Bayer Leverkusen - Köln betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 17:30 on 17/04/2021 played @ BayArena

The odds are definitely leaning in the hosts’ favour, but this match is far from a done deal. Judging by odds alone, Köln may yet be able to walk away with a draw or even a surprise victory – though it’s still a longshot.

Though it may not be particularly attractive to punters, this match is at least easy to predict. Anything but a Home Win is probably wishful thinking for The Billy Goats, whose victory has been priced at a hefty 6.00.

The last Bundesliga match Bayer Leverkusen participated in was little more than one long stalemate. It seems that whatever advantage most predictions gave them against Hoffenheim were negated by the fact they played as visitors. Ultimately, they will be happy ot have secured a 0:0 draw.

Koln’s latest home game against Mainz 05 was a bit uneventful, ending in a narrow 2:3 defeat. While the loss is not great, we should remember that Koln were considered underdogs going in – if only by a thin margin.

The Billy Goats may need to work on their defence if they want to get anywhere. In the 3 most recent matches they played, they conceded more than 5 times in total, which is not a good record to have.

The home team are number 6th in the standings, so the road to a Europa League qualification seems set. That said, they have a good shot at earning 3 points on Saturday, so a better placement is still on the table.

The season is already in its latter stages, which is increasingly a problem for The Billy Goats They’re still in the relegation zone and the upcoming showdown is not exactly favourable to earn the 3 points they’ll need.

Bayer Leverkusen already have a victory over Köln on their record. It happened earlier in this running season of the Bundesliga, marking them as the clear favourites for the upcoming showdown.

Before going for any betting predictions, we need to make note of the overall high number of prior injuries. Both sides have been hit: Julian Baumgartlinger, Exequiel Palacios, Santiago Arias, Timothy Fosu-Mensah for the hosts, and Kingsley Ehizibue, Sebastiaan Bornauw, Jan Thielmann for the visitors. Needless to say, this may impact the teams’ performance.

Over 2.5 Goals is easily the safest bet when it comes to this matchup. The best part is that it also maintains a decent betting value, especially if you use the 1.70 odds offered at Betway.
