Saturday Bundesliga action from the Bay Arena, as Bayer take on Stuttgart.

Saturday’s clash at the Bay Arena- sees fifteenth placed Stuttgart, travel to thirteenth-placed Bayer in the Bundesliga.

Bayer Leverkusen go into this fixture with 15 points secured

Bayer suffered an away loss to FC Köln in their last outing, they will doubtless be keen get a positive outcome in this fixture.

Also, another fixture and another win for Bayer, winning is becoming habitual for them and this is the mark of a team. With 15 points, they currently sit thirteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 4 wins, 7 losses and 3 draws having won four fixtures, drawn three games, and lost seven meetings.

Playing at home, Bayer have won two matches, drawn two meetings, and lost three fixtures.

Bayer Leverkusen will have 18 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Bayer will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (23). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Moussa Diaby (5), Jeremie Frimpong (5), and Kerem Demirbay (3). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Bayer so far, having conceded 26 goals in their last fixtures so far.

Bayer’s squad will likely be depleted of two of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.

Stuttgart’s Bundesliga season, has so far seen them gain 14 points, going into this game

With Stuttgart having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Michael Wimmer’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Also, suffering five losses in eight fixtures is a terrible run of form for any club, Michael Wimmer’s Stuttgart will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. Now they have 3 matches won, 6 games lost and 5 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fifteenth place, with a total of 14 points having won three games, drawn five meetings, and lost six fixtures.

Stuttgart now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have drawn three games and lost three games matches on the road.

Victory for Stuttgart would take their points tally to 17 so far this season.

Michael Wimmer could be missing up to one of their players through injury or illness for the game on Saturday.
