Bayer Leverkusen hosts Hertha BSC
Bayer Leverkusen hosts Hertha BSC in a match from the 22nd round of the German Bundesliga.
Leverkusen is having a very good season so far, being 2nd in the Bundesliga at the moment. Leverkusen doesn’t have any real chances to catch up with Bayern at the top, but their main goal is a Top 4 finish and a return to the Champions League.
Right now Leverkusen is on par with the 3rd RB Leipzig – both teams have 35 points, with Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 following with 34 points won so far. How you could see, the fight for a Champions League qualification is bigger than ever.
So far Bayer Leverkusen has a record of 9 wins, 8 draws and 4 defeats. Currently, they are the team with fewer defeats in the after Bayern Munich, of course. In their last five matches, Leverkusen won twice, made two draws and lost only once – against Bayern.
In their last game, Bayer Leverkusen made a 0-0 draw during the visit to Freiburg.
Now Leverkusen is about to host Hertha BSC.
Last season Hertha qualified for Europa League, but right now the team from the capital is 11th in the Bundesliga standings. Hertha have 27 points won so far and a record of 6 wins, 9 draws and 6 defeats. Right now Hertha is in a run of three consecutive draws and they are unbeaten in the same amount of games. For the last time, Hertha lost against Stuttgart away from home.
It’s clear that Hertha won’t have any problems to keep their place in the Bundesliga, but in same they could hardly do anything significant until the end of the campaign.
Leverkusen is the favourites here, of course. They are a better team than Hertha and they are 2nd in the standings, which tells us a lot about their quality.
