⚽Who are the probable teams in this match?
Football Prediction of the Day Leverkusen vs Stuttgart
I do not think that this season the two teams can be compared, Leverkusen evolving this season in the Champions League, while Stuttgart is still fighting for promotion to the Bundesliga, after relegating at the end of the previous season.
And Stuttgart changed his lot a lot, being a completely different team from the previous season, thus Bayer being a definite favorite when qualifying further, a qualification that I think he will get in the first 90 minutes, in a match in which he score at least 2 goals.
Leverkusen has a value balanced lot, with the coach having 22 players for this match, thus being able to line up a first 11 to bring victory in this match, Leverkusen winning the last match on his own field, 3: 0, with Dusseldorf.
Prediction Today: 1 and over 1.5 goals
