Bayer Leverkusen vs FC Heidenheim Betting Tips: Leverkusen to win / Over 2.5 goals / BTTS

Xabi Alonso´s Leverkusen have been in superb form since the start of the new Bundesliga season and come into this fixture currently top of the Bundesliga pile.

Picking up three wins and a draw from their first four league games of the campaign, Bayer maintained their fine form with a dominant 4:0 win against Hacken in the Europa League on Thursday.

Scoring 25 goals in seven unbeaten matches across three competitions, Bayer will be full of confidence but will be wise not to under-estimate the league newcomers.

Having picked up just one point from their first three games of the season, Heidenheim secured their first-ever Bundesliga victory with a thumping 4:2 win against Werder Bremen last weekend. 

Goals have been in free-flow with Heidenheim in recent weeks. The visitors have seen BTTS and over 3.5 goals scored in each of their last three Bundesliga games. A total of 15 goals were scored in those matches.

While Leverkusen will be fancied to claim the points, I also fancy a high-scoring affair with BTTS, and at least three goals scored. Bayer´s brilliant form and Heidenheim´s buoyancy following their first-ever top-flight victory should prove the necessary ingredients to serve up an entertaining Bundesliga contest.

With that in mind, I´m backing BTTS, with over 3.5 goals scored and a home victory at the BayArena.
