Arminia Bielefeld are set to play hosts to Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday at the Bielefelder Alm in their next Bundesliga fixture.

Arminia Bielefeld come into this game following a 5-0 loss to Union Berlin nearly two weeks ago in the Bundesliga.

Goals from young Japanese winger Keita Endo, midfielder Robert Andrich, Dutch attacker Sheraldo Becker, Germany international Max Kruse and forward Cedric Teuchert secured a comfortable win for Urs Fischer's side.

Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, beat Borussia Monchengladbach 4-3 at the BayArena 10 days ago in the Bundesliga.

A brace from Argentina international Lucas Alario and goals from young winger Leon Bailey and Austrian midfielder Julian Baumgartlinger ensured victory for Peter Bosz's side.

A brace from Germany international Lars Stindl and a goal from midfielder Valentino Lazaro proved to be mere consolation for Borussia Monchengladbach.

Arminia Bielefeld vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction

Arminia Bielefeld come into this game in poor form, having lost their last five league games. Young Japan international Ritsu Doan, on loan from PSV Eindhoven, is a highly-rated player who needs to step up, while veteran striker Fabian Klos looks likely to lead the line.

Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, are in fine form. They have won four of their last five games, and in striker Lucas Alario have a player in fine goalscoring form.

Despite losing Kai Havertz and Kevin Volland in the summer, Leverkusen are fourth in the league table and have produced some good performances.

Bayer Leverkusen are a team in form and should be able to emerge victorious over Arminia Bielefeld.

Prediction: Bayer Leverkusen 4-0 Arminia Bielefeld
