Gerardo Seoane’s Bayer Leverkusen is leading Group G after three rounds in the Europa League, scoring seven points and conceding just two goals. In the last match, the team played a draw with Betis (1:1) on its field, and before that, they beat Celtic (4:0) in Glasgow.
As for the performances in the domestic championship, the “pharmacists” lost a few positions and, after ten rounds, are fourth in the overall standings, lagging behind the leader by eight points. In the previous match, the club lost at home to Wolfsburg (0:2). Patrick Schick and Karim Belarabi have been added to the team’s impressive hospital, who are injured and unlikely to help their partners in the match against the Spaniards.

Betis of Manuel Pellegrini lags behind his current opponent in the Europa League only in additional indicators and has the same seven points in assets. Before the match with Bayer in Seville (1:1), the team defeated Ferencvaros (3:1). In the Spanish championship, the club lost to Atletico (0:3) in the away match and is on the fifth line in the overall standings, four points behind the leader. Paul Aquoku and Hector Bellerin have been injured and will not be able to play in Leverkusen.
Prediction for the match
The match in Seville showed that the rivals are approximately equal in the level of skill and experience of performances. The Spaniards did not have any advantage during the game, while Bayer bypassed the competitor in most components. “Pharmacists” have a number of personnel losses in key positions, but we believe that the deep bench and the factor of the home field will help the club to perform successfully at home.
The guests will be satisfied with a draw this time, but the Germans will try to snatch all three points. They should play more aggressively ahead, which distinguishes the team in home games. We believe that the Leverkusen players prefer the role of the winner of the pair, and we offer to take advantage of this.
Our forecast is Bayer Leverkusen’s victory. At the same time, both teams love and know how to attack. In our opinion, the meeting in Leverkusen will be held according to the following scenario – both clubs will play sharply ahead, hoping to score more than their opponents, and there is an assumption that there will be more goals in this match than in Sevilla. Our second bet will be – a total of more than 2.5 goals. Want to read more football predictions and don’t miss the attractive odds?
