Bayer Levekusen Odds
Leverkusen holds the league record for most runners-up positions with no championship wins.
If that doesn’t tell you everything about their predicted table position, nothing will. That said, their table positioning is not as stable as it once used to be. Following the catastrophic drop to 12 in 2016/17, they managed to regroup and climb back up into the Top 6 almost immediately.
That said, they seem to be switching between Champions League and Europa League qualifications every year. The 2019/20 season ended with a 4th placement, so they’ll have to balance their domestic efforts with an international campaign.
The bookies completely agree with this assessment. At odds of 2.00, whether Leverkusen will end up 4th or 5th is a coin toss at this point. While moving up the ladder is infamously difficult in the German Bundesliga, it’s especially true for Leverkusen. The Top 3 teams are firmly established.
Bayer Levekusen Key Players
Peter Bosz will remain the head manager for another season, which means precious little has changed since Leverkusen’s 2019/20 campaign.
We’ll start with the few important transfers, though: Kai Havertz, the wunderkind midfielder, was transferred to Chelsea in one of the biggest deals of the season. Centre forward Kevin Volland also left for Monaco, only to be replaced by Roma’s Patrik Schick.
This should give the squad some more front-loaded attacking power, which seems to be the biggest thing they needed to catch up to higher-ranked clubs. Moussa Diaby will remain a dangerous presence on the left wing, though it is a position he has to share with another highly-valued asset: Leon Bailey.
Lastly, we should also point out the duo of backs responsible for Bayer’s respectably low concession rate. Edmond Tapsoba and Jonathan Tah are important parts of the squad’s formation despite their young age.
Bayer Levekusen Rivalry
Any match between clubs from North Rhine-Westphalia is special. You can count on better atmosphere and more passion in matches against Koln, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Fortuna Düsseldorf. Main local rival is Koln. As they are well known as family friendly club, you will hardly see frantic atmosphere on the terraces, but they will have the support they need.
Bayer Levekusen History
Bayer is specific club in Germany as it is the only one not owned by fans. In Germany companies can’t buy naming rights, and bayer is the only exception as they have established the club in 1904. when some of their employees asked the company to do that.
