Bayer Leverkusen are aiming for a fourth win in five home matches when they take on Hertha Berlin at the BayArena in their final game of 2018.

Betting Tips for the game
Bayer Leverkusen were able to come up with a 2-1 away victory over Schalke. This was only the third away success for Heiko Herrlich’s team.
Despite the superior home form this season, Hertha Berlin were held to a 2-2 draw by Augsburg in the midweek action. The result leaves Hertha Berlin with only two wins in the last six league matches.
Hertha Berlin picked up a 2-0 win in the last trip to the BayArena, which also happened to host the recent meeting between these two teams. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Bayer Leverkusen.

Hertha Berlin and Leverkusen may be separated by just three points in the league table but Pal Dardai’s men have struggled on the road with only two wins in eight. Leverkusen have picked up back-to-back home wins and there will be intense motivation to overcome the double suffered at the hands of this opposition in the 2017-18 campaign. Leverkusen have a forward line up that has been on song in recent weeks and our preview would back a win for the hosts.

Hertha Berlin win odds: 4.50
Correct Score odds
Leverkusen have averaged 1.5 goals per match at the BayArena in the last six, while Hertha Berlin have been defensively poor when it comes to away games after conceding close to 2 goals per match in the last six. Even though the latest meeting between the two clubs produced a low scoring game, it has not always been the case. Our correct score prediction would go with a Leverkusen 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Apart from the recent encounter back in February, Hertha Berlin and Leverkusen have only played out high-scoring matches in the last three seasons. Both teams have decent attacking potential – even if Hertha Berlin are missing a large chunk of players due to injuries, and their defences have not been the best around. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals in the game.

First Goalscorer odds
Lucas Alario has been in fine form for Leverkusen with four goals in as many games across two different competitions. The forward ended up coming up with the only goal of the game in Leverkusen’s last match at the BayArena.
