Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to maintain their excellent form in the Bundesliga on Saturday, as they host Stuttgart at BayArena. The hosts could cut the gap on Bayern Munich at the top of the table with a win, while Stuttgart are desperate for the points to move closer to safety.
Bayer Leverkusen have been in excellent form over recent weeks in the Bundesliga, and will be looking for a fourth straight win in the league on Saturday, as they come up against Stuttgart at BayArena. A victory could see them close the gap on league leaders Bayern Munich, and also put them to within two of second-place Borussia Dortmund.
Only the top two in the Bundesliga have won more games than Leverkusen this season, but draws have been somewhat of an Achilles heel. They have been held on five occasions, compared to the one draw that both Dortmund and Bayern have picked up.
However, Leverkusen should be confident, as they have picked up victories in each of their last three matches in the Bundesliga. Their latest win was a 5-2 hammering of Borussia Dortmund last weekend, as Florian Wirtz, Robert Andrich, Jonathan Tah and Moussa Diaby scored in a famous away victory.
Stuttgart are in a bleak position at this stage of the campaign, as they could be relegated to the second tier. They are second bottom in the Bundesliga, and are currently four from safety after 21 games this term have been played. They have won the second fewest number of games in the league this season, and have been beaten the second-highest number of times.
Recent form also goes against them, as Stuttgart have lost four of their previous five, which includes three straight defeats. Their most recent defeat was at home against Eintracht Frankfurt last Saturday.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart Head to Head

Bayer Leverkusen vs Stuttgart Prediction
