The Leipzig vs. Bayer Leverkusen match will be played on Red Bull Arena, Leipzig. Leipzig is currently 5th on the table with 46 points, while Bayer Leverkusen is 6th on the table with 45 points at the moment. This is the last match of Bundesliga round 29. This game can decide which team will be out of the race for position number four.


  • Leipzig is in a series of three victories in all competitions. They are also undefeated in their last seven games.
  • Bayer Leverkusen was defeated only once in their last five matches. Last weekend, they recorded only a draw at home against Augsburg.


These teams met only three times. Last season, Leipzig won both games, while in the first match this season the result was 2:2.


Leipzig expected a better season than last year, but they struggled against the teams which are fighting against relegation. They defeated Bayern Munich two week ago though, and they are still in Europa League - Leipzig defeated Marseille by 1:0 in the first quarterfinal leg. However, they really want to qualify for Champions League next season and to fulfill that goal they will have to beat Bayer Leverkusen, which is their biggest rival for the position number four. Eintracht Frankfurt is currently fourth, but nobody expects them on that position in the end of the season.

Bayer Leverkusen had a terrible start of the season, they even fought against relegation in the beginning, but they managed to find their form and to join the fight for the European competitions. If they surprise Leipzig and win three points from this match, they would make a giant leap in the fight for the position number four.

This is a derby match and everything is possible. However, we believe that Leipzig will win in the upcoming game.
