LEV vs UNN Dream11: Bayer Leverkusen will host follow Bundesliga team Union Berlin in DFB Pokal Cup quarterfinal match at BayArena on Wednesday night (IST). Berlin came through their third-round with a 1-0 win against SC Verl, while Leverkusen defeated VfB Stuttgart 2-1 in their third-round assignment.
Leverkusen are unbeaten in the last four league games, winning three times. They drew the last game 1-1 at RB Leipzig at the weekend, a result which didn't do any good to either team.
Leverkusen are 5th on the current Budelisga table, a sign of regression if we consider that they finished fourth last season.
That said, Leverkusen are still averaging more points per game this season than what they managed during the 2018-19 campaign.
Union Berlin have exceeded every expectation level.

The feat is even more impressive considering the likes of Werder Bremen, Eintracht Frankfurt, Augsburg and Hertha Berlin are below them on the points table.
