In the odds, the leader Leverkusen is the favorite for winning the game listed at -300, +475 in case of a draw, and +1000 for a Bremen victory.
Bayer Leverkusen arrives at the match as the unique Bundesliga leader with six points and is the only team with a perfect performance on the German football this season. They have won their two games against Borussia Dortmund and Hertha Berlin. On those games, they have scored six goals and received two, with a goal difference balance of +2.
“Winning away is a good starting point, but it could have been even better if we had won by a larger margin,” Leverkusen head coach Roger Schmidt said.
“There were many good moments from us, especially in the second half, but we could have been more efficient. Had we been more clinical it would have been a clearer result. We deserved a bigger win”.
On the other hand, the Bremen arrives as the ninth place of the league with only two draws against Hertha Berlin and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and with zero on their goal difference balance.
Statistically, on the last six years Bremen has not been difficult for Leverkusen. Since the 2009 Cup Final (1-0 for Bremen), Leverkusen is unbeaten against this team winning five of the nine matches they have played since 2009, including three winning on the last three home games.
For this game, Leverkusen has two ruled out players. The club captain and fellow midfielder Simon Rolfes and Julian Brand, both with collateral ligament ankle problems.
