Bayer Leverkusen and Arminia find themselves at contrasting ends of the Bundesliga table coming into this fixture, but a win for either side will be huge following the international break.
Bayer Leverkusen have started the season in excellent form, and they are one of the only teams left standing in the Bundesliga this season that are yet to lose a game. Leverkusen have won four from seven so far this season, with those four wins coming their last four games. They have scored an impressive 14 goals so far this season, and have conceded just eight.
Leverkusen showed just how impressive them can be in their last fixture as they beat fellow Champions League hopefuls Borussia Monchengladbach. Leverkusen dominated the possession throughout the game, and took their chances when they got them. They registered four shots on target, and all of them ended up in the back of the net. Lucas Alario scored twice, while Leon Bailey and Julian Baumgartlinger added second half goals to ensure the win. Leverkusen will be hoping to end the weekend with five consecutive victories in the Bundesliga.
Not many experts gave Arminia much of a chance this season, as they have a much smaller budget than every other side in the Bundesliga. They defied those expectations to take four points from their opening three games, but the tide has quickly turned against them in recent weeks. They will come into this fixture having lost their last five in the Bundesliga. Arminia have already conceded 15 goals this season, and have scored just four. They are the lowest scorers in the Bundesliga at present. Arminia were hammered in their last Bundesliga fixture by Union Berlin, as the Capital club ran out 5-0 winners.
