Sunday’s Bundesliga action concludes with a massive showdown at the BayArena as Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt battle it out for the Champions League promotion.
Sitting sixth in the table with a three-point deficit to their next rivals, the visitors have to pick up all three points in order to remain in the race for a top-four finish. Having hit form at the best possible moment, the Company XI have gone from three consecutive Bundesliga losses to three straight triumphs. Still, Peter Bosz’s men have endured mixed fortunes over their past five BL home outings (W3, L2), with all three of their wins in that period ending with the same 2-0 scoreline. Importantly, all three of Leverkusen’s BL home losses in 2019 have come against teams from the upper half of the table, with Bayer conceding over 2.5 match goals twice across those clashes.
Meanwhile, the visitors’ drop-off in form has seen them fail to wrap up all three points in their last three BL fixtures (D2, L1), with both of those stalemates featuring under 2.5 goals. Additionally, they go into this meeting off the back of a 1-1 home draw with Chelsea in their midweek’s Europa League battle, hoping to snap a four-game winless run against Bayer at this venue (D1, L3). Notably, the Eagles have conceded 11 goals on their last four visits here, scoring just two in the process. But, Adi Hütter’s players are unbeaten in all six of their BL away games in 2019 (W3, D3), with Eintracht netting over 1.5 match goals four times during the run.
