Bundesliga: Leverkusen Will Not Let Up Against Listless Stuttgart

Bayer Leverkusen vs VfB Stuttgart

Bayer Leverkusen can extend their win streak to four when they’ll host VfB Stuttgart this Saturday at the BayArena. Many fans and pundits believe that this is a winnable game for Die Werkself given their disparity over their visitors in the Bundesliga standings.

Because of their undefeated run, Bayer Leverkusen have strengthened their Top 3 position with 38 points. On the other hand, VfB Stuttgart are at the relegation zone, placing 17th with only 18 points.

Gerardo Seoane’s side is coming off of a statement victory against Borussia Dortmund in the last time out, which signifies that they’re slowly peaking at the right time.

They are favoured by the pre-match SBOTOP betting odds to win again. And if their reverse fixture earlier this term provides any indication, it says that this match is for Bayer Leverkusen’s to lose.


Talking Points

Bayer Leverkusen’s confidence is sky high

The game between Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund clearly did not disappoint as it was another explosive encounter. Die Werkself lost in the reverse fixture, but this time they were the ones who came out on top.

BVB got off to the worst possible start when Manuel Akanji scored an own goal in favour of Bayer Leverkusen, but that didn’t last long as Thomas Meunier headed home a cross from Julian Brandt to draw level.

When Florian Wirtz scored five minutes later, the floodgates have opened for Gerardo Seoane’s side as Robert Andrich netted a beautiful free kick and Jonathan Tah and Moussa Diaby added two more goals.

Steffan Tigges pulled one back for BVB, but they were already thoroughly embarrassed at that point.

Leverkusen top scorer Patrik Schick shockingly didn’t score for this game but he’ll be more than happy to take all the three points.

This just goes to show that Bayer Leverkusen aren’t just a one-man team and stopping their free-scoring ways is quite a daunting task for the opposing clubs.


VfB Stuttgart still winless in 2022

The wins have yet to come for Die Schwaben, but they’ve been playing better in these past few games.

Since losing to SC Freiburg three weeks ago, Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side have scored four goals in their last two games in all competitions, although one was a friendly win and the other was a close loss against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Sasa Kalajdzic scored his first goal of the season against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday following a shoulder injury that sidelined him for the rest of 2021, and the team is hopeful that his account will increase in these next few weeks.

Besides Kalajdzic, the goals for VfB Stuttgart have to come from other sources in order to salvage their top-flight status.

Die Schwaben will look to Omar Marmoush and Silas Katompa Mvumpa to ease the scoring load for Sasa Kalajdzic. Marmoush was instrumental for Egypt in the recently-concluded AFCON while Mvumpa has yet to regain his form after being out due to injuries and suspension.


History

Bayer Leverkusen hold the clear advantage over VfB Stuttgart here in the Bundesliga as they’ve only lost one of their last 19 league encounters (W14, D4).

Overall, Die Werkself have won 38 Bundesliga fixtures against Die Schwaben, which is the most against any other squad.

To further illustrate their contrasting fortunes, in 2022 alone, Bayer Leverkusen have already secured 10 points after four games – which is their best joint-start to the second half of a Bundesliga season in club history. Meanwhile, VfB Stuttgart have only gained a solitary point after the same amount of matches.

Their last meeting took place in September where Bayer Leverkusen came away with a 3-1 win despite being reduced to 10 men.

Robert Andrich opened the scoring in just two minutes, although he was sent off after the half-hour mark, then it was followed up by goals by Patrik Schick and Florian Wirtz. Orel Mangala was the only VfB Stuttgart player who scored in the said match.  


Betting Tip 

??
Bayer Leverkusen vs VfB StuttgartBayer Leverkusen Asian Handicap -1.50 @ 2.25
February 13, 1:30 (GMT+8)

The Bundesliga 2022 odds have Bayer Leverkusen as the overwhelming favourites to win. Die Werkself are installed at 1.44, while VfB Stuttgart are priced at 6.00 and a draw is at 4.80 in the 1X2 market.

Bayer Leverkusen are also inching closer to a Top 2 spot because of their win streak, so we expect them to come out strong and they’ll fancy their chances this weekend.

Despite their losses, VfB Stuttgart have shown gradual progress in these past few weeks. However, that hasn’t produced enough positive Bundesliga 2022 results so far and they’re in for another long weekend with yet another defeat.
