Bayer Leverkusen vs Dusseldorf - 17/02/2019 Preview

Bayer Leverkusen will face Dusseldorf at BayArena at German Bundesliga 22nd Round. Bayer Leverkusen against Dusseldorf is the match with big interest after their previous matches at German Bundesliga. Review our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen is a great team with young and talented players. Now they stand at 6th position with 33 points and 5 points difference with 4th position. Very young and talented team with big plans in the future and big potential. However, one of the young talents left to Monaco on Loan to gain more experience and help Monaco to get up. In last home match of Bundesliga, Leverkusen surprisingly won against Bayern Munich by scoring 3 goals.

All main squad players are fit and ready to play for the next opponent, as they need to be ready to fight for going further in the table. After this season some of the talents could leave the club to bigger ones, as there are lots of rumors about Bailey, Volland, and Henricks.

This season club shows great abilities at counter attacks, attacking set pieces and shooting from direct free kicks. Very likely that they will play possessional football with short passes and attack down the right, finally, control the game.  However, the team is really weak at avoiding fouling in dangerous areas and defending against skillful players.

 

Dusseldorf

Dusseldorf plays very interestingly, however, not stable. They can win three matches and then lose against outsiders. This season, they won only 2 matches on the road and lost 4 times, which is not very bad. Most likely this season they are not threatened by a departure to Bundesliga 2 and not going for a position in the top of the Bundesliga, but the team can fight to be above 10th place.

Main Fortuna team leaders are fit and ready to play against opponents. This year they have troubles at defending against skillful players, avoiding fouling in dangerous areas and especially keeping possession of the ball. They are great at creating long shot opportunities and protecting the lead. Very likely that Fortuna Dusseldorf will play width, take long shots play aggressively and in their own half.

 

H2H

In the last 5 matches between these teams, Leverkusen Bayer was luckier and won all the games. At the beginning of this season, Leverkusen won at the road game with a 2:1 result. Volland scored double and they conceded a goal by penalty in last additional minute.
