Leverkusen's crushing 3-0 defeat to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim last time out has seen Roger Schmidt's men lose ground at the top of the standings. There is no doubting the quality in the squad, with Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez, Hakan Calhanoglu and Julian Brandt, among others, boasting a wealth of attacking options, and Die Werkself will view this game as crucial to their aim of returning to the upper reaches of the table.
