Frankfurt vs Leverkusen Predictions and Betting Tips
Frankfurt vs Leverkusen Key Stats
- The hosts have the second-best defensive record at home in the Bundesliga this season.
- No Bundesliga team has conceded fewer away goals than Leverkusen this term.
- Only 33% of Frankfurt’s home games have produced more than two goals during the current Bundesliga campaign.
Looking to bounce back
Frankfurt’s surge towards the top half of the table was halted last time out in the league, as they came off second best away against Hoffenheim, losing by three goals to two. That defeat brought an end to a four-game unbeaten run, though it’s not the end of the world as there was still promise to their performance, while they may even have been a tad unlucky.
At home, though prolific winners they are not, Sunday’s hosts know how to dig in and avoid defeat, losing just one of their six league games at Deutsche Bank Park. Unfortunately, they’ve only won one of the other five. Only three teams have conceded less home goals than Frankfurt in the Bundesliga this season, which is a real positive.
Visitors in rampant form
While the hosts tasted defeat last time out, Leverkusen cruised to victory over dead-and-buried Furth last time out, sharpening their attacking tools by scoring a whopping seven goals. They’ve now notched 11 in their last three league fixtures, each of which they’ve emerged victorious from, so there’ll be no lack of confidence in the away dressing room ahead of Sunday’s clash.
On the road, Gerardo Seoane’s men are one of the Bundesliga’s top teams. They’ve collected 15 points on their travels this term, a total that can only be bettered by league leaders Bayern Munich. They also have the joint-best defensive record away from the comforts of home.
Frankfurt vs Leverkusen Predictions
Given that both teams have scored plenty of goals of late, it’s not hard to think that the goals will appear when they take to the pitch on Sunday. The market certainly points towards a high-scoring game, though there’s reason to feel that ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ is a value-play at odds of 11/8.
The hosts know how to keep things relatively tight at home, conceding more than once in only one out of six this season, while the visitors have only conceded more than once in one out of seven on the road. Throw in that less than three goals have been scored in 66% of Frankfurt’s home games and a small play on the unders stands out as a the best option odds wise.
