Coming into this fixture, Bayer Leverkusen should be brimming with confidence as they sit one point off the league leaders, Bayern Munich, in third place. So far this season, the Company’s Eleven are unbeaten in the German Bundesliga after eight games played and are on a current win streak of four games in all competitions. A win here on Sunday is needed if Peter Bosz’s men are to stay in the running for the title.
Hertha Berlin approach this fixture in abysmal form, with two wins all season whilst suffering five defeats. This has placed Bruno Labbadia’s men in 13th position, only three points off the relegation zone on a goal difference of -1.
One player who has been outstanding for Leverkusen this season is Argentinian striker, Lucas Alario. In his last five Bundesliga fixtures, he has netted seven goals including three braces, whilst the Argentine is also Bosz’s top scorer in the side and the fourth-highest in the league. With his incredible form coming into this fixture, he should be fully confident to score in this clash.
As of now, odds for Lucas Alario to score and Bayer Leverkusen to win is priced at 15/8.
