Betting TipLeverkusen to Win
Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to put pressure on second-placed Borussia Dortmund this weekend as they take on FC Köln. Meanwhile, the visitors will still have their sights set on a European finish, and will need the points to close the gap on Freiburg.
Bayer Leverkusen are currently sitting comfortably in a Champions League place in the Bundesliga standings. However, they could extend their advantage over RB Leipzig with a home victory against FC Köln this weekend. The hosts will also be looking for the points to close the gap on Borussia Dortmund, who are currently second.
Leverkusen have won three of their previous five games in the Bundesliga and will be looking for a fourth win in six this weekend. However, they will need to recover after some set backs in recent weeks, as they have won just once in their previous three, and were held to a draw in the Bundesliga last weekend.
However, their draw last weekend was likely seen as a positive result as they managed to take a point from their fixture at the Allianz Arena. Thomas Muller scored an own goal just before the half time break to gift Leverkusen a draw.
FC Köln are the visitors this weekend, and will be looking for a second win in five games to improve their chances of finishing in a European place this season. At present, they sit five points outside of the Europa League places, and seven outside of the Champions League spots.
Their recent form has been pretty poor, as they have lost twice in their previous four, and have won just once. They were beaten in their latest fixture in the Bundesliga, as they lost 1-0 at home against Hoffenheim.
