Bayer Leverkusen - Week 15

Mainz vs. VfB Stuttgart

 

Match Date: 13 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Coface Arena

 

Pitted against VfB Stuttgart, Mainz now has the chance to stop its losing streak. The club’s winless streak in the last 6 matches was the reason behind falling out of the top 10. Suddenly, its impressive run was put to a temporary stop.

 

Mainz’s aggressiveness in pulling out a win is a definite threat to Stuttgart. The club is already at the rock bottom pit of the table despite winning 2 of its last 6 matches. With Mainz showing strength at home, there’s a chance for Stuttgart to be readily thrashed.

 

Prediction

Mainz 3-0 VfB Stuttgart

Bayer Leverkusen vs. Borussia Monchengladbach

 

Match Date: 14 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Bay Arena

 

Two of Bundesliga’s football betting favorites will meet in an attempt to catapult their rank and ensures a strong finish. These are no other than Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach.

 

Bayer currently sits on the 4th spot of the league table. It had an unbeaten run in 3 of its last 6 matches, until they were stopped by a rampaging Bayern Munich. They should be able to move on from the said loss if they’re serious in remaining as one of the league’s elite.

 

Meanwhile, Borussia Monchengladbach has just return from a series of unfortunate events. Three (3) of its last 6 matches ended in a defeat, a complete opposite of what Bayer has experienced yet, they’re on their way to recovery after snatching  a win against the capital club. Hertha Berlin.

 

Expect a down the wire match between the two teams, with a possibility of ending in a stalemate.

 

Prediction

Bayer Leverkusen 1-1 Borussia Monchengladbach

VfL Wolfsburg vs. SC Paderborn

 

Match Date: 14 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Volkswagen Arena

 

Achieving 4 clean sheets at home is never an easy feat and this is what Wolfsburg has accomplished. It is therefore not a secret why they are Bundesliga’s 2nd best team. Due to this, Paderborn bears the pressure of winning the said match. Compared to their opponent, the newly-promoted club hasn’t won a single match in its last 4 encounters. The club fares well compared to other new faces in the league, but they need to feature in this clash to avoid a slip.

 

Prediction

VfL Wolfsburg 2-0 SC Paderborn
