against Nurnberg in the previous round. Timo Baumgartl and Erik Thommy scored for Markus Weinzierl’s team.
Now Stuttgart will try once again to perform like this away from home. They meet a team which also have some serious difficulties at the moment. Just like them, Leverkusen need points and they need them now. The difference between these two teams at the moment is just 3 points, so we shall expect a pretty even game.
