Bundesliga. Round 32
Stadium: BayArena (Leverkusen)
Two matches are scheduled for Monday in the Bundesliga, one of which is the match between Bayer and Eintracht. On the one hand, the Eagles from Frankfurt had plenty of time to bounce back from their first match against West Ham. On the other hand, we doubt that the upcoming game is of any importance for Frankfurt, given that the club has the return game against the Londoners ahead, with the Europa League final and a very possible pass to the Champions League group stage at stake.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Bayer 04 Leverkusen
Bayer played four games in Bundesliga in April, winning two of them, one draw with Bochum and a 0-1 loss to Leipzig. Last round, Bayer defeated Greuther Fürth 4-1 on the road, but it is difficult to compare the Bavarians and the club from Frankfurt, a semifinalist in the Europa League. Before Monday's pool, Bayer is third in the Bundesliga standings, just one point ahead of Leipzig, knocked out of the top four by Freiburg. It is obvious that Bayer needs points in the upcoming game. The Company's Eleven is as motivated as it comes. The home statistics are not perfect, only eight wins in 15 games and three victories in the last five meetings, with a goal difference of 35-22.
After the return match against Barcelona, Eintracht lost in Berlin to Union 2-0 and drew with Hoffenheim. Five days after the tie, Eintracht defeated a powerful West Ham 2-1 on the road and is now the odds-on favorite in the Europa League semifinals. Now that it is Eintracht that is the favorite of the semifinal pair, it is unlikely the Eagles will focus on the Bundesliga match, which is nothing against a chance to play in the final of the Europa League. Recall that victory in the second most important European competition means a direct ticket to the group stage of the Champions League. Eintracht's away statistics are the sixth in the division, with six wins in 15 games, five losses, and 23-23 goal difference.
Bayer and Eintracht have faced off 75 times, with 35 matches won by the Company's Eleven, 13 draws, and 27 victories for Eintracht. The goal difference is 137-106 in favor of Leverkusen. The teams have played each other in two tournaments; besides Bundesliga, there's the German Cup, where there have been two face-offs. In Bundesliga, the teams have played 73 games against each other, 33 won by Bayer, 13 draws, and 27 wins for the Frankfurt Eagles. The teams played 37 matches on Bayer's field, 22 of which, or 59% were won by Leverkusen with nine draws and six wins by Eintracht. The first-round match between the rivals ended in a 5-2 victory for the Eagles. And in general, TO (2.5) in our confrontation was broken in nine fixtures.
Injuries and suspensions

Expert Betting Tips
On the one hand, the teams are pretty high-scoring against each other. On the other hand, the Eagles certainly do not need any extra productivity right now. If the Eagles want to avoid losing in Leverkusen, they will have to shut down as much as possible. In return, Bayer needs a win on Monday in the first place, not a blowout. A win by any score will keep Leverkusen in the top 4, which is the most important thing, especially considering that Leipzig, like Eintracht, is fighting for the Europa League final. The first bet we offer is a combined W1+TU (4.5) for 1.94 at the line of 1xbet.
As the second bet, we will offer the minus handicap on the favorite. We believe that Bayer has good chance to defeat their opponent. H1 (-2) for 2.375 at Bet365.
Eintracht and Bayer regularly exchange goals in their personal matchups. Specifically, both teams scored in four head-to-head encounters. It will hardly surprise anyone if the upcoming game will see an exchange of goals, but at the same time, we should not expect more than 4 goals. You should consider betting on Correct Score 3-1 for 9.50 as offered by 22bet.
