Bayer Leverkusen have started the season in excellent form, and they will be looking to continue their winning sequence in the Bundesliga on Saturday when they face an interesting challenge against Hoffenheim in the German top-flight.
Few sides in Europe have captured the imagination as much as Bayer Leverkusen over the opening months. Xabi Alonso’s side continue to lead the Bundesliga after nine round of matches, as they have won eight times already this term. Their only dropped points came in the form of a draw against Bayern Munich last month.
Leverkusen have responded to that minor setback in excellent style after winning each of their previous five to extend their advantage at the top of the standings to two points. The German giants once again rose to the occasion last weekend, as they landed a hard-fought 2-1 home success against Freiburg. Their goals in that success were netted by Florian Wirtz and Jonas Hofmann.
Hoffenheim look set to present an interesting challenge for Leverkusen this weekend, as they have won six of their opening nine matches this term to sit sixth in the standings. A home victory this weekend could see the German side rise into the Champions League spots in the Bundesliga.
However, Hoffenheim come into this fixture after losing two of their previous four. But, they were able to get back on track with an impressive showing last weekend, as they landed maximum points on the road against Stuttgart. Wout Weghorst was among the scorers in that 3-2 success, with the crucial winning goal being netted by Robert Skov with just under 25 minutes remaining on the clock.
Hoffenheim vs Bayer Leverkusen Head to Head
Each of the previous three clashes between these sides has been won by the team playing away from home.

Meanwhile, Hoffenheim has won just once in their previous four home matches against Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.
