Cologne vs Bayer Leverkusen preview, betting tips and prediction: When will the home side's season kick into gear?

Under 2.5 goals @ 11/10 with William Hill

Last week, we predicted that Julian Brandt would score anytime in Bayer Leverkusen’s game against Borussia Monchengladbach. We were two hundred percent correct. The young gun came off the bench to net a stoppage-time victory goal for Leverkusen to wrap up a 2-0 win over Gladbach and keep their Champions League hopes and dreams on course. We were surprised to see a player like Brandt go relatively under the radar when it came to transfer speculation in the recent window. He’s been overshadowed by Leon Bailey. Join the club.

BETFAIR HAVE YOU COVERED

Bailey is the most dangerous wide man in the Bundesliga this season. The scorer of nine goals and creator of a further five for his teammates, Bailey is an immense prospect and probably won’t be at Leverkusen beyond the summer. For the time being, he will help them achieve their objective and has flourished against their opponents this weekend, Cologne. Bailey found the back of the net in a victory for Leverkusen earlier in the campaign. Then Cologne looked doomed. While they’re still anchored to the bottom of the Bundesliga, they have shown fight in the second term. However, one win in their last seven games is, simply put, relegation form. With only eight games left, Cologne have to start stringing results together. This weekend would be a good time to start.
