Bayer Leverkusen host Werder Bremen at the BayArena in a crucial clash between two teams fighting for a European qualification spot next season.

Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leverkusen were able to come up with a 3-2 victory over Hannover to make it back-to-back wins in the Bundesliga. Apart from the defeat against title challengers Borussia Dortmund, Leverkusen have been able to win all of the last six matches.
Werder Bremen made it eight consecutive matches without a defeat in the league after a 4-2 success over Schalke last weekend. Bremen became the latest team to take advantage of Schalke’s troubles, which resulted in Domenico Tedesco being sacked.
The reverse fixture produced a remarkable 6-2 victory for Bayer Leverkusen at the Weserstadion. The last game between Bremen and Leverkusen at the BayArena happened to be in the DFB Pokal when the home team secured a 4-2 win in extra time. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Leverkusen.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Bayer Leverkusen win at 1.60[/bet_tip_now]
Leverkusen have been in strong form over the last few weeks with the team managing to blitz past most opponents in style. Werder Bremen have been unbeaten in the last eight league matches and there is a strong resilience about the team, but Bremen’s last success in the league at the BayArena was in 2016. Leverkusen have been especially strong at home in recent weeks with five wins in six. The same cannot be said about Bremen’s away form, which does look mediocre with one win in six. Our preview would go with a win for Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Werder Bremen draw odds: 4.20
Werder Bremen win odds: 5.25
Correct Score odds
Peter Bosz has seen his team average close to 3 goals per game in the last six matches. Players like Kevin Volland have been in excellent form and Werder Bremen have reasons to be fearful of a big defeat after having conceded six in the reverse fixture against this opponent. Bremen have been able to score at least once in all of the away matches this season. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 Leverkusen win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bremen’s spectacular record of scoring at least a goal in each of the away matches this season should continue with most of the players in good form. Leverkusen are a team with just two clean sheets in the last six games. Our total goals prediction would go with more than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.44[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Kevin Volland has become the top scorer at Leverkusen with 11 goals this season. After a mediocre first-half of the campaign, the striker has been in imperious form in 2019. He has been able to score or assist a goal in seven out of the last 10 appearances, while he opened the scoring when Leverkusen thrashed Bremen in the reverse fixture. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Kevin Volland.
