After their fantastic performance in the 3-2 win over Mönchengladbach last weekend, Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to build on that performance when they play host to Bochum on Wednesday night.

Despite the offensive strength of Xabi Alonso's men, ten goals in the last three games alone, their back line remains a major problem. The last win was the fifth time in the last six league games that the team did keep a clean sheet, and it is unlikely that Lukáš Hrádecký will keep a clean sheet this week.

Like the hosts, Bochum got off to a good start to the new year with a 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin last weekend and will be hoping for a similar result. However, they have struggled in recent encounters with Leverkusen, failing to win the last three meetings. In addition, they have won only one of their eight away games in the league this season, which makes the task even more difficult.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Bochum Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

With four wins from the last four Bundesliga matches and a good record in the direct meeting of these two teams, Leverkusen are the favorites for the three points.

And considering how entertaining the recent games of the two teams have been, a 2:1 in favor of the hosts is the most likely result of this match.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals

Bayer Leverkusen will not be able to call up their talented forward Patrick Schick, who is struggling with a groin problem.

Wednesday's game would also be too early for Charles Aranguiz, who is suffering from a calf injury. Jeremie Frimpong and Callum Hudson-Odoi, on the other hand, are fit again after their brief spells out with illness.
