Bayer Leverkusen vs Hertha Berlin preview, betting tips and prediction: Will Bailey continues to shine against Hertha Berlin
Bayer Leverkusen to win and BTTS @ 21/10 with William Hill
Hertha BSC Berlin to win @ 5/1 with Bet365
Leon Bailey is the brightest star in the Bundesliga and Bayer Leverkusen know it. They want to hang on to their biggest asset but know that they have a battle on their hands. If they are to lose him then they want to be paid handsomely. That’s why so many news reports came out this week about his £100 million price-tag.
WILLIAM HILL HAVE YOU COVERED!
The 20-year-old attacker has scored 10 goals in all competitions for Leverkusen – most of them being quite eye-catching. This is in addition to his five assists. Little wonder that all of England’s top clubs are said to be tracking him.
Leverkusen would rather ship him off to England than strengthen a direct rival. Bayern Munich are keen to keep Bailey in the Bundesliga but have form for baulking at the rising transfer fees of the current market. Germany have no such financial obstacle. An underage Jamaica international, Bailey has yet to make a senior appearance for any country.
Currently occupying second place in an outrageously competitive Bundesliga (minus Bayern, who are essentially in a league of their own), Leverkusen welcome Hertha Berlin this weekend.

They’ll be buzzing with confidence after reaching the German Cup semi-finals for the first time in nine years with an extra-time win over Werder Bremen. Could the prolonged battle help a Hertha side without a win in six games? Not if Bailey continues to shine.
