Bayer Leverkusen stumbles seriously
Leverkusen is undoubtedly in crisis.
Only 1 point from their last 4 matches in the Bundesliga, with only 2 goals scored in them, are indicative. But even more noticeable is their bankruptcy on the ground. No excuses for last-minute goals or individual mistakes are acceptable.
This is because it is Bayer Leverkusen’s style of play that leads to these failures. They are the most gambling team in the entire Bundesliga. They play on top of the risk in attack. This leads to frequent losses of control and dangerous counterattacks by the opponent.
Aspirins leave a huge gap between the lines, trying to press very high. At the beginning of their attacks, they are also high risk because they start with a few passes between the goalkeeper and the two central defenders. Individual mistakes are simply inevitable.
Bayer Leverkusen are the 9th hosts. Which not only does not match their overall ranking, but once again shows how incapable they are of leading the game. They have only 3 wins from 7 households.
Borussia Dortmund is on fire for success
Dortmund are in 4th place, just below today’s opponent only because of a worse goal difference. I have already mentioned that it is completely unnecessary to look at any statistics for this team from the period before Terzic’s appointment.
Now Borussia Dortmund is playing willingly again. And hardly anyone but Bayern Munich could stop them. The draw with Mainz was absolutely undeserved and the result of a lack of luck.
I suspected one of their old weaknesses with the lack of motivation against bottom teams. But it turned out that they had literally taken Mainz to the match.
Forecast for Leverkusen – Dortmund
Now Borussia Dortmund have the perfect opponent. And I will explain why.
1. Fortuna has to repay them for the injustice done against Mainz.
2. Bayer Leverkusen are in total crisis. But more importantly, they are also very vulnerable against strong counter-attack opponents.
3. Against Leipzig, it was seen that Dortmund are just such a team that prefers a counter-game.
4. Peter Bosch is a former coach at Borussia and many of Dortmund’s current players will be twice as motivated against him.
A clear victory for the Black and Yellows is my choice for prediction. And I support it with an almost maximum bet. But because of the low price for the “2” sign, I will add a second component – the result of the half. Because of which I will reduce exactly the amount of the bet.
