Bayer Leverkusen vs Frankfurt Soccer Prediction Today
Leverkusen, who thrashed Leizpig 4-1 at their rivals’ home and face-off in a match that complemented the twenty-ninth round on Monday, April 9, reached fourth place in the Bundesliga standings when they reached 48 points (13 wins, nine draws and seven losses).
This position is the last in the classification zone for the main tournament of clubs of the Old Continent, although it compels the team to dispute the eliminatory phase before arriving at the stage of groups. The direct place for the group stage is reserved for the first three places. Frankfurt, with 46 points (13 wins, seven draws and nine losses) is in fifth place. Which would give the right to play the next edition of the Europa League.
That would even allow Leverkusen to regard the draw as a good result. After all, you only have to score at home, which you have achieved in 11 of the 14 matches (six wins and five draws) by the Bundesliga to avoid being overtaken by Frankfurt.
However, this would not only prevent him from trying to improve the quality of his position, since he still has a chance of overtaking Schalke (52 points) and Borussia Dortmund (51 points), who will face Sunday, the life of Leipzig, sixth placed with 46 and still in the fight for a place in the Champions League.The three wins and a draw in the last five games of the German Championship, however, show a team on the rise, although coach Heiko Herrlich faces many problems for the duel this Saturday.
Important players such as title goalkeeper Bernd Leno (29 matches in the 2017/2018 German Championship) are handed over to the medical department; the Brazilian left-back Wendel (24 games, two goals); and the Aránguiz socks (22 games, one goal) and Sven Bender (27 games, two goals). All are considered absolute holders and will depend on new examinations to determine if they can act.
The number of casualties is increased by striker Lucas Alario (19 games, seven goals). But the reason is another: suspension. With minor importance, they are not used regularly as holders, are also in the medical department and reduce the options of Herrlich midfielder Vladlen YurChenko (without performances) and striker Joel Pohjanpalo (seven games, a goal).
Werder Bremen’s 2-1 home defeat and home 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim reduced hopes for Frankfurt fans in their bid to return to the Champions League. Especially because the team has yet to split up between the Bundesliga and the German Cup. On April 18, he will face Schalke at the opponents’ home trying to reach the final of the tournament for the second consecutive season.
The table of the last rounds of the German Championship also can not be considered of the most favorable. The team will face Bayer Leverkusen (outside), Hertha (home), Bayern (outside), Hamburg (home) and Schalke (outside).
The good news for coach Niko Kovac is the absence of concussions or suspensions. Thus, he has all his cast available to face Leverkusen.
