The high-flying Bayer Leverkusen play their final Bundesliga match before the international break on Sunday, as they play Union Berlin at BayArena. The visitors will be looking for a big performance after losing each of their last eight.
It has been a stunning start to the Bundesliga season for Bayer Leverkusen, as they continue to set the pace in the German top-flight this term. They come into this fixture with a two-point advantage over Bayern Munich at the top of the standings, while they are one of just two sides in the competition that are yet to suffer a defeat this term.
Leverkusen have picked up victories in each of their previous five matches, and they are the second-highest scorers in the German division. They are unbeaten in ten Bundesliga fixtures this term, which is their longest unbeaten sequence in the competition since going 13 without defeat between June and December 2020. It is the first time since April 2016 that Leverkusen have won six league matches on the bounce.
The pressure continues to mount on Union Berlin at this stage of the season, as they continue to fight at the wrong end of the standings. They come into this fixture sitting in the relegation playoff spot, and they are level on points with Mainz in the bottom two.
Union have suffered defeats in each of their last eight matches in the league, which is their longest ever losing sequence in the top-flight. The last team to endure a longer losing run was Furth in 2021-22. The eight defeats that they have suffered this term is already as many losses as Union suffered all last season.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Union Berlin Head to Head
Leverkusen boast an impressive record in this fixture, as they have suffered just one competitive defeat in eleven fixtures against Union Berlin. Their only loss was suffered in January 2021. However, Leverkusen have won just one of the previous six league meetings between the sides.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Union Berlin Prediction
Leverkusen’s excellent start to the Bundesliga season doesn’t show any signs of stopping at present, and they should take full advantage of Union’s issues this weekend. Therefore, we will be siding with the hosts picking up a comfortable success at BayArena.
