Bayer Leverkusen will be hoping they can keep hold of their place in the Bundesliga’s top four when they host Union Berlin on Saturday at 2:30pm (UK time).

The hosts return from the winter break in fourth but are level on points with fifth-placed Hoffenheim and just three clear of FC Koln in eighth, with the Bundesliga’s battle for Champions League football set to excite in the second half of the season. Leverkusen were looking comfortable at the start of December, but two defeats from their past three games (one draw) and one of the leakiest defences in the league have them on edge. Union Berlin, meanwhile, are in seventh but just one point behind Leverkusen and among the teams looking to overtake them this weekend. They ended the first half of the campaign with four points from their final two matches, bouncing back from a shock defeat to bottom-of-the-league Greuther Furth.

Bayer Leverkusen team news

Bayer Leverkusen will be without defenders Edmond Tapsoba and Odilon Kossounou, both of whom have been called up for Africa Cup of Nations action.

However, they can welcome back Moussa Diaby after his suspension served in the final before the international break.

Bayer Leverkusen predicted XI: Hradecky; Frimpong, Tah, Hincapie, Bakker; Andrich, Demirbay; Adli, Wirtz, Diaby; Schick.

Union Berlin team news

Star man Taiwo Awoniyi has been called up to the Nigeria squad – reward for his fine performances in the first half of the season, but a blow to Union Berlin nonetheless. Also absent for the visitors are Sheraldo Becker and Pawel Wszolek.

Union Berlin predicted XI: Luthe; Jaeckel, Friedrich, Knoche; Trimmel, Promel, Khedira, Oczipka; Haraguchi; Behrens, Kruse.
