Bayer Leverkusen is close to reaching the right to call their season a complete disaster after being able to record only a draw in their last five matches. Now for the match against Hoffenheim they are only able to get a slight edge from the bookmakers to win if they want to keep any Champions League hopes alive.
The loss against PSG in the last 16 of this year’s Champions League only went to deepen the misery of the team which was completed on Allianz Arena when they were dominated from head to finish by the present and future Bundesliga Champions. Stefan Kiessling is their main hope for goals, though we would probably back Sidney Sam to score at any time. The press has regarded the hosts as being rather daft about this whole situation and it remains to be seen whether they can remember what it feels like to win.
Hoffenheim is on the 10th place, but unlike Bayer Leverkusen, they are sporting two wins in their last six matches. Firmino is their main goalscorer with 13 goals out of which two are penalties. They won with 6-2 against Wolfsburg and went on to lose four to nil against Schalke. The worst result so far was recorded in the match against Mainz where not only did they lose with 4-2, but the four goals were conceded in the second half after leading in the first one with 2-0.
Bayer Leverkusen to win the first half is priced up at 2.25 with 12BET, while the eventuality of them winning to nil is at 3.75. We are going to bet 7 units on an odd number of match goals at 2.00 with odds from the same bookie.
