Meanwhile, Leverkusen were beaten just once (1-2 at Hoffenheim) in their last six league fixtures but rebounded mightily to nail four wins and one draw in their next five games. One of those wins was away when they prevailed at Union Berlin 3-2, whilst the lone draw was 1-1 at RB Leipzig.BIG WIN AT HOME
