When Bayer Leverkusen hosts Union Berlin at the BayArena on Sunday afternoon, the league’s top team will be looking to maintain their perfect home record.
During their previous game, Bayer Leverkusen defeated TSG Hoffenheim 3-2 on the road. In the encounter versus TSG Hoffenheim, Alex Grimaldo scored a pair of goals for his team. Thursday’s 1-0 victory over Qarabag FK in Azerbaijan gave Leverkusen their 11th straight win across all competitions and guaranteed them a spot in the Europa League’s round of 16 as the eventual winners of Group H. In fact, Xabi Alonso’s team will skip the February round of Europe’s second competition, which means they can concentrate entirely on retaining their Bundesliga leadership and moving forward in the DFB-Pokal in the upcoming months. The only thing that might worry Alonso is that his squad has been giving up more goals lately, they have only managed a single clean sheet over the previous 6 matches; but, if they can keep up their strong offensive, this shouldn’t slow them down for very long.
Considering their terrible losing streak in the German Bundesliga, the capital team is experiencing an entire campaign to forget. In their most recent game on November 4th, Union Berlin lost 3-0 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt. The visitors drew away from Napoli within the Champions League on Wednesday, ending their 12-match winless stretch in all competitions, but they will enter this game in the relegation spots. Union Berlin’s prospects of continuing in European competition are maintained, even if their first Champions League debut is now eliminated due to a tie. Fischer, meanwhile, will be more worried with his team’s unusually low league standing given their incredible recent success. After losing to Eintracht Frankfurt away for the eighth time in a row last weekend, they are now among the bottom three in the Bundesliga.
