Bayer Leverkusen Prediction

Bayer Leverkusen have got half the job done after holding Russian side Krasnodar to a 0-0 draw at the Stadion FK Krasnodar in last week’s first leg, and the German club will now no doubt fancy their chances of progressing through to the quarter-finals of the Europa league with the upcoming home leg on Thursday night.

The hosts suffered just one defeat throughout their group campaign in Group A and finished top by a three point margin ahead of runners-up Zurich, with a strong set of results on home turf which included wins against AEK Larnaca 4-2 and a 1-0 win over Zurich as well as a point in a 1-1 draw with Ludogorets.

Overall form at home has been impressive for Bayer Leverkusen as they’ve won seven of their last eight matches in all competitions including recent back-to-back wins over Bayern Munich 3-1 and Fortuna Dusseldorf 2-0 in the Bundesliga.

Midfielders Havertz (9 goals) along with forwards Volland (8 goals), Brandt (4 goals) and Alario (3 goals) will provide the goal threats for the hosts here.


Key-Facts – Bayer Leverkusen v Krasnodar

  • Bayer Leverkusen have won 7 of their last 8 matches at home
  • Bayer leverkusen have lost just 1 of their last 9 home matches in the EL
  • Krasnodar have won just 2 of their last 9 away from home in the EL


Krasnodar Prediction

Onto Krasnodar, and the visitors look to have their work cut out in Leverkusen on Thursday night if they’re to make it through to the last eight of the Europa League after failing to make home advantage count in last week’s 0-0 draw in the first leg in Russia.

Krasnodar finished runners-up in Group J behind group winners, Sevilla, on goal difference as the Russian outfit recorded a 100% record at their Stadion FK Krasnodar with wins over Sevilla, Standard Liege and Akhisarspor, but they were unable to register a fourth win on the trot when they hosted Bayer Leverkusen last week.

Krasnodar’s task looks even harder when looking at their past results away from home in this competition too as the Russian outfit have managed to record just two wins from their last nine matches on their travels at this level, which were victories at Lyngby and Akhisarspor.

Betting Tips Verdict

The difference in class between these two teams should be evident in this second leg in Germany as hosts Bayer Leverkusen should record a comfortable win here.
