Leverkusen vs Hannover – Hosts to maintain home dominance
Bayer Leverkusen have valued Hannover as one of their favourite visitors in recent seasons and this is likely to remain the case when Mirko Slomka’s team next leave the BayArena.
Bundesliga betting odds have Leverkusen as the 8/15 favourites to beat Hannover and this is unsurprising given that they have won all of their last three home clashes with the opposition.
Meanwhile, they have also kept clean sheets in all of these victories and tasted defeat in just one of the last seven showdowns between the pair.
Hannover will be buoyed by the opportunity to leapfrog Leverkusen into second in the Bundesliga table if they can secure the three points.
Furthermore, they have alternated wins and losses across their last five games and if this sequence is to continue then they are due to beat Leverkusen.
Hannover’s odds are 5/1 to beat Leverkusen, but to do so they will have to end Leverkusen’s current run of seven wins in their last eight games in all competitions.
With Hannover not only struggling to score on their latest trips to Leverkusen, but also generally on the road in the Bundesliga this season, it makes the most sense to expect the hosts to with without conceding.
Leverkusen average close to two goals per home game this season and so a 2-0 victory is more than likely and can be backed at 6/1.
However, with Leverkusen struggling to find a regular goalscorer this season, it may also prove profitable to opt for them to win 1-0, which is available at 13/2.
Alternatively, those believing there will be more goals can get 10/1 on Leverkusen winning 3-0.
