Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig 18/11/2017
This promises to be a thrilling encounter with both teams loving to attack. Leverkusen have ditched a shaky start to ride on a six-game undefeated streak, scoring 14 goals in the process.
Defensive midfielder Sven Bender is the only notable absence in coach Heiko Herrlich’s squad selection.
RB Leipzig are back to where they finished last season, second that is, and will fancy their chances here.
The Champions League entrants have three wins and three losses on the road this term and will welcome back Willi Orban to the heart of their defence following suspension. Pacy forward Jean-Kevin Augustin is expected to recover from a thigh complaint that kept him out of the team’s 2-1 home win over Hannover before the international break.
The key man to decide the destiny of the game will be Leverkusen’s playmaker Kevin Volland. He has six goals to his name this season, as many as in the entire last campaign.
