Worth mentioning: Bayer recorded three straight victories in the BundesLiga, while scoring at least three goals, but their performances in the cup competitions have not been as good as they were eliminated from the DFB Pokal (German Cup) and managed just a goalless draw in their Europa League fixture in midweek against Krasnodar. That is the only game from the last five Leverkusen outings that did not produce over 2,5 goals. The same goes for Fortuna Dusseldorf too, as four of their last five games featured over 2,5 goals. Bayer have scored at least three goals in five of their last six home games. Fortuna scored in each of the team last eight away fixtures.
