Preview: Hamburgers SV – Bayer Leverkusen


Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Hamburger SV are in one of the worst runs of their history, failing to win a single game since November 2017. And while they are struggling on the bottom of the table, in-from Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to add yet another three points to their record as they have their eyes set on European football.

Despite a shaky start of the season, Hamburg have claimed two points out of their last three games under their newly-appointed manager Berndt Hollerbach.

Bayer Leverkusen enter the game on the back of a surprising 0-2 loss to Hertha Berlin at home and will be definitely looking to bounce back and return to the winning path.

Players to watch: Hamburger’s forward Filip Kostic is the leading scorer of the club with four goals this season, which shows that they are indeed struggling when it comes to scoring goals.

Kevin Volland on the other side has 10 goals this season, but has scored just once in 2018. Will he be able to rediscover his goal-scoring form against Hamburg?
