Bet of the Day: Bayer Leverkusen to take the points at Stuttgart
Die Werkself unbeaten in last 10 games
The weekend’s Bundesliga action kicks off on Friday night, as Bayer Leverkusen look to continue their impressive run of results against an inconsistent VfB Stuttgart side.
Die Werkself head to the Mercedes-Benz-Arena looking to continue a run which has seen them chalk up five wins in an unbeaten 10-game streak.
They’ve won two of their last three away games, including a 5-1 demolition of Borussia Monchengladbach. That result was Die Fohlen’s heaviest home loss in seven years.
Stuttgart haven’t been bad at home, but Leverkusen have dominated this fixture for some time. They’ve won nine of the last 12 Head-to-Heads, drawing the other three.
They meet Die Schwaben at a good time, with the hosts managing just four points from as many games. Coral’s Bet of the Day is Bayer Leverkusen to Win at 23/20.
Herrlich’s men could win by sizeable margin
The BayArena club won 2-0 on their last visit to this venue. They’ve chalked up 10 goals in three meetings with Die Schwaben, conceding just three.
When Leverkusen have won this season, they’ve tended to do so in style. 10 of their previous 12 victories in all competitions have come by a margin of two or more goals.
Stuttgart have lost four league games by multiple goals already this season, including defeat to relegation-threatened Hamburger SV last month. The Bayer Leverkusen -1 handicap looks very good value at 3/1.
Lethal Volland can deliver the first blow
The undoubted star in Leverkusen’s unbeaten run has been striker Kevin Volland. The 25-year-old has netted nine times in the last 11 games, including goals in each of the last four.
A continuation of that run looks good against a Stuttgart side who have managed a single clean sheet in their last nine outings.
The German international is 13/10 in the Anytime Goalscorer market. However, with the former 1860 Munich forward opening the scoring in five of those 11 matches, First Goalscorer: Volland looks the better value at 4/1.
