What’s up with Bayer Leverkusen? This question may perhaps be asked by one or the other, who has followed the preparation of the Werkself for the new season. Despite only medium European opponents Bayer could win any of the games against the other teams from Europe.
Aachen vs Leverkusen Football Betting Tips
Worries about Leverkusen are limited, as they believe they know the reasons for these weak results, which are mainly due to the fact that many potential regular players did not start preparing until later.
On Saturday Leverkusen must play at the Tivoli and there at Alemannia Aachen in the first round of the DFB Cup. The Alemanni were already booming after the first matchday and the mood did not improve after the second matchday. But that only applies to the mood among some chaotic fans, which of course can be transferred to the team. That’s not the only reason why the forecast between Aachen and Leverkusen should be clear.
Aachen – Statistics & Current Form
On Saturday it will be exactly 2,548 days, after which there will be another match in the DFB Pokal at the Tivoli in Aachen. Just under seven years ago, Alemannia Aachen lost their last cup match at home to Gladbach 0: 2. In the memory of 2003/2004, however, in which Aachen reached the cup final in Berlin as second division and threw on the way there, among others, the Bundesliga 1860 Munich, Bayern Munich and Gladbach from the competition.
In the final Aachen then had against Bremen 2: 3 only just missing. His glorious time has been over for Aachen for some time now. After the rise in the Bundesliga for the 2006/2007 season, it took only six years before the Alemannia found again in the Regionalliga, where she is still represented.
The last season closed Aachen on a supposedly good fifth place, but the gap was already in fourth place already seven points. This was due to four defeats in the last four matchdays. With a bankruptcy, Aachen started the new season.
“Our profession is unfortunately the only profession where people with three grams of brain think they can afford to judge because they paid ten euros for a ticket. For such personal hostility I have no understanding. ” – Aachen coach Fuat Kilic on the insults in social media
Only in the home game last weekend Aachen could end this negative series, but came in the home game against the second team of Dusseldorf also not over a 1-1 addition. Alemannia’s plan to play at the top of the league this season soon gave it a damper.
Already after the defeat on the first match day, some “fans” went to the barricades, which insulted the result, the style of play, the players themselves and also coach Fuat Kilic in the social media, preferably anonymous. Kilic responded before the game against Dusseldorf with an angry speech and then made clear in an open letter that he meant with his clear words not the core of the fans, but only those who have crossed the line.
But because in the game against Duesseldorf despite superiority did not succeed and the opponent scored just before the end with a Sunday shot the balance, there are in the camp of the followers of the Alemanni already some who write off the rise after two matchdays. So it seems hard times for Kilic, which appeals to look forward and enjoy the highlight against Leverkusen before sold-out house.
The Alemannia, which can play in the best position on Saturday, has to improve, especially in the offensive area. The only two goals this season have been achieved by defensive players. In the match between Aachen and Leverkusen the betting odds for a tip on home win are beyond the mark of 20.00.

➢ Cymer; Fiedler, Heinze, Hackenberg, Wallenborn; Puetz, Salata; Schmitt, Batarilo-Cerdic, Garnier; Noel

Leverkusen – Statistics & Current Form
“I was hoping for a bit that we might be solved against them,” said Simon Rolfes after the draw for the first round of the DFB Cup. For today’s sports director of Bayer Leverkusen Alemannia Aachen was the springboard in professional football, which he should later change to Leverkusen. Accordingly, Rolfes is pleased about the return to the old workplace.
Not only not pleased, but bitterly disappointed Rolfes, however, must be about the preparation of his team. Of the eight friendly matches Leverkusen has lost five and won only against the regional league team from Wuppertal. With Fortuna Sittard, KAS Eupen, Watford, Eibar, Heracles Almelo and Vitesse Arnhem, the Werkself also had not the most notable teams to the opponent. There was the last weekend, when Leverkusen officially opened the season.
Against Champions League participants Valencia Leverkusen defeated at home with 1: 2 and weakened himself after 21 minutes by a dismissal for Aleksandar Dragovic himself. Kai Havertz scored the own goal from the penalty spot. Just like team-mate Leon Bailey, Havertz is still associated with Bayern again and again. Managing director Rudi Völler wants at least Havertz no stones in the way.
“The results have won me. We have to show a different face, play with more passion and give our best over 90 minutes together. “- Leverkusen striker Kevin Volland on the weak preparation
So far, Leverkusen was able to hold his team as far as possible and lost with Julian Brandt (Dortmund) and Dominik Kohr (Frankfurt) only two well-known players to the competition. While the departure Brandts certainly weighs heavily, Kohr came in the second half already no longer on a lot of time. On the other hand, Bayer have strengthened with Kerem Demirbay and Nadiem Amiri (both Hoffenheim), Moussa Diaby (PSG) and Daley Sinkgraven (Ajax Amsterdam).
So it is clear: Leverkusen has a competitive team this season. In the past, Bayer has always had bad preparations, which have not kept the team from later good performances.
This summer was mainly the failure of various defensive players, whether by injury (Sven Bender, Julian Baumgartlinger, Mitchell Weiser), training backlog (Sinkgraven) or prolonged leave after the U21 European Championship (Jonathan Tah), reason that certain automatisms still not grasp and especially the fast switching game does not seem to be internalized yet.
With a win at Tivoli, the Werkself, with Saturday’s Lars Bender, Mitchell Weiser and Joel Pohjanoalo failing, can make the disappointing preparation a little forgotten. The fact is: In the match of Aachen against Leverkusen, the odds for a tip on the Werkself are so low that they are not worthwhile.
Expected formation of Leverkusen:
➢ Hradecky; Jedvaj, Bender, Tah; Baumgartlinger, Aranguiz, Bellarabi, Havertz, Demirbay, Wendell; Volland
Last matches from Leverkusen:
