Leverkusen eager to extend the perfect start to their Bundesliga season

<div><h2>Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/de/bundesliga/bayer-04-leverkusen-vs-tsg-1899-hoffenheim-3840879/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><strong>Saturday, August 31, BayArena (Leverkusen)</strong></a></p><p>As expected and tipped last week, Leverkusen are flying high under their manager Peter Bosz. They are scoring goals for fun, they are superb going forward and we expect them to fight for the Champions League spots and finish in top 4 this season. They won their 1st two matches of the season against newly promoted Paderborn and against Dusseldorf scoring 6 goals in the process. Since Peter Bosz joined the team, Leverkusen won 13 of their 19 Bundesliga matches scoring 49 goals in the process. On the other side, Hoffenheim lost their season opener to Eintracht Frankfurt but they immediately bounced back winning home 3-2 against Werder Bremen but they were very lucky as Werder failed to convert some huge scoring opportunities but also being red carded in the 2nd half of the match.</p><h2>Team News:</h2><p>If it’s not Kai Havertz it’s Leon Bailey, if it’s not Bailey it’s Karim Bellarabi or Kevin Volland. Let’s add Kerem Demirbay whom they signed from Hoffenheim for €32m. They possess one of the best attacking lines not only in the German top-flight league but also in Europe. They could also be title contenders this season after managing to keep their star youngster Kai Havertz with them but let’s not forget they will also play in the Champions League group stages and that might affect their Bundesliga season. Hoffenheim lost their brain in the summer, the one and only Julian Nagelsmann who signed with RB Leipzig but they also lost 3 of their most important players, Joelinton who already score in the Premier League for Newcastle winning them the match with Tottenham, Kerem Demirbay who left to their weekend opponents Leverkusen and rock-solid defender Nico Schulz who signed with Dortmund.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=0d6ed5cd-99a2-41c2-abf3-f12f9f951422&amp;f=2" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d580afa408d53fc8c579955/original-bet-365-early-payout" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>We should see the best starting lineup from both teams, that means we are in for an exciting match full of goals. Leverkusen brilliant home record since Peter Bosz took over and their huge attacking firepower should will be the key to this match. But Levekusen still have to improve at the back the back because they are always struggling to keep clean sheets conceding goals in most of their matches. Despite losing many important players during summer, Hoffenheim still have Ishak Belfodil or Chistoph Baumgartner 2 great attacking players who can score against Leverkusen. Unfortunately, they will still be without Andrej Kramaric, another impressive striker who scored many goals last season.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Leverkusen to win and both teams to score at 2.5 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
