Leverkusen have some potential problems coming into the game with Kevin Volland doubtful for the encounter. Such players are necessary in order to get the team out of a three-game losing sequence. Two of the last three away matches for Leverkusen have been defeats, but the team has held a strong record at the Mercedes Benz Arena with four wins and no losses in the last six trips. Stuttgart’s only glimmer of hope came about in the big home win over Hannover, but there has been a sea of disappointment since then. Our preview would pick a win for Leverkusen.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bayer Leverkusen have been on a losing streak where they have shipped an alarming number of goals. The sequence may continue even with Leverkusen trying to challenge for European qualification spots. This is largely due to Stuttgart’s poor defence even when comes to home games. The last clean sheet for Stuttgart at the Mercedes Benz Arena was in the first week of December. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
It is incredible that Leverkusen have opened the scoring in three out of the last five encounters. Kevin Volland’s form has been crucial during this period but Kai Havertz demonstrated his worth by coming up with a brace against RB Leipzig during the weekend. Havertz is now the joint top scorer at Leverkusen along with Volland, who is doubtful with an injury. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Kai Havertz.
