Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen)
As two of the biggest German clubs prepare to tackle each other, we should anticipate a nerve-cracking game of football. Bayer Leverkusen are a strong club in their own right, and will be determined to put forth a solid title challenge this season.

Despite beginning this new campaign on the wrong foot, dropping two points in Wolfsburg last week, Die Werkself will be buzzing ahead of this fixture versus Leipzig. Surely, Bosz’s men will be looking to pick up their first win of the term here.

Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Team News

This transfer window is one Bayer Leverkusen supporters will want to put behind them as soon as possible. With their club failing to secure a top-four spot last season, they could not hold on to some of their best players.

As soon as the season came to a close, Premier League outfit Chelsea came knocking for Die Werkself’s midfield maestro, Kai Havertz. The German star pushing for a move, Leverkusen couldn’t manage to hold him down as he sought for new pastures.

Later on, Kevin Volland also left the BayArena, favoring a move to French side AS Monaco. Now, Leverkusen are without two of their key players for the new season, and will need some significant reinforcements in attack.

Receiving handsome fees for both Havertz and Volland, the Company’s Eleven will, perhaps, feel quite justified for their sales this summer. Kickstarting the new season away in Lower Saxony, Leverkusen set out to tackle Wolfsburg.

Deemed huge favorites for the win, Leverkusen struggled to muster gilt-edged chances and often looked clueless going forward. Ultimately, on-lookers were forced to endure an unexpected drab goalless game as both sides headed home with a point in the bag.

Time is ticking and Bosz’s charges have to get into their rhythm soon enough. Work has to be done in that attacking department if Leverkusen are to begin hitting the target again. Die Werkself will be up against it when they lock horns with giants RB Leipzig in a few hours’ time.

Having played out an impressive 2019/20 domestic campaign, Leipzig are one of the sides tipped to challenge for the Bundesliga title this term. Even though they have had their own fair share of player losses this summer, the Red Bulls do not seem phased one bit.

Without the services of Patrick Schick and Timo Werner, Leipzig secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over Mainz in their opening fixture. Poulsen, Forsberg and Haidara came up with the goods as Nagelsmann’s charges safely posted all three points on the board.

Here are some stats for your savoring – RB Leipzig have emerged victorious in their previous four away games in the league whilst Leverkusen have won six of their last eight games on home turf. Suffice it to say that these two are in pretty good form ahead of this game.

Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Predictions

These two teams are pretty wounded, coping with a few key departures. That said, Leipzig seem to be coping better with their summer losses than Leverkusen. That opening weekend win over Mainz will surely have done the Red Bulls’ confidence a world of good.

Given Leverkusen are still pretty much out-of-sorts at the moment, count on the visitors to capitalize on the opposition’s slump to record an important win.
