Bayer Leverkusen will welcome Union Berlin to BayArena for a matchday 18 fixture in Germany Bundesliga. The last meeting on 14th August 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Bayer Leverkusen has won 4 matches, and Union Berlin triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 3.00 goals, while both teams score 71% of the time.

Bayer Leverkusen's latest fixture against Freiburg ended in an away 2-1 loss. Bayer Leverkusen dominated the possession of the ball but didn't take advantage of it. Bayer Leverkusen set the tone early and scored just before the break.

Union Berlin's previous game in the competition versus Bochum ended in an away 1-0 win. Although Eisern Union countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Union Berlin played better before halftime and scored in the 16th minute.

So far, Bayer Leverkusen plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.80 points per away game on average compared to 1.56 points at home. Although Bayer Leverkusen is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.

Union Berlin has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Union Berlin wins 1.11 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Union Berlin kept a clean sheet in just 11% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Bayer Leverkusen is currently unbeaten at home in four games. Since the start of the season, they have just three home defeats.

Die Eisernen is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against Bayer Leverkusen.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Bayer Leverkusen wins on average 1.56 points per home game, compared to 1.11 points per away game for Union Berlin. My prediction is Bayer Leverkusen to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.57 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 63% of Bayer Leverkusen's home and Union Berlin's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Bayer Leverkusen has scored in 89% of home games. Union Berlin is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
