This is a match that involves a lot of tradition on the Bundesliga, between Schalke 04 and Leverkusen
Schalke 04 started their league campaign very well this season, with consecutive wins and a position on the top spots of the league table.
However, on the last 2 rounds, the team has hit a brick wall and they suffered 2 losses, at home against Bayern and away at Hoffenheim.
But I don’t believe these are “bad” losses. They lost against two of the best teams in the Bundesliga, which is perfectly understandable.
Still, they are still on a good position. Schalke sits in 7th place with 9 points gained.
Playing at home, they have 2 wins – against Stuttgart and Leipzig- and 1 loss, against Bayern München.

Schalke vs Leverkusen – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Leverkusen, on the other hand, didn’t manage to get a good start in the Bundesliga.
In reality, their bad form has started last season, when they even played in the Champions League but fought until the end not to get relegated from the Bundesliga.
This season, they come into this match after a win over Hamburger and they sit in 10th place with 7 points gained. Looking at the odds, I thought backing Schalke had a lot of value here.
The team is always very strong at home. Sure, they might have lost to Bayern, but that’s very common in the Bundesliga.
However, Leverkusen hasn’t been showing such good football to deserve so much balance on the odds, especially playing at such a tough stadium.
Betting on Schalke 04, with the protection of the draw, also has value.
