Expert Betting Tips
Bayer Leverkusen’s form is beyond commendable and they are fully deserving of credit. Beating Bayern Munich will be an extra motivation for them as they face the remaining matches of the season. For Schlake, they have a lot at stake and they need all the points they can get. For most parts of the season, they preferred to settle for a draw rather than lose all 3. I think Schalke will try to pin the Leverkusen team to a draw even if they don’t score a goal.
