Bayer Leverkusen vs VfB Stuttgart

, KO: 17:30 Apr 27, 2024, BayArena
VfB Stuttgart

Bayer Leverkusen continue their victory lap as they welcome VfB Stuttgart to BayArena for a Bundesliga fixture on Saturday. Stuttgart have shown some good form lately but the home of the newly crowned champions might be a bridge too far.

Fresh from being crowned Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen are on a victory tour in their remaining fixtures. Despite wrapping up the title with games to spare, they do not appear to be slacking off, with an unbeaten record the target in the final weeks of the season.

Bayer Leverkusen showed that motivation last time out as they came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at Borussia Dortmund. They appear to be headed for their first defeat after conceding with nine minutes left to play but Josip Stanisic struck the equaliser deep into injury time.

Having been on the road last time out, Bayer Leverkusen are returning to BayArena where they often do their best work. Xabi Alonso’s men have won their last nine matches across all competitions at BayArena and triumphed 5-0 over Werder Bremen in their previous home fixture.

Stuttgart are coming off a defeat as they suffered a 2-1 defeat at Werder Bremen in their previous Bundesliga fixture. They fell two goals down before Deniz Undav netted a consolation midway through the second half.

That was the first defeat in 10 matches for Stuttgart, who have been in good form lately. Sebastian Hoeness’ men are now three points off second placed Bayern Munich but remain third on the standings, four points above RB Leipzig.

Stuttgart tend to do well on their travels, with the defeat at Werder Bremen tending a run of five straight away wins. However, they tend to struggle against the top side having lost 5-1 at RB Leipzig and then suffered a 3-0 defeat at Bayern Munich.
