Bayer Leverkusen is disappointing in Bundesliga this season. Perhaps Champions League is taking its toll, but it was worth it - Bayer qualified for the knockout phase of the best European club competition. However, their ambitions in Bundesliga haven't changed - they want to finish in the top four teams in the league, so they can represent Germany in Champions League in the forthcoming season too. Currently, it seems they will fail to accomplish that, since they are trailing by eight points behind the fourth placed Eintracht Frankfurt. On the other hand, they recorded three victories in three friendly matches during the winter break, so it seems their form is on the rise.


Hertha is very happy with their current position on the table. However, they recorded two defeats in the league recently, so their form is not that great at the moment. If they defeat Leverkusen they will practically eliminate one of the clubs that fight for Champions League spot, so they'll have a great motive in the forthcoming match.


Hertha is performing better in this Bundesliga season, but tradition tells us that Bayer Leverkusen will win this match. It is hard to predict the outcome, but both teams should score at least one goal here.
