STATS expert Stats Bet (@statsbet) has found value in Saturday’s Bundesliga action.
Bayer Leverkusen v Koln | Saturday 28th October 2017, 14:30
Bayer Leverkusen host Koln at the BayArena and goals should flow for the hosts. Die Werkself fans have been entertained this season with an average of 3.75 goals per-game in total and Bayer bagging 2.75 of them per-game.
Heiko Herrlich’s men have been on the front foot from the first whistle and have notched in both halves in each of their outings at the BayArena. It’s no surprise to see the home side sitting in the top five across the two major shot metrics with Leverkusen third for shot ratio and second for shots on-target ratio.
With a their xG ratio standing at 0.73 and with Die Werkself collecting eight points from a possible 12 in front of their home supporters, we should expect another strong display.
Visitors Koln have had a horrendous start to the season (W0-D2-L7), scoring only three goals and conceding 17. The Billy Goats have lost 80% of their games on the road, conceding in both halves in 60%, and the visitors have faced a mass of 90 shots (30% on-target) whilst shipping an average of 2.2 goals per-game.
I’ll take Bayer Leverkusen to score in both halves at 20/23 (Coral).
