Bayer Leverkusen Preview

Bayer Leverkusen have finally returned to winning ways in the Bundesliga last time out, with Stefan Kiessling scoring a late goal against ten-men Schalke 04. Bayer Leverkusen controlled the game from the first whistle, but that’s because the hosts remained with ten men after defender Naldo was sent-off in the 4th minute. The win lifts Lever in 8th position in the Bundesliga table with 20 points after 14 rounds, five points off the top six. Lever managed a decent tally of 21 goals so far this season, but their biggest problems have been at the back. They have already conceded 21 goals in 14 rounds, which is the worst defensive record in top eight. However, Leverkusen looked much better recently, keeping a clean sheet in each of their last two games across all competitions. Bayer Leverkusen can count on their home form ahead of this clash, as they have only lost two of their last 15 home fixtures in all competitions while winning eight in the process. In addition, Roger Schmidt’s men have won their both meetings with Ingolstadt, including a 3-2 home victory back in May. Chicharito and Hakan Calhanoglu have been Leverkusen’s most influential players on the pitch throughout this campaign, as the pair have bagged 9 goals and 5 assists between them.

Ingolstadt Preview

Ingolstadt were winless in their opening ten games in the Bundesliga, but they improved significantly over the past few weeks. They have only lost once in their last four league fixtures and come into this clash on a high. Ingolstadt managed a 1-0 home victory over the unbeaten RB Leipzig, with Mathew Leckie being sent-off in the stoppage time. The win lifts Ingolstadt in 17th position with 9 points to their name after 14 rounds, just one point behind safety. Scoring goals has been their biggest problem throughout this Bundesliga campaign, scoring just 11 goals in 14 rounds. Ingolstadt have also struggled at the other end of the field as they hold the 4th worst defensive record in the division with just 24 goals conceded in 14 rounds. Their away form has also been a problem, as they have only won two of their last ten away fixtures in all competitions. Furthermore, Ingolstadt have lost both of their meetings with Bayer Leverkusen, scoring just two goals in this term. Lukas Hinterseer and Dario Lezcano have been Ingolstadt’s most in-form players so far this season, as the pair have bagged 6 goals between them.
