Bayer Leverkusen Preview – Can Bayer find some improvement in their form to progress to the last 16?

This is a critical stage of the season for Bayer Leverkusen both domestically and in Europe. They sit in fifth position in the Bundesliga and now five points outside the Champions League places following a run of just two wins in their last 10 league matches. Defeat in Switzerland last week also means they have it all to do if they are to continue their journey in the Europa League which also presents and opportunity to qualify for the Champions League.

It could have been much for for the Germans, however, who were 3-0 down at half-time last week, eventually losing 4-3 having been on level terms for a period of the second half.

 

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score in the 1st half
23/10

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 25 February)
Bayer can take a lot of confidence from from their home record in the Europa League. In their last 21 home matches in the competition they have lost just twice, winning 12 of them. And they need to ensure they win this match by at least one goal if they are to progress. The three away goals could be crucial come the end of this tie.
Leverkusen did make it to the quarter-finals last year only to lose out to eventual finalists Inter Milan. They will feel they are capable of at least matching that on their best form.

Young Boys Preview – Are the Swiss champions capable of getting result they need to qualify?

Last week’s win over Leverkusen was a continuation of what has been a superb run of form for Young Boys. They are now unbeaten in their last 12 matches in all competitions with their last defeat coming in the middle of December. It’s also just two defeats in their last 18 and as we have come to expect from this group, they are scoring plenty of goals in the process.

The four goals scored against their Bundesliga opposition will come as no surprise for regular viewers of the Swiss champions who are encouraged to play on the front foot and take the game to their opponents by head coach Gerardo Seoane.

Young Boys look set to stroll to a fourth straight Swiss title with a commanding 18 point lead over Basel. That will give them another opportunity of playing Champions League football but the priority before that will be to progress as far in this competition.

If they can get past this stage then it would be the first time Young Boys have got beyond the round of 32 in their history and another indication that they are a club moving forward.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Young Boys Betting Advice

The first leg ebbed and flowed but in the end it was the Swiss outfit who gained an advantage, however it will be one they’ll need to be at their very best to preserve. Bayer’s home form in European competition, particularly the Europa League, is excellent and they are favourites to make it through to the next round.

They will have to be wary of a team who carry plenty of threat in attack and who are also in confident form.

 

Key Facts – Bayer Leverkusen vs Young Boys Betting Tip

  • Leverkusen reached the quarter final of last year’s Europa League, losing 2-1 to Inter
  • Young Boys are unbeaten in their last 12, winning 10 of them including the first leg of this tie
  • If the visitors are to progress it would be the furthest they have advanced in the Europa League

 

Bayer have been inconsistent of late but they do possess a quality above what Young Boys can offer. Home advantage still counts for something in Europe at the moment and that extra bit of class can tell. Having not kept any clean sheets in 13 games, however, I do fancy the visitors to score at least one. Back a Leverkusen win with both teams to score.
