Frankfurt – Leverkusen 25.08.2012
The best over bet of first round in my eyes,
Frankfurt just promoted from Bundesliga 2, but the whole team have enough experience for Bundesliga, coach Armin Veh has already aim that they need to avoid the relegation battle this season, they are the best promotion team this season, their strongest point of course in attack, they were the best scoring team in Bundesliga 2 last season (76 goals in 34 games), attack midfielder Alexander Meier on his golden period of career, he share the top-scorer glory with Greuther Furth striker Olivier Occean last season, and now Occean even joined Frankfurt, only this two players, had totally scored 34 goals and contributed 17 assistants, the first time cooperation of them in Germany Bundesliga will be full of expected.
But the defence line of Frankfurt is not that strong here, this is the reason why they couldn`t win the last season Bundesliga 2 title, even they bought some new defenders in summer, but still need time for suit the teamwork, today their key defender Djakpa suspended, another defender Amedick absence because injured, their defence line will face problem in front of strong Bayer team, especially Armin Veh with very offence mind in his home game.
Match: Frankfurt – Leverkusen 18.30h
League: Germany 1
Our prediction: over 2.5 goals Odds: 1.90
Leverkusen try to getting younger squad in summer, head coach Sami Hyypia also full of ambition, they just took an easy win against Carl Zeiss Jena in Germany cup first round, Hyypia praised everyone in the team, and said that they are going to attack and fight for all three points in this away game, included the cup and friendly games, all of their recent 4 games finished by over, this one probably will be another goals festival.
