Bundesliga Matchday 3 Betting Tips – Bayer 04 Leverkusen
Bayer Leverkusen remains the big favourite in this clash despite starting the season off with successive defeats which puts the club at the foot of the table for now.
Gerardo Seoane needs to swiftly get his team back on track even though he is missing some key players from the squad. Lukás Hrádecky is suspended and his deputy Andrey Lunev has picked up an injury therefore 3rd choice keeper Niklas Lomb will step up to the plate. Jonathan Tah and Edmond Tapsoba will form the back-4 with Jeremie Frimpong at right-back and Mitchel Bakker on the left-side of the defence.
Robert Andrich is still on the sidelines so Exequiel Palacios and Charles Aránguiz are set to stay as the central-midfield duo. Florian Wirtz and Karim Bellarabi are long-term absentees so Nadiem Amiri might come in for fellow new signing Adam Hlozek on the left-wing with Moussa Diaby on the opposite flank. Sardar Azmoun is likely to be the free-roaming supporting-striker behind the centre-forward Patrik Schick.

Bundesliga Matchday 3 Betting Tips – TSG Hoffenheim
After losing the opening fixture, Hoffenheim had to earn its 3 points the hard way last week which has pushed the club up to 8th position in the standings.
Despite making numerous additions to the squad during the summer, new manager André Breitenreiter has yet to find a solution to the defensive problems even though Hoffenheim continues to be a potent force up front. Skipper Oliver Baumann was the goalkeeper while Kevin Vogt, Stanley Nsoki and Ozan Kabak formed the 3-man backline with the latter scoring a crucial goal to open his tally for the club.
Sebastian Rudy has fallen down the pecking list but might be handed his first start of the season to take the anchor-role in the middle of the park while Grischa Prömel and Christoph Baumgartner will be the other two central-midfielders around him. Robert Skov will be the wing-back on the right with Angeliño on the left. Georginio Rütter and Andrej Kramaric could form the centre-forward pair for this fixture.
