Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen Odds and Spreads


Leverkusen Streak at 47 and Counting.

When a team like Bayer Leverkusen appears, it doesn’t matter which team you usually root for, you just need to relax, sit back and enjoy the show. As mentioned before, the Black and Reds reached 47 games without losing after defeating AS Roma 2-0 in the first leg of the UEL semifinals.


Prior to that, they overcame a two-goal deficit and managed to draw 2-2 against Stuttgart in the Bundesliga. Robert Andrich scored the equalizer in the 96th minute. The Black and Reds have become experts in scoring during stoppage time.

Regarding the Bundesliga, the Black and Reds are 12-3-0 when playing on the road. That’s scary good. Most recently, they drew 1-1 against Borussia Dortmund with a goal in the 97th minute. I told you, they’ve become experts in scoring late!

Believe it or not, no player from Bayer Leverkusen is among the league’s top scorers. However, not depending on a specific player has been one of the keys for the Back and Reds success. Seven players have scored at least five goals with Victor Boniface leading the way with 11.

In the end, regardless of who gets to play due to the second leg of the UEL semifinals that is scheduled for Thursday, Bayer Leverkusen at +126 is a great deal to include in your soccer picks.

Is Frankfurt a Real Threat?

The short answer is no, but I won’t leave you with just the short answer. The Eagles are 36 points behind Bayer Leverkusen. However, they must win to secure a spot in the next edition of the UEFA Conference League.

Most recently, they put up a good fight against Bayern Munich but ended up losing 2-1. The thing is that they’ve been considerably better when playing at home, where they’ve lost only one of 15 matches. Most recently, they defeated Augsburg 3-1.

There’s also the duo of Omar Marmoush and Ansgar Knauff, who have scored 11 and seven goals, respectively. And let’s not forget about Hugo Ekitike, who’s on loan from PSG and trying to get all the attention through good performances. The defense also deserves some credit because the Eagles didn’t concede more than one goal in any of their last four home games.

Finally, keep in mind that unlike Bayer Leverkusen, Frankfurt didn’t play midweek. That’s relevant because the Eagles will also have the physical advantage. And they’ve had more time to prepare, tactically and mentally. Bottom line, they’ll put up a good fight, enough for me to recommend you take the draw.
