VfB Stuttgart vs Bayer Leverkusen (Bundesliga, 18.10.2014)

Bayer Leverkusen intend to keep the pressure on Bayern Munich for the first place in the table by winning against a Stuttgart side on the brink of relegation after seven games. The hosts have only managed to win one match so far, and crashed from the DFB Pokal after a loss to Bochum. Meanwhile Bayer Leverkusen are on the 4th place in Bundesliga with 12 points and two wins in four matches.

Stuttgart have the means and the squad to produce an upset if Ibisevic finds his scoring niche. Harnik is another valuable choice for the goalscorer market. Didavi will be missing out on this match, and according to German media Alexandru Maxim is tipped to take his place despite being in a not so good form. Daniel Ginczek is under doubt even for the selection, as the player was hit with the flu virus and had to leave the training session due to fever. Abdellaoue is undergoing special rehabilitation exercises, but does not have a return date set.
Bayer Leverkusen might not be in the greatest form to challenge for the title, but they have been unbeaten in their last four matches, but looking at statistics their weak link is the defense. Papadopoulos, Castro and Rolfes will be missing from the squad, while Kiessling is tipped to deliver the goals. However, the attention will be on Karim Bellarabi, the player to impress everyone in his debut for Germany’s national team to the point where he received a Man of the Match award for the game against Poland. The player has three goals for Leverkusen and four assists in just seven matches.

Leverkusen might turn out to be too tough for a frail Stuttgart to handle, which is why Ladbrokes gives them 2.05 odds for an outright win as opposed to Stuttgart’s 3.50. Both teams to score has 1.61 odds, Leverkusen to score first has 2.20 odds, and the visitors to keep a clean sheet in the first half 3.00 odds. Stuttgart for both halves has 5.75 odds, Leverkusen 3.10 and we’re betting 8 units on Leverkusen winning the second half at 2.20 with Ladbrokes.
