Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat to Dusseldorf was Greuther Furth’s third defeat of the season and the fourth time that Kleeblatter have failed to score.
The home losses to Bayern Munich and Schalke were expected but the defeat to fellow promotees Dusseldorf at the Trolli Arena will have sounded alarm bells for coach Mike Buskens, whose side are struggling for goals and points early on in the season.
Match: Leverkuzen – Greuther Furth 15.30h
League: Germany 1
Our prediction: Home Win Odds: 1.55
Hosts Bayer Leverkusen are not the force of previous years, but Germany internationals Andre Schurlle, Gonzalo Castro and Stefan Kiessling highlight the quality that is still available for manager Sami Hyypia.
Die Lowen have not lost at the BayArena since the end of March and the difference in class should be all too evident with opponents Greuther Furth struggling for goals in the Bundesliga.
