Bayer Leverkusen vs Schalke PredictionBayer Leverkusen vs Schalke Prediction and Preview for Saturday's Bundesliga fixture.

Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 14
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen)
It’s still early days but manager David Wagner will already set his sights on the league title, knowing that they are well on their way to achieving this amazing feat.

Bayer Leverkusen have not fared too well in h2h encounters against this foe and are considered slight underdogs heading into this fixture despite home advantage.

Peter Bosz will be looking to infuse some much-needed confidence into this Leverkusen side as morale within the club’s dressing room is pretty abysmal at the moment. A win for the home side is definitely on the cards but they will have to dig deep to clinch maximum points.

Bayer Leverkusen v Schalke Team News

Bayer Leverkusen looked a whole different team last time out against fourth-placed Bayern Munich, pulling off a shocking 2-1 victory over the reigning champions, even at the Allianz Arena. Very few people gave them a chance against this star-studded Bayern side but Die Werkself proved the doubters wrong, giving the Bavarians a shocker.

With ten minutes left to play, one of their players was given his marching orders by the referee. However, despite the setback, the visitors remained organized defensively, holding off Bayern Munich till the end of the game to claim the much-needed three points.

Sitting seventh on the log, three points adrift of Schalke in third place, the home side are now unbeaten in their last five games across all competitions.

Schalke, on the other hand, are not showing any signs of slowing down in their bid to bring the highly-coveted La Liga trophy to the Gelsenkirchen district come the end of the season. They have been stringing up back-to-back victories in the league, the most recent of which was a 2-1 home victory over Union Berlin.

As they have been scintillating to watch on home turf, the same can be said of their displays on their travels. They have not admitted defeat in any of last five Bundesliga fixtures on the trot. In fact, they are spotting the second-best away record in the cluster at the moment, having lost just one in their last six outings.

Leverkusen’s record at the BayArena is also worth mentioning as they have been utterly ruthless on this ground. They have stumbled just once on this ground all season and have salvaged no less than a point in four of their last seven fixtures here.

Recent h2h encounters between these two teams at this venue have ended in draws, so the safest punt would be backing a double chance in favor of Schalke 04.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Bayer Leverkusen: Joel Pohjanpalo, Mitchell Weiser, Jonathan Tah.

Schalke: Benjamin Stambouli, Salif Sané, Alessandro Schöpf, Nabil Bentaleb.
