A colossal battle between two top Bundesliga sides

Bayer Leverkusen have already been crowned the 2023-24 Bundesliga champions. But the season isn’t over. With four more league games to go, they can reach new heights by becoming the first side to remain unbeaten in the whole German first-tier season. A 90+7′ minute goal by Josip Stanisic last game against Borussia Dortmund kept the dream alive.

VfB Stuttgart are currently third in the standings. They are fighting for a return to UEFA Champions League competition by trying their best to stay in the top four. With RB Leipzig and Dortmund lurking on their heels, Sebastian Hoeneß’s men will want to dust themselves off quickly from a last league game defeat to SV Werder Bremen. Bremen had ended 11 games of unbeaten run of Die Schwaben.

Kick-Off:

Saturday, 27 April 2024 at 5:30 PM UK (10:00 PM IST)

Location: BayArena

Form

Leverkusen (in all competitions): D-D-W-W-W

Stuttgart (in all competitions): L-W-W-D-W

Players to Watch

Florian Wirtz (Leverkusen)

At just 20 if a player is rocking one of the top five European leagues, he has to be special. Florian Wirtz has featured in each of the 30 league games for his side. In those outings, Wirtz has recorded 11 goals and 11 assists.

Serhou Guirassy (Stuttgart)

If Harry Kane hadn’t finally left Tottenham Hotspur to join Bayern Munich last summer, Serhou Guirassy would have led the scoring charts in the Bundesliga this season. Out of the 68 goals scored by Stuttgart so far this league campaign, 25 of those were scored by Guirassy. That is 36 per cent of the total goals his side has scored in the German league.

Match Facts

  • The reverse fixture ended 1-1 at the MHPArena
  • Leverkusen have conceded 16 fewer goals in the league so far than their upcoming opponents
  • Their last meeting had produced 5 goals in total in the DFB Pokal where Xabi Alonso’s men came out 3-2 on top

Match Prediction for Leverkusen vs Stuttgart

Both sides have already met twice this season. Once in the league that saw a 1-1 result and later in DFB Pokal that saw Leverkusen win 3-2. The hosts are just four games away from the historic feat of becoming the first Bundesliga side to remain unbeaten in a season. Very few chances of them slipping up now.

Prediction: Leverkusen 2-1 Stuttgart
