Bayer Leverkusen is hosting Eintracht Frankfurt at BayArena in round 31 in the German Bundesliga.
Leverkusen has been playing much better as of late, and after 3 games without a loss, Leverkusen was playing against Bayern, and they didn’t have a good time. Leverkusen has had only 39% of ball possession in that match, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 83% of the correct passes. Considering they played against Bayern, Leverkusen has had a decent game, but they still ended up losing this match 2-0. With 47 points, Leverkusen is in 6th place, which is the Europa League qualifications spot, but they are still not safe. Leverkusen is desperately missing a striker, and their leading goalscorer has only 10 goals. Diaby has added 8 assists. Fosu-Mensah will miss this game because of the injury, while Baumgartlinger, Bender, and Arias are all still questionable, but close to being ready. Defensively, Leverkusen has been solid so far this season with only 34 conceded goals, which is surprising because they were losing games left and right earlier this season. in the attacking end, Leverkusen was solid with 48 scored goals so far, but they are not scoring goals consistently. With the Champions League out of reach, the Europa League is Leverkusen’s reality right now, but they need a couple of more wins to stay on that spot.
Eintracht is in 4th place, which is the Champions League spot, but what impresses me in Eintracht is their goalscoring ability and the way they are playing soccer. Eintracht has scored 61 goals so far this season, which makes them the third-best offensive team, while their defense isn’t great, but it’s far from the worst in the league with 44 conceded goals. Eintracht was hosting Augsburg in their last Bundesliga game, and they were solid with 60% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. After a loss to M’gladbach, Eintracht needed a win to get back on track, and they did get it here against Augsburg. The final score of this match was 2-0. Andre Silva has scored 24 goals so far for Eintracht, and he is the second-best goalscorer in Bundesliga. Kamada added 5 goals and 10 assists. Toure and Ache are injured, while Rode is suspended because of the yellow cards. Eintracht has 4 points advantage over Borussia, and they can afford one slip up for the rest of the season, but they better stay focused and in good form for these last 4 games in Bundesliga or it might cost them a lot.
When playing at home, Leverkusen has not lost to Eintracht in their last 7 games. The home team has dominated this matchup, but I’m not confident Leverkusen can get a win here. I think Leverkusen could score a goal, but Eintracht is just so much better on both ends, which is why I will stick to goals here, on both sides.
