Bayer Leverkusen will be aiming to extend their winning run to five games when they take on Koln in the Bundesliga round 24. The BayArena outfit are on the right track to lift their first Bundesliga trophy, but Xabi Alonso must warn his men against complacency. Bayer Leverkusen survived Mainz at the weekend and they are seen as hot favourites to win Sunday’s clash as well.

Even though all Exequiel Palacios, Victor Boniface, and Arthur remain in the recovery room, away win should be considered as Bayer Leverkusen have been producing excellent displays under Xabi Alonso this term. The Billy Goats, on the other hand, managed to hold Stuttgart to a 1-1 draw in their last league match, but they will have a mountain to climb against the league leaders. Timo Hubers is a major doubt, while all Davie Selke, Luca Waldschmidt, and Mark Uth remain in the recovery room.

Prediction: 1-2 (Bayer Leverkusen)
