<div><h2>Dusseldorf vs Leverkusen</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/de/bundesliga/fortuna-dusseldorf-vs-bayer-04-leverkusen-3840818/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow"><strong>Saturday, August 25, at Merkur Spiel-Arena (Düsseldorf)</strong></a></p><p>The 2 teams kicked-off their Bundesliga 2019/20 campaign with 2 convincing wins. Dusseldorf did well to beat Werder Bremen 3-1 on the road while Leverkusen managed to beat newly promoted team Paderborn 3-2 on their turf. Dusseldorf’s and Manchester City-owned goalkeeper Zack Steffen was the man of the match against Werder Bremen showing some amazing reflexes, making 10 brilliant saves and helping his new team earning 3 points on his debut. The 2 teams will face each other on Saturday in what is expected to be a highly entertaining match and a high-scoring affair. Leverkusen finished 4<sup>th</sup> last year earning a Champions League group stage position.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Leverkusen did well to keep Kai Havertz who became the 2<sup>nd</sup> youngest players to score 25 top-flight league goals helping his side to win 3-2 on matchday 1 against Paderborn. The young and talented striker has now scored in 6 consecutive Bundesliga matches and it looks like he won’t stop here. They were active this summer signing Kerem Demirbay and Nadiem Amiri from Hoffenheim, Moussa Diaby from Paris Saint-Germain and Daley Sinkgraven from Ajax spending €61m. They also have Leon Bailey one of the fastest players in the German top-flight league who score their 1<sup>st</sup> goal of the season for the 2<sup>nd</sup> year in a row. Fortuna won in Bremen for the first time in 16 attempts and are expected to put on another great fight at home against Leverkusen.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>We expect goals. Both teams struggle to keep clean sheet plus we are talking about the start of the season and we are talking about the German Bundesliga, one of, if not the most entertaining leagues in Europe in term of goals. Leverkusen shouldn’t underestimate their opponent because they are very tough to beat on their turf. The visitors have a brilliant attacking firepower and they can easily score 3 goals on their own, but we also expect Dusseldorf to enter this match highly motivated after their 1<sup>st</sup> round result and put on a great fight. Kai Havertz and Leon Bailey are priced at 2.25 and 2.88 to be anytime goalscorers. Both represent great value and we will play them but our top prediction for this match is coming from the goals market.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the math: Over 3 goals AH (Asian Handicap) at 1.76 with Pinnacle</strong></em></a></p></div>
