FULL-TIME: LEVERKUSEN 7-1 FÜRTH

Rampant. Schick scores four of seven Bayer goals against winless Fürth. They might have had more, but for the woodwork denying Bellarabi late on. What a display!

FOUR SCHICK GOALS!!!

Fürth are falling apart! Diaby tears away again, cutting a ball back for Bellarabi. He fires against the crossbar, but Schick reacts brilliantly to head in the follow-up for his hat-trick. Bayer come again with Wirtz, who threads a fine ball into the box for Schick, who finishes with aplomb! Four for the Czech striker, seven for Leverkusen!

SCHICK AT THE DOUBLE!

Leverkusen are running away with it! Demirbay wins back possession on the edge of the Bayer area to kick-start a counter. Wirtz sends Diaby in behind on the left-hand side. He could shoot himself, but instead squares for Schick to sweep home from close range. Hat-trick, anyone?

There's concern as Frimpong goes to ground with nobody around him. Fortunately, he's not down for long as the physios give the Bayer bench a welcome thumbs-up to indicate he can continue.

HINCAPIE GOAL!

Leverkusen restore their two-goal advantage. Straight from that Hrgota effort, the ball's worked up towards Schick on the edge of the area. He turns away from a clutch of Fürth shirts, before bending a lovely pass into the box for the run of Hincapie. He has time and space to pick his spot - and pick his spot he does with a low finish under Funk. Three shots on target, three goals for Bayer.

SAFETY FIRST

Hrgota goes up to challenge for a Willems cross. Hradecky's taking no chances as the ball drops towards goal, and palms it over for a corner, which comes to nothing.

CLOSE!

Schick pulls out wide and feeds Wirtz in the centre. The 18-year-old clips a stunning ball over the top of the Fürth defence, but Diaby's just offside as he spoons over on the volley from inside the area. A man of his talents should have buried that!

He helps it on to Diaby, whose right-footed cross is met with a sensational first-time Adli finish. He's mid-air as he connects - that's a beauty!

WATCH: LEIPZIG 1-3 LEVERKUSEN

Fürth lost 6-2 to Hoffenheim last time out, but Leverkusen had no such troubles in Leipzig. Florian Wirtz's fifth goal of the Bundesliga season paved the way for an impressive away win.

POLAR OPPOSITES

Fürth are bottom, as Seoane touched on. They're winless, and have only one point to show for their efforts after 13 matches. Throw in their goal difference of -29, and it makes for the worst start to a Bundesliga season in history. At the opposite end of the spectrum, third-placed Leverkusen can move to within three points of second with a win.

SEOANE TALKS UP FÜRTH

"The table situation at Greuther Fürth is one thing, the performance they have shown in many games is the other," warned Leverkusen coach Gerardo Seoane at his pre-match press conference. "They try to play brave soccer and to attack their opponent early, in order to not only defend. They play with a high pressing and defend with courage. We want to prevent the opponent from getting access to the ball by circulating it faster and switching sides more quickly. We will play at home and we want to bring the energy from the last game against RB Leipzig with us. Nevertheless, every game starts from zero and we are prepared to be focused and concentrated right from the start."

WATCH: INSIDE THE FÜRTH CHANGING ROOM

FÜRTH TEAM NEWS

Things are quite different for Fürth, who are in desperate need of fixing things after just one point from the first 13 games. Three of the back four who started the 6-3 defeat to Hoffenheim are out, with only Maximilian Bauer remaining. But the front three of Branimir Hrgota, Dickson Abiama and Jamie Leweling do get the nod again after their exploits last week.

LEVERKUSEN TEAM NEWS

Gerardo Seoane decides to stick with the approach of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ as he names the same team that started last week’s 3-1 win in Leipzig. It includes striker Patrik Schick after his recovery from an ankle injury, with Lucas Alario on the bench. Expect to see them swap at some point as the latter continues his search for full fitness as well.
