The Bayer Leverkusen vs Schalke match will be played on Friday, April 28, at the Bay Arena, Leverkusen. Bayer Leverkusen is currently 12th on the table with 36 points, while Schalke is 11th on the table with 38 points at the moment.


  • Bayer Leverkusen recorded only one victory in their last 11 games in all competitions. That win came against last placed Darmstadt. This is the worst run in their recent history.
  • Schalke isn't much better either - they recorded 2 victories in their last 8 games. However, one of those victories wasn't enough for them to qualify for Europa League semifinal - they defeated Ajax at home by 3-2.


In their previous 10 meetings, Bayer Leverkusen recorded 5 victories, Schalke won 3 games, while 2 matches ended in a draw. In 6 out of those 10 games, at least one team didn't score.


Bayer Leverkusen can't wait for an end of the nightmare season. They ultimately failed their expectations, and we will probably see a turbulent summer in Leverkusen. However, after this series of terrible results, the very survival in the league is questionable. Leverkusen is currently only 4 points in front of Augsburg, which is on the position that leads to playoff games against the 3rd best team from Bundesliga 2. With 4 games to go, Bayer probably needs 6 points to secure their place in Bundesliga.

Schalke gave everything in their Europa League clash against Ajax but failed to eliminate the famous Dutch club. They are 6 points ahead of Augsburg, and if they lose the upcoming game against Leverkusen, they can also be endangered. However, they still hope they will be in the top 6 - that's plausible since Freiburg is only 6 points ahead of them.

Latest matches: FC Schalke 04

08.04.2017 Bund FC Schalke 04 VfL Wolfsburg 4:1 W


Both teams need a victory, but both teams are in a terrible form. It is hard to predict the outcome of the upcoming game, but we will be surprised if we see over 2.5 goals in their match.
