Die Werkself’s recent good form continued last time out, as Bayer hammered Hacken 4-0 at the BayArena in the Europa League on Thursday night. The win means that Xabi Alonso’s team has won five of their last six games in all competitions.
Bayer picked up a highly creditable 2-2 draw at reigning champions Bayern Munich last time out in the German top-flight. The draw ended a three-game winning run for Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.
The home side have been potent in front of goal of late in the German top tier, having scored at least two goals in all four of their Bundesliga games this season.
Bayer Leverkusen have a strong recent home record in the German top-flight of late, as they have won six of their previous eight league games in front of their own supporters.Heidenheim form guide
In their opening two Bundesliga games, the visitors suffered back-to-back defeats against Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim. However, since the losses, Heidenheim have picked up four points from their last two league outings.
A 4-2 home win over Werder Bremen in their last outing in the German top-flight was their first-ever victory in the Bundesliga. The game was another high-scoring league outing for the visitors, as all four of their Bundesliga this season have produced over 2.5 goals.
Heidenheim has lost at Wolfsburg and drawn at Dortmund in their only two away matches in the German top flight.What am I backing?
Bayer Leverkusen have been excellent this season and highly prolific in front of goal. I am backing Xabi Alonso’s team to record another victory in a high-scoring encounter.
