Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League
Bayer Leverkusen welcome Tottenham to the BayArena on Tuesday evening, in the third round of matches from the Champions League group stages.
The German side come into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat against Werder Bremen.
Goals from Junuzovic (13) and Manneh (59) were enough to give Bremen all three points, despite Calhanoglu equalising in the 27th minute.
That result leaves Leverkusen in 10th position in the Bundesliga, a gap of seven points between themselves and the leaders Bayern Munich.
Leverkusen In Mixed Form
Leverkusen had gone into the weekend’s fixtures in great form, having beaten second-placed Borussia Dortmund 2-0 before the international break.
They have remained unbeaten in their opening two matches, drawing against both Monaco and CSKA Moskva.
That leaves them third in the group, behind both the visitors Tottenham and French side Monaco, a result in this match could see them move top of the group.

They will be looking to register their first win of the competition this season, they will also be looking for great consistency.
Their overall record against English sides is poor, they have played 10, won 3, drawn 2 and lost 5 of those matches.
A 5-0 defeat against Manchester City in the 13/14 Champions League was their last fixture against an English side.
Tottenham Strive For Consistency
Tottenham travel to the BayArena on the back of a 1-1 draw against West Brom at the weekend.
It’s a result that Mauricio Pochettino will have been disappointed with, his side failing to break down a stubborn Baggies defence.
Former player Nacer Chadli opened the scoring in the 82nd minute, with Dele Alli equalising seven minutes later to keep Spurs unbeaten record intact.
Tottenham have been in excellent form this season, they have tasted defeat just once, with a 2-1 defeat on matchday one against Monaco at Wembley.
Spurs Target Progression
Tottenham will have targeted progression as the minimum requirement in this group, despite the presence of some top sides.
The opening defeat against Monaco was a setback but they put in an improved performance against CKSA Moskva.
